- About Us
To engage and nurture your child, we provide a balance of freedom and instruction. Our early childhood education classroom is designed as a learning community, where your child not only builds skills vital to success in kindergarten, but also gains respect for others, and a strong sense of confidence.
The Preschool program provides a focus on:
The STEM-inspired classroom provides materials and experiences to develop critical thinkers and problem-solvers. Content is learned through investigation, play, and focused intentional teaching. Science, technology, engineering, and math are integrated throughout, in eight learning centers.
Creativity, problem-solving, and self-expression are developed in this center, as children discover different art techniques, color concepts, and cooperation.
Children build hand-eye coordination as they discover different shapes and learn concepts such as counting, sorting, and patterning.
Through cooperative pretend play, children develop early writing and reading skills, explore emotional expression, and learn how to make sense of real life.
Experiences in this center begin with sorting and comparing and build to concepts such as counting and numeral recognition.
Children love to move, dance, and sing. This center helps them to work on physical coordination, cooperation, and communication while having fun.
Children are encouraged to observe and question, through activities focused on plants, animals, weather, and the seasons.
The building blocks of literacy are established in this center, as children develop print awareness, story comprehension, and listening skills.
By exploring rhymes and sounds, letter recognition and formation, children begin the process of developing communication and early writnig skills.
Early Innovators™, our STEM curriculum, cultivates strong innovators and thinkers. Children learn best when making connections between diverse skills and concepts. We integrate science, technology, engineering, and math throughout the classroom. Teachers use our digital lesson planning tool to generate customized curriculum, based on assessment and observation, to meet the needs of each child, as they progress along 10 developmental scales.
