All three-year-olds show curiosity and the need to investigate. Your child asks questions such as
who, what, when, and why.
Preschool will help them to answer these questions. They are developing their language skills and
engaging in simple conversations. They are developing more sophisticated social skills; and
enjoy being with other children. They want to have and be a friend. They are learning to share
and wait their turn. They are beginning to understand that people are both alike and different
in how they look and feel.
When they play with blocks and in sand, water, and dirt they are learning about the physical world.
When they role play in Dramatic Play Center they are working on making sense of their world. When
they use free choice art materials they are learning to plan, use fine motor skills, complete a task,
and to take responsibility for cleaning up after themselves.
In Preschool we talk about feelings and manners, read and tell stories, sing songs, dance to music,
do art projects, cook, garden, investigate math and science concepts, learn about colors, shapes,
and sounds, and become even more independent. We also have a lot of FUN!
As children play, our teachers observe how they use materials and what sparks their interests.
We listen to find out what they are thinking. We ask questions to challenge them further and,
with the information we gather, we plan lessons and set up developmentally appropriate activities
that foster their cognitive and social growth. This plans based on the Delaware Earling Learning
Foundations serve as a base from which we prepare Teaching Strategies Gold assessments to conduct
semi-annual family / teacher conferences.
We would like to welcome you and your child as they make the step of starting Preschool.
