Two-Day Preschool Program Overview
Do you want your three year old to learn social skills, an introduction to cognitive skills, and play in a fun and loving environment? The two day program is the perfect fit for your child.
A predictable daily schedule is important for children to feel safe and allows them to anticipate upcoming events. We will do our best to follow our daily schedule; however, there will be times we'll require flexibility to best serve the children's needs.
8:30 - Children Arrive - Hang up coats and backpacks.
8:30 - Free Exploration - This offers children time to explore our classroom. We will provide centers such as: dress up, housekeeping, construction zone, sensory, writing, and art studio. This allows children time to socialize and problem solve.
9:00 - Circle Time - During this time we will talk about the calendar (days of the week, months, date and year). We will graph the weather and discuss the graph using math terms such as: most, least, and equal. We will count and identify numbers, sing songs, and enjoy movement activities. We will read a letter from our classroom mascot and identify letters and sight words.
9:30 - Bathroom & hand washing.
9:40 - Snack time - We provide a healthy family-style snack. The children will be given opportunities to set the table, pour drinks, use plastic knives safely, serve themselves with tongs, take turns, and practice table manners.
10:00 - Thematic Projects-These projects will focus on following directions, fine motor skills, creativity, literacy and math concepts.
10:40 - Getting Dressed for Recess - This allows the children to practice putting on their coats, snow pants, boots, as well as zipping and buttoning.
