Curriculum: Preschool

We use Creative Curriculum and High Scope as a basis for many aspects of our preschool curriculum.

LITERACY

We read to children daily  from books which are at least 2 years ahead of  their reading ability in order to increase understanding of vocabulary and elements of a story.  We use a multi-sensory approach to teaching phonics and sight words. 

MATH & SCIENCE

Opportunities to seek solutions to concrete problems are provided to help students develop concepts and skills in mathematical and scientific thinking.  Children measure sand, water and cooking ingredients; observe and record changes in the environment and climate

CREATIVE ARTS

Children have opportunities to use the arts to symbolize their experiences, ideas, and emotions in verbal and non-verbal ways.  We also provide opportunities to participate in group music experiences and to listen to various types of music.

SOCIAL STUDIES & GEOGRAPHY

Each child’s home culture and language are brought into the classroom through family involvement, special celebrations, and photos.  Monthly field trips or visits from guest speakers and family members offer opportunities for children to experience the larger community and individuals from a variety of backgrounds. 

PHYSICAL EDUCATION

Our PE Program includes many opportunities to participate in cooperative games and to practice running, jumping, climbing, throwing, catching,  and balancing, etc.

TECHNOLOGY

We teach children how to use the mouse and keyboard to use various programs on the computer for practice and review and creative thinking and problem solving.
