Preschool Program

33 months to 5 years old

Curriculum

For preschool age students we compliment the Creative Curriculum with The Early Childhood Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM) curriculum. This curriculum is intended to engage children in experiences that foster the development of 21st century skills of critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and creativity. Through developmentally appropriate, hands-on activities, children develop these skills while simultaneously building the academic knowledge needed to be successful in kindergarten.

In our classrooms you will see

  • Opportunities for child-initiated, teacher-facilitated, hands-on active experiences in all Curriculum areas.
  • Application of thinking skills, such as problem-solving, deciding, planning, preparing, performing and evaluating.
  • An environment that fosters respect for all persons and to work as a community.
Each classroom is designed and equipped with age appropriate furniture and materials. Both toddler and preschool classrooms are composed of various learning centers including blocks, housekeeping, library, manipulative, science and art.  Through play, children will be able to develop their social, emotional, cognitive, small and large motor skills.
 
The program is designed to meet the standards and requirement of: Minnesota Early Learning Standards, the program will be working on getting accredited by Parent Aware, National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). All instruction in the classrooms will be in Spanish, and 20 minutes in English. The child care program is available for staff and families to review upon request. THE STEAM CURRICULUM will be reviewed by the director weekly.
