Preschool Program Offerings
Dream. Challenge. Succeed.
Like the Full Day classes, part-day Preschool groups provide learning through exploration and self-reflection. In every class, our teachers emphasize the strategies and processes involved in learning while creating a fun environment that prepares our students to live thoughtful, creative, and fulfilling lives in a rapidly changing society. The curriculum is based on The Creative Curriculum and the PA Early Learning Standards.
Morning classes are from 9:00-11:30
The afternoon class is from 12:30-3:00
Please see our current course offerings below.
5 Day Pre-K Group
The class is limited to 20 children.
This class meets for five half-day sessions each week and is offered to children who are ready for more than three days of class but are not ready for kindergarten. The class features small group and individual learning experiences which promote appropriate cognitive and social growth.
3 Day Groups
These classes are limited to 20 children.
Three and four year old children are grouped by age and attend three half-day sessions each week. Classes are scheduled for two and a half hours each and occur in both the morning and afternoon. During the early months of the school year, teachers spend time helping children learn to play cooperatively and encouraging creative play. Throughout the year, teachers lead small groups and individuals in cognitive learning experiences which are developmentally appropriate for the group. Time is spent in art activities, music, creative drama, and stories.
Groups are limited to 12 children plus one parent for each child.
TheToddler class provides the first experience in group play for two-year-olds and helps families encourage children to be independent. For the first few months an adult must attend with each toddler. Grown-ups first participate in activities with their child and gradually, over a period of several weeks, separate from the child by first going to another room for 20 to 30 minutes. Finally, adults may leave the building if they so desire.
While still in the building, adults spend a portion of their time talking together about questions common to the parenting experience. The Toddler group meets twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays for a two-hour session.
