A weekly thematic unit in introduced and children are giving more opportunities to develop their self help skills, pro social skills and learn what it is like to be an integral part of a group. Activities are developmentally appropriate and children progress at their own pace. We realize that each child is an individual and has his or her own interests. Children in this program work on developing their fine motor skills (cutting/forming letters/number recognition) and cognitive skills in order for them to become exposed to early literacy and early writing skills. Parents are always welcome to assist in the classroom (see Curriculum Goals for a sampling of our themes). Teaching respect and manners is paramount to our program.

    Please select your 1st, 2nd and 3rd class choice for your child.
