Preschool Programming (3-Year Olds)

"I go to sleep thinking about my children being spoiled and I wake up thinking about it."

~ Adam Sandler

Our commitment to quality care enhances our Preschool Program through our hands-on, theme based curriculum, which allows children to make good choices and be successful.  At each stage of preschool development careful consideration is given to classroom arrangement and selection of developmentally appropriate toys and equipment to enhance the development of the children. The preschool classroom revolves around 8 interest areas: creative arts, blocks, dramatic play, book corner, manipulatives, math, science and sensory.  Insterest areas are enriched with engaging activities corresponding with the theme. Children interact with a variety of materials to discover and learn.  It is through this child-directed play and fun that preschoolers are actually learning concepts such as counting, letter recognition, sounds, shapes, colors sequencing and listening skills in prepartion for kindergarten.

Arts for Kids has a written program of activities planned according to the developmental level of each group of children and intended to expose children to a variety of cultures.  The program will give each child experiences that will encourage the following:

 

Self esteem and positive self-images

Social interacation

Self-expression and communication skills

Creative expression

Large and small muscle development

Intelluctual growth

Hello Families!
It’s hard to believe April is already here! Hopefully the snow is behind us and we can take our snow stuff home and start bringing in lighter jackets and rain boots!
The first week in April is Week of the Young Child and we have some fun dress up days coming up! This month our themes will be:
Super Heroes, Easter, Community Helpers and Transportation.
We are working on our days of the week and even have a color association chart to help us!
We are also working on using our words with our friends!
Hope everyone has a wonderful April!
Ms. Steph

Hello Families!
We had so much fun in the month of March learning about Dr. Suess, Farm Animals, Birds and Rain/Clouds. We started the month learning about Dr. Suess and doing some fun/silly things like drinking green milk! We also read many Dr. Suess books. We loved doing crafts for our themes and we made a cool treat for St. Patrick’s Day! We loved having Art with Ms. Kayla, we were so excited to have her back! We also loved Sign Language and Music with Mrs. K and Science with Ms. Rachael. We had a visit from the Roving Reader from the library and she read us books about Oceans and Beaches.
This month we will learn about Spring, Easter, Earth Week and Rainbows. We have a couple theme-planned treats we are going to make. Lots of hands-on activities planned inside and outside as well!
As always, if you ever have any questions or concerns feel free to reach out via HiMama:)
