Explorers

they love to explore, and we help them learn while doing it! we'll have them ready for school before you know it!

For our Little Explorers, children 4 to 5 years old, we utilize the Houghton Mifflin Pre K Curriculum. In addition to basic care and nurturing, our curriculum provides learning activities and experiences in Literacy, Math, Social Studies, Science, Social/Emotional Development, Physical Development; Fine Arts; Health & Safety, and Media & Technology.

The Little Explorers curriculum includes the following themes: Welcome to School!; My Family, My Community; My Five Senses; Seasons All Around; Animals Everywhere; Construction Zone; In the City, In the Country; Let’s Move!; Growing & Changing; Ready for Kindergarten.

Our teachers continuously nurture and support your child’s growth. Parents are also a vital part of this process. In order to integrate some of the school activities with home activities, we send home a monthly curriculum guideline. We highly encourage parents to work at home on topics discussed at school.

 

Here is this months Pre K Child Development Plan, an overview of activities, enrichments and experiences.  We encourage families to use these plans at home to further support your child's development.  Feel free to ask your child's teacher for a copy of any songs or possibilities you see, were happy to help.
