The Preschool offers a developmentally appropriate curriculum which emphasizes:
Teachers plan the curriculum relating to subjects that are interesting to young children. Some ideas emerge from the children themselves, parents’ ideas, and our neighborhood. We plan many books, songs, cooking projects, flannel stories and creative art projects relating to that theme. Parents are also welcome to join in with projects and circle times.
Some of our themes might be:
BUGS, BUTTERFLIES & GARDEN CREATURES
