We believe that “learning through play” enhances the growth and development of the whole child: physically, socially, emotionally, intellectually and creatively.
Opportunities for indoor play with various recreational equipment in the school gymnasium offer the children many activities that promote large muscle development and body co-ordination. Weather-permitting, the preschool also utilizes the outdoor park and playground
Small muscles and finer co- ordination are developed through the use of small blocks, puzzles, crayons, paints, clay, sand, and musical instruments. Children are taught body care methods and needs through special theme subjects, activities, resource visitors, etc.
Children are offered a consistent routine and encouragement in an atmosphere of caring, concerned adults who are sensitive to the feelings of children.
A preschool of similar ages makes companionship possible. Under the guidance of the teacher, the school provides many experiences in playing with and alongside peers, sharing, waiting one’s turn, and managing relationships and conflicts.
Various learning centers that change weekly, music/singing time, baking/cooking opportunities, field trips and visits from special guests all stimulate curiosity and contribute to the growth of ideas.
Children explore their artistic natures through daily craft activities, a painting center and a play dough table. Our playhouse changes with each theme to allow the children a variety of imaginative play.
