When my daughter would go along to drop of her cousin, she fell in love with the thought of going to school even though she was only 1.5-2 years old at the time! Mrs. Bartol reached out to us and wanted to know if we’d like to enroll my daughter a little early because she could see how eager she was to learn and engage with other children! It was easily one of the best decisions we’ve made for her. Even though she joined the classroom a few months after the other children, she adjusted quickly and they made her feel right at home! Mrs. Bartol and Mrs. Haskins became two of the most important people to my daughter and always talks about school and her teachers! They offer the opportunity to learn and grow while also being able to be creative and independent! We love it here and look forward to another year!
Our monthly theme-based curriculum allows your child an opportunity to explore in a developmentally appropriate environment. They will experience large and small group situations along with individual assistance while exploring our Learning Centers. Your little one will start to discover, explore, and grow while learning through play!
During each classroom session, your child will participate in Carpet Time, Learning Centers, Free Choice Activities, and a mid-morning Snack Time. Socialization is always encouraged throughout the activities as a highly important part of our preschool classroom experience.
Communication with each child’s grown-up is extremely important to us! A Daily Lesson Plan is posted outside the classroom door for your review. We provide a monthly newsletter that contains information about what the children will be learning the following month! This helps provide consistency and communication both in and outside of the classroom.
