Daily Schedule
We think it is important to show you our daily schedule (so we posted it below), however, we think it is even more important to show you what we do!



Show & Tell is a time to get up and feel comfortable talking to your friends, so we do this daily.



We cook a different recipe every week!



Art comes from an individual child's perspective and it should look that way.





Education is obtained through many outlets and we think the sandbox is one of them, so we go there often :)



Learning should be multisensory at this age, leading up to reading and writing.






Science is amazing, but our children make it awesome! 



We would love to show you more, but you will have to come visit us to see!!

Circle Time 

During our circle time, we incorporate many different elements of the world around the child using techniques that are both attractive and interesting to the children. While some days, it may be show and tell as well as a story, other days may be current events in child society and a story with a lot of group participation. We like to incorporate music into our circle time as well and actively discuss weather using a felt board, days of the week and the date using our calendar and so much more! This time centers around the children and is not left to boring topics that do not interest the child because school is meant to be fun and educational!

 

 Alphabet Time 

 During alphabet time, the children are broken up into small groups at our group tables with a teacher. Each child has either an alphabet book or a hand out to learn how to form those crazy shapes we call letters. Children are not drilled on letters and move through this activity at their own pace. Some children may come in to our preschool knowing how to make letters and others may have never made one before. This is ok because due to our small group size, we have the ability to individually help each child.

 

Free Play 

During Free play times our children are free to use any of the equipment that they please. Some will choose educational games while others may choose an exciting game of house. This is the child’s free period to find new friends and start the socialization process which is just as important as cognitive development at this age.

 

Science Time 

Science can really be a lot of fun for preschoolers because there is just so much to learn. Children who develop a healthy love of science in preschool may just find out it is one of their favorite subjects throughout their school years. We do a lot of hands on projects such as painting the planets for our solar system and talking about just how big our universe really is. We also do reading in our circle time to support things we learned in science like how that beautiful flower grew from that tiny seed!

 

Manipulative Activities in Teams of Two

During our manipulative activities, we are teaching the children to work technically with both their minds and their hands, but most importantly, with each other. We are stressing teamwork through healthy communication with each other. It is typical to find children off doing whatever it is that they would like and sometimes the social aspect of teamwork is missing. That is why we take the time in our day everyday to work as a team. Activities consist of doing puzzles, solving mysteries, mixing foods together and many more team driven activities. Some of our manipulative activities also help the children with their math skills.

 

Crafts

During crafts time, preschoolers will be given age appropriate objects to make creative crafts projects out of. We understand that not all children will want to participate in craft making so we also use this time as art class. Children who do not make crafts will be allowed to color a picture, play with play dough, or even look at a book if they are not interested in art. We do however hope that all aspects of the child will get a chance to blossom in our program and creativity is one of them.

 

Reading Beginnings/ Reading Help

During our reading time we ask that every child take a little quiet time to read a story or just look at the pictures. We understand that although many children will not know how to read on his or her own yet, the opportunity to start learning early is a valuable one. Children will take turns sitting with the teacher to begin recognizing words and putting simple sentences together. For children who are not ready yet for that task, we will identify pictures in the book and then try writing the word if the child is interested, if not we will proceed reading the story to the child with our fingers pointing to each word together.

 

 

 Group Activities 

During group activity time, students will all participate in small groups playing the games that we have available. We will play in small groups rather than one large group so that every child has the proper guidance for playing our learning games. We play great games during this time and switch game stations so that everyone gets a chance to play all of the games. Some of the exciting games we play are Zingo, Candy Land, Chutes and Ladders, Old Maid, Go Fish, Memory, Hi Ho Cherry-o, Alphabet Bingo and many, many more. These types of games help to promote turn taking skills, verbalization, and recognition.
