Mission Statement

The Preschool will seek to develop in each Child, the skills and attitudes needed to ensure successful progress, as he/she enters into the exciting adventure of formal learning.

Philosophy

Young children learn best through play. Preschool education gives teachers the responsibility for arranging the classroom so that no matter what the child chooses to play with, learning will occur. Using their bodies climbing, jumping and running will develop the gross motor skills. Math, reading, writing and social studies are all learned through hands on activities appropriate to the childís age. Teachers and parents working together encourage the development of independence, creativity and the desire to always learn more. It is a process that is important in early childhood education.

For your convenience your preschooler can start preschool any given month after the age of three and when he/she becomes toilet trained, even if sessions have already begun.

What do we do in Preschool?
 

Circle time
Is a group gathering during which we share ideas, plans, and observations. Circle activities are designed to stimulate youngsters thinking, enrich their social skills, and expand their attention spans.
 

Gross Motor Activities
Give children the opportunity to use their muscles as well as their imagination as they engage in fun and healthy exercises, such as running, jumping, and climbing.
 

Music Activities
Promote youngsters listening skills, creative expression, and social skills. In music children can explore sound, volume, tempo and rhythm.
 

Story time
Is designed to help youngsters develop an appreciation and enjoyment of literature. Reading activities enhance childrenís vocabulary and comprehension skills, and also expand their knowledge base.
 

Fine-Motor Activities
Help improve small-muscle development and eye coordination. Some common items found in the fine motor/manipulative includes puzzles, beads and laces, pegboards, crayons and scissors.
 

Dramatic-Play Activities
Help children express themselves, practice life skills, improve social skills, increase self esteem, build vocabulary and solve problems as well. Dramatic play is just plain fun.
 

Sand and Water Activities
Allow youngsters to experiment with textures and the properties of different substances. These activities also promote the development of other skills, such as math, science, and language.
 

Art Activities
Help youngsters creatively express their thoughts and feelings. They help reinforce fine-motor skills and concept development in areas such as colors, shapes, and size relationships.
 

Sciences Activities
