There are but two lasting gifts we can give our children. One is roots, the other
is wings .
Children two years nine months through kindergarten enter
our preschool groups. Each preschool class, which is no
larger than 19, is mixed in age. It is our belief that
children learn greatly through their interactions with
other children. Younger children will have the role models
of older children while older children will benefit from
positive feelings of having mastered and being the teacher
at certain skills. The preschool group will be consistent
in staff and children.
Within a scheduled routine, children will have the opportunity
to participate in smaller group structured activities with
peers at their developmental level. Under the supervision
and guidance of our teachers, children will interact in
a classroom setting which has been designed to encourage
exploration, social interaction and learning. Within these
groups, children will participate in language rich, multi-sensory
child centered activities. Inviting environmental play
areas will include, listening centers, library, art, dramatic
play, big blocks, puzzles and hands on toys, gross motor
play as well as regularly introduced themes.
