A day in the life of Malmo Pre-kindergarten

The preschool day allows for a period of free play time, where children choose their own activities from among the many learning centers designed to stimulate and challenge each child according to their individual needs and stages of development. During free play, the teacher, teacher’s assistant and duty parent play with the children and give individualized instruction and encouragement.

After free play, children are guided into a structured time of play. This includes circle time, music time and/or gym time, followed by a snack and story time. The children come to know and enjoy their preschool routine.

For large motor skills, the classes use both the school gymnasium and the outdoor park (weather permitting) on a daily basis.

Each month a new theme is introduced. Special activities linked to the current theme are planned daily to further stimulate and challenge the children. This includes guest speakers and field trips. Children are exposed to art media, music, science, books, food, people and community experience to broaden and expand their knowledge.

Our teacher constantly assesses the program, the environment, and each child in order to adapt and improve the program if necessary.

Some of our centers include:

  • water table
  • sand table
  • painting
  • art & crafts
  • block building
  • library & story corner
  • play house
  • puzzles & games

Our Learning Philosophy

Malmo Pre-Kindergarten promotes a learning through play environment. We believe that play enhances the growth and development of the whole child: physically, socially, emotionally and intellectually. It is through play that children learn to make sense of their world.

Malmo Pre-Kindergarten is an inclusive learning environment.  Ask us about the agencies we partner with and what accommodations can be made for your child.

Malmo Pre-Kindergarten
vs Malmo Preschool

We are frequently asked about the name of our school. Our official name is Malmo Pre-Kindergarten but we often call ourselves Malmo Preschool. So, is there a difference?

There are many different terms for the grouping of three to five-year-olds: pre-kindergarten, preschool, playschool and nursery school. All these terms mean the same thing. For the most part, we refer to our school as the Malmo Preschool.
