Our preschool program supports and enhances all aspects of each child’s development – cognitive, spiritual, social, emotional, and physical. This is accomplished through “child-centered” units of study that integrate all curriculum areas –pre-reading, reading, writing, math, science, social studies, art, and music. These units, which are groups of activities related to themes, are used as a means of providing meaningful experiences. Unit topics that are of interest and relevance to children are selected. A variety of materials are incorporated for hands-on learning and active participation. A print-rich environment is provided to stimulate the development of language and literacy skills. Activities are accomplished through large groups, small groups, individual activities, and learning centers. Units that embrace multi-cultural and non-stereotyping themes are incorporated to enable children to develop self-esteem, as well as the ability to understand and appreciate people of different cultures, races, sexes, and abilities. Opportunities for parent involvement are provided and encouraged.
