Challenging program that encourages students to immerse into a read aloud or story and develop reading, pre-reading, and comprehension skills to ensure success in the following years. Writing begins in Kindergarten and the most important thing to remember is that during the preschool years it is exciting and fun! Our goal is to help students understand how writing works, how it connects in meaningful ways to reading, and how it communicates information, through words, symbols, and technology.
New opportunities are enhanced to discover and experiment new things through a variety of learning activities carried out and planned for the learning centers. Fine motor skills are developed by using their hands to explore, play, stack blocks, thread beads, play with puzzles, scribble with crayons and make shapes with play dough. This type of play builds up skills needed for more complex activities such as writing, cutting, using a computer, tying laces, or playing a musical instrument.
Fun and interesting thematic units develop great listening, use of imagination, communication and strong vocabulary skills. Fostering a great environment in the classroom gives students the opportunity to explore, discover and extend their prior knowledge.
