Preschool & Pre-kindergarten Program
A new world of learning begins in our preschool programs. This is the beginning of a new learning adventure that will develop language, social, emotional, thinking and learning skills of young learners. They begin to problem solve and become critical thinkers. The program provides an academic and literacy rich foundation that will prepare them for kindergarten and beyond. Talking responsively to children, reading daily and offering regular opportunities to practice writing are key to successful learners.
Our curriculum is based on the Massachusetts Department of Education Guidelines for Preschool Learning and the Early Childhood Program Standards.
Calendar and newsletters are sent home monthly. Children will be challenged in all areas of the curriculum including science, math, writing, literature and social studies. Children also enjoy weekly Music and Movement lessons taught by a certified teacher.
The younger preschoolers learn by a literature based curriculum. Engaging preschoolers in stories, songs and puppet props will encourage language and reading readiness skills. Developing friendships, problem solving and sharing will build confidence as our younger learners prepare to move on to our pre-kindergarten program.
Our pre-kindergarten students learn by a theme based - academically rich curriculum. Exposure to letter and phonological awareness, name writing, expanding vocabulary and reading skills are explored. Children also enjoy weekly Spanish lessons taught by a certified teacher.
Children also participate in outdoor and gross motor play daily.
