Ages 33 months – 5 years old
Welcome to the Preschool:
We believe that play is the child’s work. We provide opportunities, encouragement, and guidance. We give the children creative and literacy experiences that encourage exploration of letters and sounds. We use sight words and a letter of the week to encourage development of literary skills. Our teachers focus activities on both individual growth and quality group experiences for the children with a fun, exciting, and hand- on approach. Our preschool classroom is equipped with developmentally appropriate materials and equipment to enable the children to learn and grow.
We provide many opportunities for conversation, sharing ideas, asking questions, and helping each other. We watch for times when children can become peer tutors; each child is an expert at something. We help children use that expertise to help others in the classroom.
This age is an exciting one in a child’s life. They are enthusiastic learners as they advance in pre-reading and pre-math skills and experiencing the world around them. Socially they are beginning to see situations from the other person’s perspective and truly enjoy cooperative play. Challenging themselves physically and gaining better control of their fine and gross motor skills is another accomplishment. Using their language skills to express their emotions as well as beginning to empathize with others can also been seen at this stage. Finally we enjoy learning about who God is; and the wonderful work He does in our lives.
