Our preschool program provides a nurturing environment that encourages learning through experimentation and exploration within a structured curriculum.
Fine Motor Skills
Activities like painting build hand eye coordination skills that help children develop their fine motor muscles at this pre-school stage. These visual motor integration activities will help your child turn pages in a book, open and closing twistable lids, putting on shoes and other tasks that support independence and self care.
Gross Motor Skills
For preschoolers, development of gross motor skills is an important part of healthy development. Playground activities such as kicking a stationary ball, riding a tricycle and exploration of music with motion helps develop necessary muscles groups that enable graduation into more complex activities like jumping over hurdles and throwing ball to hit a target.
Providing an opportunity to practice self-care skills is a fantastic way to help children at this age feel capable and increase self-esteem. Through practice of removing plate from table and proper hygiene activities like independently drinking from an open cup and using napkin creates a great sense of autonomy, a drive to learn and grow.
Social Development Skills
At age three, children are gaining the ability to see their world outside themselves and now include small groups of people (parents, siblings, classmates). Though games and activities that foster collaboration like playing catch or tag children strengthen social skills.
Listening skills are crucial to language development therefore children of this age benefit from the practice of activities that practice hearing and understanding subject matter. Activities that require following 3-4 part directions, longer stories with sequential story lines and interactive circle time can help enhance these skills.
Early readiness reading skills for pre-school age children are invaluable in the learning process and bring about many benefits in academics, communication and critical thinking skills. Activities that enhance story comprehension, like identification and recognition of words or signs within the story and the ability to add or elaborate on story line are key indicators of reading readiness for this age group.
Three year olds learn key logic and reasoning skills essential to math skills from creative and collaborate play, therefore activities like manipulatives, using shapes in combination or relation to one another help establish a strong foundation for mathematical development at this stage.
Music Skills & Concepts
Preschoolers have much to gain from early introduction into musical education. Exposure to harmonic sounds, rhythms and sequential patterns help brain development and cognition, which are building blocks to learning more advanced concepts.
