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.

Learning at Home

Job Responsibilities

You Will Need:

Photos of different chores or a camera

Directions:

Take pictures of chores or jobs you want your child to accomplish around the house and make a chart for her to follow. Start with something like “Throw away food when you’re done with dinner” – have your child take or draw a picture of dinner and a picture of the trash can. Then, make a chart with your child. Write a sentence and attach pictures for each job. In this case, the sentence might be “When you are done with _______ (photo of dinner), then __________ (photo of trash can).” Repeat with additional jobs.

Tip:

This ongoing activity will give children a sense of responsibility and accomplishment. You can also reward your child when she completes tasks.
