2, 3 and 5 Day Programs

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

 

Our 3 Year Old Program focuses on the emotional and social development of the child.  This is a crucial, fundamental building block for children.  The preschool group experience offers a tremendous opportunity for little ones to interact with each other while simultaneously learning about themselves.  It is a wonderful environment in which to build self-esteem and offers them experiences that they can then take home and share with the family.

 

The developmentally appropriate, hands-on activities expose the children to the following skills:

1.       Pre-math                                       4.  Fine motor skills

2.       Pre-reading                                   5.  Small & Large muscle development

3.       Pre-writing                                     6. Language Development

 

Curriculum Resources used:

A Letter of the Week alphabet puppet program, introduces letter recognition and phonemic awareness.  This is done through Learning Centers, Circle Time, and Games. The Handwriting Without Tears curriculum is used for fine motor development and early writing skills.

The Curriculum is enriched through our Discovery Garden - an outdoor classroom, as well as monthly themes, which incorporate social studies, science, health & safety, pre-math, and art.  Being a Christian Preschool we also highlight a monthly Biblical theme integrating Biblical Truth throughout the curriculum.  Each day brings many opportunities for the teacher to naturally teach about the Love of Jesus and how He would have us be a good friend.  A thematically based curriculum lends itself to making connections between concepts, ideas, language development, and vocabulary building.                                                                    

The children are exposed to good literature during Story Time and Library Time.  They are encouraged to read at home through our Read-a-Loud Program, and to contribute to the Library through our Birthday Book Club.
