Day in the Life

General School Mission

Our weekday preschool is a carefully and thoughtfully designed program that offers positive growing experiences for preschoolers. An excellent staff composed of an experienced Director and degreed teachers encourages preschoolers to develop physically, mentally, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. Each class provides a loving and trusting environment where positive guidance and developmentally appropriate activities are provided. In addition, it is our goal to strengthen families.

A Typical Day

Westoak Woods Baptist Preschool utilizes the Weekday Early Education Learning Curriculum as the foundational curriculum. WEE Learn is centered upon units of study lasting one or two weeks. Age appropriate activities are suggested for learning centers. Large group experiences extend the learning by encouraging children to verbally express their own ideas. Chidren are encouraged to solve problems on their own under the wise observation of experienced teachers. In addition, teachers work with children individually each day, carefully noting their progress. We believe that preschoolers learn through their senses. Every effort is made to incorporate this method of learning into all aspects of teaching. Three an four year olds are introduced to letter recognition on a phonetic basis. Pre-reading and pre-math activities are included. Children are never pressured to learn academically beyond what they are ready to learn.
