Our goals at the Kids Place Preschool are to provide children with a nurturing, fun, calm, creative and educational environment. There are two classes one Monday Wednesday Friday for 4 year old's and Tuesday Thursday for our 3 year old's. Our goals for each class are age appropriate and are achieved through play based learning.
Each morning we will conduct a morning meeting where we gather in front of the calendar, sing a good morning song, talk about the weather, see who is in school through name recognition and counting. As a class we discuss what activities will be doing that day in school.
Each week we will have a theme. Projects and books around the theme will be used to help make connections.
The classes will start a letter of the week after the first couple months of school.
Projects will be done in small groups of 2-3 to ensure the teacher can focus on each child’s needs, skills will be adjusted according to skill level and age, for example, younger learners might just use scissors to practice cutting paper, while older learners might cut out a circle.
All enjoy our outdoor space as much as possible while the weather is nice, there are many projects and learning opportunities that can happen outside.
We often use the site GoNoodle to keep the kids moving, there are many great dances, workouts and songs to keep us busy. We also enjoy using Cosmic Kids yoga to unwind and relax.
