Our Program for our Preschool 1 class – ages 3 to 4
Our Preschool program starts on last week in August and goes through first week in June. Most of the learning happens in the morning, though we will work individually with children who miss their morning learning time. Our three’s will learn to recognize letters of alphabet and numbers 1-10, colors and shapes, concepts of opposites, calendar and weather, etc.
We teach them life and social skills, help them to learn to gain independence; through everyday interaction with other children they learn how to take turns, share, and use words to communicate their feelings.
We have new learning topic every week: we incorporate art and craft activities, science experiments, circle time and building with blocks and manipulatives; we have music and movement time, finger plays and games; dramatic play and cooking; sand / water play (in warm season) and field trips (year-round).
