Our Preschool Program

Engaging children intellectually, physically, emotionally and socially

Our preschool classrooms focus on children’s newly emerging skills and advanced use of language, math, and scientific thought. Multi-disciplinary learning centers encourage individual skills and emerging interests in academics, creative expression, and outdoor learning.

Our curriculum stimulates each child’s innate curiosity and exploratory nature to prepare children for lifelong learning. Children move to elementary school socially prepared, excited to learn, and well versed in the language, math, and science skills they’ll need to succeed. .

Learning at Home

Progressive Story Writing

You Will Need:

Blank book or notebook, Sturdy mailing envelope, markers, pens, etc.

Directions:

Your child starts a story and illustrates a few pages. Mail the book to a family member or friend that doesn’t live with you (great for grandparents!). This person continues the story and sends the book back to the child. This continues as long as there are pages!

Tip:

Make your child part of the whole process. She can pick out the blank book, plan what the story will be about, illustrate it (glue a picture in the book or draw directly in the book?) and decide who they want to send it to. When the book is full, put pictures of the authors and illustrators in the back with the date of publication. Children who cannot write can dictate the story to you.
