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.
We consistently evaluate each child based on age-appropriate benchmarks in order to assess individual growth and development. This allows us to communicate with families and set realistic goals that will set your child up for success and the pride that comes with achievement. Above are some of the basic milestones we work towards for a child entering the preschool classroom.
