3 Year Old Preschool

The main emphasis of our 3 year old class is on the social development. Our goal is to allow these children to feel positive and secure in a school environment while developing a love of learning.  We value play as an appropriate way of learning and assist children with their communication skills, and relationships with other children, seeing that they engage in solitary, parallel, and cooperative play. Children are introduced to a variety of skills, such as writing, cutting, counting, shapes, colors, and allow the children to develop these skills at their own rate.

Our 4 year old class goes another step further.  The main emphasis of our 4 year old program continues to place value on the social development, while adding more focus on the cognitive development as we begin to concentrate on kindergarten readiness skills.  The 4 year old daily schedule transitions from a self-directed routine to a more structured routine as the year progresses to better prepare a student for kindergarten classrooms.

Enrichment (Older 4 - 5 year olds) 
 
The Enrichment program provides a link between preschool and kindergarten for older 4 and 5 year old children.  We continue to place great value on social development, but the primary focus becomes developing kindergarten readiness skills.  We enrich the child's development through active exploratory learning centers, and promote a positive attitude towards learning.
