In preschool, children learn to strengthen their social and emotional development. Children learn how to compromise, be respectful and problem solve. Preschool provides an environment for children to explore, gain a sense of self, play with peers and build self-confidence. Children learn they can accomplish tasks and make decisions without the help of their parents.
Behavior management is a major part of preschool learning. Children learn how to be students. They learn patience, how to raise their hands and take turns. Children also learn how to share the teacher's attention. Children also learn about routine, following directions and waiting.
In pre-school pre-math and pre-literacy skills are introduced. Children are taught numbers and letters, but it is taught in a way that is appealing to children at that age. Children sing an alphabet song while following along in a picture book or learn rhymes and chants, which help them to notice the distinct sounds within words. Teachers read stories to children to encourage their listening, comprehension, and expressive language skills. Matching games, sorting games and counting games build children’s understanding of numbers, and sequences. Putting puzzles together encourages children to notice patterns and to work on problem-solving skills.
This is a developmentally based program where, in a classroom atmosphere, children learn the joys of socialization, listening, and language development. Hands-on activities introduce children to basic concepts.
We would love to discuss what program would be best for your child!
