Preschool aged children are expanding their knowledge base and exploring many new interests. At this age, children begin to investigate the workings of a widening world and experiment with their emerging use of language.
The Preschool program offers a rich variety of projects and activities that build upon established foundations for learning while focusing on advancing language ability, mathematical reasoning, and scientific thought. Children develop independently and in small groups. Learning centers offer guided experiences that encompass all the skills and understanding necessary for optimum development and academic success.
The program for Preschool children incorporates curriculum elements that include language development, critical thinking, math concepts, science, and an awareness of the world. Activities and projects are organized to enhance your child’s learning experience. The curriculum is designed to prepare children for kindergarten including all social and pre-academic skills necessary to succeed. Following completion of the program, your child will be well prepared for their educational career and life.
Activities build on the following skills:
Physical — fine and gross motor activities with sensory experiences.
Social/Emotional — building self esteem, interaction with others, cooperation, manners, sharing, taking turns, safety, self help, independence and following directions.
There are activities in six areas daily to enhance cognitive learning:
Language arts — seven multicultural languages — English, Spanish, French, Japanese, Chinese, German and Sign. We will be adding two new languages — Hungarian and Italian.
Mathematics — counting, number relationships, shapes, patterning, classifying, sorting, measuring, estimating, problem solving, reasoning.
Science — investigating, observing, predicting, comparing, ordering.
Cultural Learning — learning about American culture and other cultures celebrated all around the world.
Music and Rhythm — creating and appreciating music and rhythm in everyday learning with theme based music (e.g. “Build a Campfire” when studying the topic of camping).
Art — creative expression for the budding young artist. In addition, through art projects, we provide exposure to many mediums, textures and types of art and foster skills such as cutting with scissors, fine motor dexterity, and following instructions.
