4 Year-old Pre-K All-Day Program
"If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales.
If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales."
~ Albert Einstein
Our goal in our Pre-K classroom is to provide our students with an opportunity to learn while balancing both an organized enviornment and learning through play. We base our program on the Creative Curriculum with a focus on the Everyday Math Program and Handwriting without Tears. We feel that it is important to teach our students skills through hands on activity and movement.
Throughout the year the students are asked to do a few family projects which involve an activity that a parent and child complete as a team - most often some sort of art project. We believe that this is a great time to talk to your child about school and see his/her progress in learning. This is a wonderful way to get family involved in what is going on in the classroom.
As new themes arise each week we change our areas of the classroom to help keep our students' interest. It is always exciting seeing the students' reactions to our new items in the book area, sensory table, dramatic play, block area and discovery table. We also dedicate a bulletin board to a "Star Student" every other week to display pictures, favorites, and news about a friend in our class. The children always look forward to seeing who the next Star Student is.
Our Pre-K program is devoted to helping children grow and prepare for Kindergarten in a positive environment. We do our best to accomodate our teaching to service the needs of each child in our class. Ultimately, our goal is to guide our students day-by-day and facilitate their learning as they have only just begun their jouney in education.

September 2022 News!
4s (Ms. Liz)
All about me is what we will be talking about the first 2 weeks of September.
We will welcome our new friends to our class. We will make family trees and body traces, and other fun art projects about me.
The leaves are changing colors and we will talk about the changing weather in fall. We will have fun tasting different kinds of apples too.
Fall also is a time when we need a light jacket by our cubby for early morning outside time.
We will end the month with community helpers.
Happy fall to all! We are excited about our new year together.
Ms. Liz and her friends.
I am Jocelyne and am 24 years old. I have a 7 month old baby and graduated from Fox Valley Technical College with an associates degree in Early Childhood Education. I am also attending UW-Oshkosh in the Human Services program.
I previously worked one on one with children with autism for three and a half years. I implemented treatment plans that were focused on behavioral therapy. I am very excited to be here. My plan is to be creative and to explore their interests. We will be learning about many different themes but we will also take the opportunity to learn about their curiosities as well. I am excited for our upcoming year!
