ISLAND PREP PRESCHOOL
The preschool classroom, ages 2 -3 years, provides a fun and creative environment for active, hands-on learning with greater emphasis on the concepts of letters, numbers, shapes and colors.
Small group learning centers such as arts and crafts, sensory exploration and science experiments provide opportunities for the children and teachers to discover new topics together each week. Our daily circle time promotes strong oral language skills and exposure to early literacy through songs, finger play poems and books. Throughout the day, during open-ended activities, dramatic play and outside playground time, children have opportunities to make choices and practice cooperation, engaging in associative play with others. The teachers foster independence by building routines to help the children understand transitions and supporting self-help skills such as hand-washing and putting on shoes. Our preschool class is where our children begin to grow and flourish as independent learners with care and attention to their unique needs and abilities.
