Half Day (3 Hour) Preschool
The Preschool Enrichment Program is a developmental preschool for 3 & 4 year old children of parents who are able to drop-off & pick-up the children on specified days & times. This program offers strictly "preschool time", where children are given an opportunity to interact socially with children their own age, and to grow in independence & confidence in & outside the classroom.
Our primary goal for the children is to provide a safe, pro-social learning environment that encourages each child's independence by asking questions, finding solutions, developing ideas, exploring, & experimenting. We expose children to a wide variety of experiences through "hands-on" enrichment activities. We want children to have both a sense of confidence & competence. During this time of growth, we hope to guide each child's changing interests and abilities through social relationships with other children, understanding, caring teachers, & appropriate play materials.
Our highly trained & qualified staff incorporate preschool themes, concepts & activities into the classroom's daily schedule in order to provide each child with social, emotional, physical, cognitive & language development. These activities include science exploration, creative art projects, language & literacy activities, math skill building, music & movement activities, pretend play, & large/fine motor skill activities. Learning occurs both formally & informally. The classroom's daily schedule is structured with a variety of activities & events, however, it is flexible in order to incorporate unplanned learning opportunities that may arise.
