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. .

Family Band Making Tambourines

You Will Need:


Paper plates, beans, rice, small pebbles, paint, and stapler

Directions:

Have your child paint or decorate the bottom (underside) of two plates. Face the plates together and help your child staple around the perimeter. After the plates are mostly attached to each other, he can fill them with beans, rice, or small pebbles to make tambourines. Finish stapling them together so that the beans or rice do not spill out. You and your child can take turns shaking and tapping out rhythms.

Tip:

Notice and comment on the difference in sounds between rice, beans or perhaps small pebbles. Watch for choking hazards at all times when using any small items. Each family member can make a different instrument and all together, you can create a band and/or have a parade.
