The Preschool Class focuses on Imagination. This word says it all! In all the activities; be it art, science, children's literature, movement, dramatic play, or blocks, the use of imagination will be dominant. We will encourage the children to explore and stretch their natural imagination and curiosity. We will help the children develop into eager learners by learning to recognize letters and numbers, shapes, sizes, colors and advanced topics including phonics. We concentrate on listening skills, following directions and pre-reading activities using visual and auditory skills. We do arts and crafts to develop fine motor skills and help the children develop the social skills of sharing, helping, listening, recognizing and practicing writing their own name. Computers are used with regular class programs utilizing software designed for preschool children to prepare them for the Kindergarten year ahead.
