Spring Background, Lilac Flowers

 

Spring is in full bloom, and the Primary children have been busy bees! Outside, gross motor skills are developing, throwing, and catching balls, building, and running through obstacle courses, and lots of running, climbing, and jumping.

 

Curriculum

Our preschool program includes learning experiences in the areas of language and literature, social relationships, mathematics and science, and the creative arts (music, art and movement). Our spacious, grassy play area encourages the children to run and play games with their friends. Alphabet knowledge, pre-writing skills, building vocabulary, and learning habits for writing letters and numbers are the necessary readiness skills that will help children build a strong foundation for kindergarten. We are bridging the gap between our preschool and the public schools by using the same curriculum.
