Preschool teachers will use the WEE Learn curriculum to plan specific activities that promote school readiness. The curriculum will be based on helping children to attain positive school readiness outcomes. Other approved curriculum resource books will be used to supplement the curriculum.
Infant/Toddler teachers will use Foundations for Success and a variety of Infant-Toddler curriculum resource books to plan appropriate activities for children.
The students are introduced to a balanced program of interaction with friends in both teacher-directed and child-directed experiences. The daily schedule includes free choice of time spent in the learning centers, group time and music, story telling and outside play.
The children are free to make choices as long as they stay within the limits of consideration for others and for property. Children are treasured for their uniqueness and individuality and are encouraged in self-expression. Our program prepares students to utilize their intellectual and God-given abilities for future learning tasks.
Our program is based upon the belief that play is the best way for children to learn. Television viewing and videos will not be used in our program unless it is a part of the unit of study.
The environment is planned to stimulate imagination, creativity, socialization and discovery and love of learning.
Children are placed in the appropriate classroom according to their age on September 1st. They will remain in the same classroom for the entire school year.
We strive for our students to visit the school’s media center every two weeks. The preschool children will have the opportunity to check out books and return them within two weeks. In order for a child to take a book home, the parent must sign a permission slip. During the visit, story time will be presented to the students in a fun way to help children enjoy reading.
Our Preschool classes will be involved with learning manners in a fun and interactive way. The curriculum used is “Oops, Your Manners are Showing”
