General School Mission

We at Pilgrim Preschool support and assist you with your child’s early learning development. It is an extremely important time to help them explore their environment, discover their talents and develop the skills needed to transition to Kindergarten. This fun, creative and age-appropriate program, encourages your child to learn practical life skills and values through a thematic based curriculum, utilizing multiple learning centers and constructive play.

We believe that children learn best through constructive play. We foster learning by providing a richly interesting and stimulating environment with learning centers. Your child can discover, explore, and create, according to their interests. Very important goals to achieve are promoting positive self-esteem, a sense of accomplishment and belonging within each child. We allow plenty of time for your child to interact with their environment and encourage them to form friendships along with having wholesome fun.

Your child’s real-life Pilgrim Preschool classroom experience, combined with creative constructive play, plus a positive learning environment, will help encourage your child’s interests and strengthen their confidence through a lifetime journey of learning.

Pilgrim Preschool – A Great Place to Learn.

A Typical Day

A Great Place to Learn
Morning Carpet Time:
All child photos are placed in the pocket chart. During “Carpet Time,” your child can receive a job or report the current weather. Snack helper of the day is announced to the group. The letter of the week is also introduced, along with alphabet story/puppet time.
We review phone numbers, addresses, birthdays and parents names while finger spelling your child’s first name in Sign Language.

Constructive Play:
Your child can discover and explore multiple unit based Learning Centers, theme related
Dramatic Play areas Library Corner, Art Easel board, and the Computer Station.

Your child learns sign language skills along with appreciating a variety of music and fun
movement activities.

Super Snack Time
All wash hands and form a line for snack time in the other classroom.
Your child will enjoy a healthy snack while proudly pouring 100% juice or milk into
their own cup from the child-size carafe.

Large Motor Play
Allows your child to participate in
group activities, games, climbing, riding toys, building with
blocks and just having wholesome fun.

Story Time-Dismissal
Story time builds listening skills and imagination with the use of creative storytelling
techniques – reading, using flannel boards and listening to books on tape. “Rexella” the Dinosaur puppet ends the day
with a friendly goodbye hug.
