    Creating a World of Play: What Children Are Learning

    3 prek students

    Our preschool program provides opportunities for each child to grow emotionally, physically, intellectually, and socially. Each day children will engage in a variety of learning activities. Intentionally organized learning experiences are  planned to build self-esteem, challenge children's thinking and reasoning skills, encourage healthy relationships with peers and staff, and explore various curriculum topics. Children will spend time in self-directed learning centers that include blocks, dramatic play, math and manipulatives, art, discovery, computers, sand and water table (sensory), and literacy centers.
