Our programs strive to provide preschoolers with a safe, healthy, stimulating and caring early learning environment. Activities and routines are designed around children’s interests and developmental needs. The preschool classrooms are divided into interest areas such as blocks, dramatic play, books, puzzles, manipulatives, art exploration and science discovery. The daily schedules offer opportunities for children to make choices about what they want to explore and learn more about while also providing structured and facilitated activities to help support children as they acquire new skills.
Mixed-age classrooms provide opportunities for preschool children, ages 2 1/5 to 5 years, to interact with other preschoolers of varying ages and abilities. This model encourages peer modeling and fosters the development of leadership skills for older children. For the younger children, this model offers a variety of increased opportunities for development including social skills and language development.
Classroom staff provide safe and consistent opportunities for children to learn and grow through trusted relationships and regular routines. The daily routines are designed to provide varied social and developmental experiences, which include small group activities, special projects, quiet/rest time, large muscle play and meals.
We are committed to partnering with families and elementary schools to promote school readiness and strengthen the kindergarten transition process.
