Our Preschool Program

Engaging children intellectually, physically, emotionally and socially

Our preschool classrooms focus on children’s newly emerging skills and advanced use of language, math, and scientific thought. Multi-disciplinary learning centers encourage individual skills and emerging interests in academics and creative expression.

Our curriculum stimulates each child’s innate curiosity and exploratory nature to prepare children for lifelong learning.

Treasure Hunt

You Will Need:

Brown paper, markers, “treasure” (favorite snack, small toy, old jewelry)

Directions:

First, without your child watching, hide the treasure around the house. Draw pictures of the places you want him to look. Leave picture clues that direct him to the next location -- send him outside, to the mailbox, into the basement, and all around the house. If your child can read or decode sounds, add the name of the location or a short written clue and help him sound it out. You can also use pictures from magazines as your clues instead of drawing. Glue the pictures to index cards or crinkled brown paper. To make the paper look like an authentic treasure map, soak it in tea or burn the edges of brown paper.

Tip:

This is a fun way to do afternoon snack. You can hide the clues while your child is napping, and lead him to his snack. Keep the clues; you will want to do this many times.
