Welcome to Preschool! We are super excited for the upcoming school year with your child. Our program places a strong emphasis on teacher-directed learning as well as child-directed play. While planning learning activities, we take into account various learning styles and interests to plan well-rounded, fun and engaging, developmentally appropriate curriculum to meet the needs of each child. We help each child grow in understanding knowledge and appreciation of their environment and to enable each child to achieve success, gain confidence and acquire the skills necessary for Pre-Kindergarten. Our 3 main areas of focus are Personal, Social, and Emotional Development. This area of learning is about emotional wellbeing, knowing who you are, where you fit in and feeling good about yourself. It is about developing respect for others, social competence, and a positive attitude to learning. Next is Communication, Language, and Literacy. All children will be given opportunities to talk and communicate in a widening range of situations, to respond to adults and to each other, to practice and extend the range of vocabulary and communications skills they use and to listen carefully. The last area is Physical Development. There will be opportunities for all children to develop and practice their fine and gross motor skills and to increase their understanding of how their bodies work and what they need to do to be healthy and safe.
