§ The Preschool teaching team provides care and education for 16 children 3 years through 5 years old
§ Preschool children have the opportunity to participate in large and small motor activities, dramatic play, art, science, and pre-reading and pre-math activities. Weather permitting, outdoor play is a part of each day's activities, as well as relaxing, playing with friends, and sitting with a teacher to listen to a story
§ Observations by the teaching team provide guidance when planning activities for exploration, practice and mastery of skills at each child's developmental level
§ Positive guidance offers children information they need to know in order to make and be a friend, work with others to complete a project and understand how to live in the world around them
Our goal is to value and recognize the individual uniqueness and diversity each person brings to the center. Staff harmony is important to providing successful child care.
