The Preschool Program is specifically designed for 3, 4 and 5 year olds who have just transitioned from a prior classroom. While our preschool rooms combine ages, out teachers design each activity to the ages appropriate in their classroom. The teachers create Learning Experience Plans with a bit more structure and longer blocks of time for each activity. There are music & movement classes built directly into the daily classroom schedule. Circle time will increased as your child is able to focus longer as well as more comfortably participate in group conversations. Preschool classrooms have an even wider variety of classroom learning centers where children may choose to participate in educational activities independently or with a small group of friends.
SmartEarly’s school readiness curriculum is applied in all preschool classrooms. Children are encouraged to express themselves through art projects and creative illustrations. Visual letter and number recognition, as well as phonemic awareness, will begin to develop. In a community of learners, children are encouraged to communicate and express ideas in many ways. This develops a desire to read, write and listen. Children shall experience and demonstrate the ability to happily exist in a group setting which is important in kindergarten environments.
