The preschool room uses a High/Scope curriculum to teach new concepts. This curriculum uses daily, developmental experiences that the children will eventually master. The activites are deisgned to be hands-on, with the teacher acting as a guide to the learning. The purpose of each activity is the process, not the end product.
Each week we aim to teach an activity in each of the following subject areas: math, science, literacy, and art. These are done through simple activities so that the children gradually master them.
Many of these experiences are just that, experiences. Therefore, many activities do not go home with the children. To keep parents informed of what their child has done throughout the week a newsletter is sent home telling what the children accomplished throughout the week.
