Highly trained and certified teachers introduce preschoolers to cognitive skills, such as sequencing and matching; social skills, such as recognizing similarities and embracing diversity; and language arts skills, such as storytelling and writing.
Our learning program promotes self-confidence by encouraging children to progress at their own paces according to their individual needs and abilities. Learning centers for math, science, dramatic play, music, and creative art provide opportunities for both shared and independent learning experiences. Fitness activities through gymnastics, ballet, tap, tumbling, and hippity hop are a critical part of the preschooler's daily schedule.
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT
- HAVING FUN WHILE LEARNING
Children experience the deepest, most genuine learning when they are having fun. Highly trained teachers foster the cognitive and social development of each child by lovingly guiding the class through play-based activities.
- PHYSICAL FITNESS THROUGH DANCE
A structured part of each day is to learn and having fun through dance and tumbling. With 1 in 6 Children now suffering from childhood obesity in the United States, building healthy habbits early is important for healthy life skills.
- FOCUSED ATTENTION ON SOCIAL SKILLS AND MORALS LIKE YOURS
Research shows that a positive experience with a first teacher helps children gain confidence and form productive relationships with future teachers and adults. The emotional skills are just as important as the scholastic ones.
- How to behave in a school setting - taking turns, lining up, sitting in a circle.
- How to properly ask for help - interacting with other adults when a shoe is untied, or a bathroom need arises, or when they have something important to say.
- How to investigate and explore - Children are free to focus on activities that interest them — when they focus, they are trying to master a skill or concept. Feeding and nurturing a child’s natural curiosity will foster a lifetime love of learning.
- How to make friends - The chance to forge friendships on their own and settle differences without the help of a parent or caregiver. “Preschoolers learn how to approach other children and be comfortable around them,” says Margaret L. Bauman, author of Your Successful Preschooler: Ten Skills Children Need to Become Confident and Socially Engaged (Jossey-Bass; 2011).
- How to be independent and follow the narrow path (Matt 7:13).
