Preschoolers are like little sponges: they soak up knowledge. This is a very important age to explore social, physical, verbal, cognitive and physical skills. Our teacher encourage your children to engage in letter recognition, counting straws and working to assemble puzzles.
At this age, the teachers work with the children on the following concepts:
Social Development - we believe it is important to encourage working in groups and learning the importance of sharing and cooperation through activities.
Language Development - story time, recognizing and forming letters, speech development.
Motor Skill Development - outdoor/indoor games, dancing, movement, building.
Development in Arts - arts and crafts, storytelling and dramatic play
