Preschoolers (3yrs - 5yrs)

Our Preschoolers have many opportunities to explore learning centers and engage in authentic writing experiences. Your child will be introduced to literacy concepts and expand upon mathematical thinking and scientific inquiry through hands-on materials and exploration. Children will begin to practice social-emotional skills and independently navigate their classroom community.

This age is all about expression, when kids really start to form their own ideas about what they want to play and how they want to create. Every day in our preschool classroom, your child will explore science experiments, create artwork, and play pretend—all the skills needed for their big next step.

Development Goals

Language and Literacy

Children build vocabulary through literacy-based discussions, experiment with different letter sounds, and explore characters and story plots.

Mathematical Thinking

Children explore number concepts and practice comparing, classifying, and interpreting simple graphs. Children begin using number lines.

Social-Emotional Learning 

Children learn to follow directions, take turns, and develop friendships. Children begin to engage in social interactions and regulate emotions with support.

Creative Expression

Children are introduced to art, artists, music, and musicians. Children engage in open-ended experiences inspiring self-expression and creative thinking.

Scientific Exploration

Students begin to perform experiments, make predictions, test solutions, and begin to understand that natural changes occur.

Young Citizens of the World 

Children demonstrate acceptance of people who are similar and different from themselves and understand that all families have unique characteristics.

Wellness 

Preschool students complete complex fine motor tasks and improve balance through complex body movement exercises.
