Classroom Facilities

The Preschool room is equipped with cubbies inside the room which promotes independence as the children dress and change themselves before heading outdoors. Children have access to their belongings and begin to take responsibility for keeping their things organized. The bathrooms are located just down the hall from our Preschool Room.

Education

The Preschool Room is the last stop before children head off to Kindergarten and we strive to ensure that all of the children have the necessary skills and abilities to be successful at school. Our main focus is building critical thinking and problem solving skills. These skills build the foundation for all other learning experiences.

At Preschool Time, the children work in small groups or 1:1 with their teacher on concepts and skills such as: printing their first and last name, identifying letter names and sounds, shapes, colors, counting, patterning, etc.

Important concepts and skills are also targeted throughout the day in a variety of ways such as during dramatic play, Montessori trays, open-ended activities and conversation with classroom teachers.

Activities

Preschoolers continue to develop their independence and critical thinking skills through open-ended toys, dramatic play stations, interactions with childcare providers and other learning opportunities. The Preschool Room has a weekly theme which incorporates a variety of activities, crafts and themes.

We are currently working with a local Yoga studio to develop a Preschool Yoga program. Preschoolers develop their baking and cooking skills and engage in sensory bin play.

Toys in the Preschool Room are rotated regularly.

Friendship

Preschoolers continue to develop deeper friendships and bonds with their classmates. Staff actively works to demonstrate and encourage inclusive behavior. Staff allows children to begin to solve disputes and disagreements with their friends and offers support if needed.
