Three’sA preschoolers’ world opens up in new ways. Preschoolers are eager to learn. They are improving coordination, beginning to combine ideas and learning more complex games, all while learning about themselves and each other. This class participates in Chapel weekly and learns and discusses daily Bible stories. Children explore basic science concepts using simple materials and experiments. They predict outcomes, discuss results and explore concepts, such as cause and effect, using materials including water, sand and seeds. Our teachers also provide plenty of individual attention to support your child’s unique needs.
Kid’s Day Out provides an environment where children are encouraged to explore and challenged to learn, while making friends and developing self-confidence. They strengthen their cognitive skills with fun memory games where they match objects that share similar characteristics. We use monthly themes, weekly topics and daily activities to keep the curriculum focused and fun. We teach reading readiness through alphabet letterforms and sounds, music, rhymes and stories. They also practice coordination skills needed for writing, drawing, cutting and other activities.
Art, music, dramatic play and social interaction help each preschooler explore creativity and build self-esteem. Important concepts such as proportion, balance, size, shape and patterns come to life with classic wooden building blocks. Gathering together for stories, songs, music, dance and other learning activities fosters listening, creativity and social development. Learning continues outdoors with nature study and physical development (climbing, sliding and running.) As in all classes, you will enjoy regular communication with teachers so that you are informed about your child’s day.
