Because preschoolers (typically 3-4 years old) are more adventuresome and curious about their surroundings, our teachers stay one step ahead of their students. Each day is thoroughly planned out with a variety of hands-on activities to encourage learning and socialization. Students will be taught to write their names and recognize letters, numbers, colors and shapes. Our teachers also begin to introduce concepts like opposites, identify emotions and basic directional skills (over/under etc.). At this time we put extra focus on self awareness for each child. We also foster independence by helping children master self-help skills.
On a bi-annual basis, we do a formal evaluation based off age-appropriate benchmarks in order to assess each child’s growth and development. Above are some of the basic milestones we work towards for a child entering the preschool classroom.
