Preschool begins at 9:30 am and includes sessions of free-play, art, phonics, music, creative movement, letter recognition, writing skills and sharing time. The children, of course, look forward to their juice and snack break. Classes end at 11:30 am.
At the end of the academic year, every pre-kindergarten child is evaluated and written comments are provided to each parent.
Miss Margene, Miss Tiffany and Miss Susan make up our team of experienced, friendly, preschool teachers. Each of these teachers bring different strengths and personality to our classroom making our preschool a healthy, happy learning environment for young children.
Creative Classroom is closed for all traditional public school breaks and holidays.
September thru December Preschool focuses on:
- Number Recognition
- Counting and Sequencing
- Sets and Patterning
- Seasons and Holiday Fun
January thru May our main focus is on our Reading Readiness and Phonics Programs. We alternate programs from Alphabet Pals to The Letter People each year. This enables our two year program to be complete, challenging, and above all---instills the love for reading and learning through creativity and fun.
At Pre-School within these programs, we also learn about:
- Self Esteem
- Creative Art
- Creative Movement
- Health & Fitness
- Social Awareness
- Community Helpers & Heroes
- Science---How & Why things work
- Animals---Zoo, Farm, Ocean, Rain Forest, Dinosaurs
- Days of the Week---Months of the Year
- Our Country
- Different Cultures
- Nursery Rhymes
We want each child who enters any program at Miss Margene’s to become a well-rounded human being, to learn to be able to make good choices, to be kind, independent and yet follow rules that make them feel confident and successful. Most of all, we want each child to feel important and loved giving them a safe environment to grow and succeed at whatever they may try at Miss Margene’s.
