Social and emotional development as well as independence are extremely important during the preschool years and this is what our program is all about!! Children learn to help themselves, make choices, and follow direction while cooperating and getting along with others. Both small and large group activities are explored, such as music, movement, circle time, art, and science. Sharing and communication with classmates is encouraged, as well as independent use of the bathroom! Students rotate through a variety of learning centers that stimulate imagination and facilitate cooperativeness while sharing with and caring for others.
They will work on their literacy and language skills such as writing, letter recognition and sounds, as well as working with colors, shapes and numbers. During these theme based activities, everyone in the classroom gets to enjoy a more one on one experience with the each other. Each day students will also participate in dance, gymnastics or music. Understanding music helps with child development in so many ways: positive problem-solving skills, self-expression, growth of memory skills, and ultimately an understanding of music can help foster a positive self–esteem and self-confidence. It is also very important for preschool aged children to be physically active multiple times throughout the day. Rain or shine we will get our silly’s out in the dance studio, in the gym, or on the playground. Active bodies, active minds!
