The goal of our school district's preschool program is to provide high quality early childhood experiences for children in a safe, supporting, and stimulating environment. Another goal of preschool is to prepare them for kindergarten.
Our comprehensive preschool program uses standards-based curriculum, called Creative Curriculum, to create an environment that supports learning through play and discovery in a center-based environment. The curriculum also helps teachers to develop small and large group learning experiences to enhance their development. Progress is observed and documented using the GOLD assessment in all developmental (social-emotional, motor, cognitive, and language) and content areas (literacy, mathematics, science, social studies, the arts, and technology).
A quality early childhood experience also includes a valued partnership between the school and families. We are family focused and facilitate learning in all developmental areas.
The link between early childhood and STEM is indisputable. Early exposure to STEM – whether it be in school, at a museum, a library, or just engaging in the natural trial and error of play – supports children’s overall academic growth, develops early critical thinking and reasoning skills, and enhances later interest in STEM study and careers.
