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. .

Placemats

You Will Need:

11 x 14 paper, felt tip pens or paint, photographs optional

Directions:

Children draw, paint or make a collage on the paper. They might want to add photographs. Write each family members' name on his/her placemat. Take the creations to be laminated at a local office store or cover with clear contact paper and use them as placemats.

Tip:

Have each family member make a placemat. Make a few extras for guests. If you write sentiments that a child dictates, the placemats are wonderful gifts. Footprints work well for babies.
