Learning Environment

The most important goals of our preschool curriculum are for the children to become confident and enthusiastic learners.

The four objectives for development that address the above goals are as follows:

  1. Social/Emotional: to help children develop independence, self-confidence, and self-control. To follow rules and routines, to make friends, and to learn what it means to be a part of a group.

  2. Physical: to increase children’s large muscle skills by doing tasks, such as balancing, running, jumping, climbing, throwing and catching. We also concentrate on small muscle or fine motor skills by drawing, cutting, coloring, buttoning, stringing beads, writing, etc.

  3. Cognitive: to acquire thinking skills, such as the ability to solve problems, ask questions and think logically, as well as, to sort, classify, compare, count, make patterns and use materials and their imaginations to show what they have learned.

  4. Language: to use words to communicate with others, listen to and participate in conversations with others, understand the purpose of print, recognize letters and words, and begin to write for a purpose. In addition to all of the opportunities that occur in each classroom, the preschool emergent literacy program provides additional opportunities for exposure to all the facets of all of the objectives.

Every child is a unique individual with different learning styles – visual, auditory, tactile/kinesthetic or a combination of several. Through the activities that are planned in each classroom, the materials chosen, the daily schedules, and the communications among children and adults, we seek to accomplish the goals and objectives to have very successful students, each in his/her own way.

We use utilize portions of Creative Curriculum©, Handwriting Without Tears© and Conscious Discipline© in order to design our curriculum. The staff also incorporates other creative ideas learned through research and training to make our curriculum the best that it can be.
