In our preschool classroom, children are given the opportunity to develop their social skills through small group activities and by interacting and sharing with their classmates during circle time and throughout the day. The children are encouraged to develop their creative interests by choosing from a variety of stimulating activities in our dramatic play and art areas. Gross and fine motor skills are developed through participation in obstacle courses, outdoor play, art projects, use of manipulatives and other fun activities.
The preschoolers develop independence and self esteem as they learn to serve food, clean up for themselves and care for their classroom environment. Their cognitive skills are challenged as they explore various science, math, social studies and language activities. Each day our preschoolers enjoy singing, finger plays, block play, exercises, stories and sensorial experiences. These activities help the children discover positive feelings for themselves and others and a love of learning.
Preschoolers are introduced to computers through developmentally appropriate software that is open-ended and calls for thinking and active problem solving. The software allows the children to determine the pace and direction of the experience and use creativity.
