The perfect stepping stone to Preschool, Early Preschool is designed to meet the needs of 30- to 42-month-old children. They learn to work with others, follow directions, self-regulate, follow routines, and develop self-help skills to become independent learners.
This program offers:
This classroom fosters collaboration and independence, as children learn to follow instructions and work with their classmates. Independence is nurtured as children develop self-help and self-regulation skills. We also explore responsibility, conflict resolution, and behavior expectations. Learning experiences are featured in six classroom areas.
Sensory exploration and creative art experiences enable children to explore self-expression and their imagination.
Investigations and explorations are conducted using a variety of materials available for counting, sorting, classifying, and measuring activities.
A variety of materials are on hand for children to learn about construction, creating inventions, and discovering how things fit and work together.
This area is for reading, writing, playing with puppets, and letting your imagination soar, as you get cozy in a quiet, comfortable space.
Children are encouraged to put their energy into positive movement, while learning gross motor skills, coordination, and spatial awareness.
It's make-believe time. In this collaborative space, children will use their imaginations, dress up and play different roles to explore their creativity.
