Preschool Program

Room 4 – Preschool 1 – (2.5 years to 3 years)

The first of our preschool programs serves children from 2 1/2 years to 3 years. Twaddlers have expanded their language skills and can communicate verbally. Twaddlers love their independence and exploration is their number one priority. Two of their favorite expressions right now are “No!” and “Mine!” They are very curious and love to explore. The teachers in our 2-year old rooms have created a stimulating and warm environment for your children to grow and feel secure exploring their independence. Our curriculum safely encourages children to pursue their priority of exploring. The classroom environment is designed to further enhance this inquisitive stage. Twaddler teachers are special people who have tons of patience, lots of love and understanding and adore this age group. They are equipped with the tools and knowledge necessary to insure that each child has the opportunity to succeed, feel secure, and remain content and happy. Once a child is mature enough to handle “potty time” by himself/herself, and the staff and parents believe the child is socially, physically, and emotionally ready to move to the next classroom environment, the child will enter our next Program. This program, designed to meet the special needs of maturing twos and young threes, is a perfect bridge into our Prepper program.

Room 5 – Preschool 2 – (3 years to 3.5/4 years)

The second of our preschool programs serves children from 3 years to 4 years. 3-year old’s are full of wonder and enjoy spending time observing and imitating. They are very curious at this age and fill their days by exploring the world around them. We enrich their days in the classroom by providing them with lots of hands-on activities. Because 3-year old’s love to pretend, we provide plenty of opportunities for dress-up and imaginative activities. In this stage of development, there is a rapid increase in physical, cognitive, developmental and social skills. The Prepper program provides a balanced curriculum to satisfy this unique growth period. The children are introduced to a new Learning Experiences and our Zoophonics program, which is designed to challenge the rapidly developing verbal skills of each child. The monthly curriculum covers language, science, social studies, math, art, manipulatives, music and physical fitness. Children are also ready to learn letter recognition, shapes, colors and numbers. Preppers participate in more advanced arts and crafts and enjoy books read by their teachers, playing games and engaging in finger plays. A Prepper’s day is packed with fun!

Room 6 – Preschool 3 – (3.5/4 years to 4 years)

The third of our three preschool programs serves children from 4 years to 5 years. With their teachers acting as guides and facilitators of learning, the children at Kids Choice spend most of their time involved in “hands-on” activities, we believe academic learning is most effective when it is playful and exploratory. Our teachers in this program skillfully weave in academic goals and objectives as they build on what children can do, and challenge them to try new things. Children contribute their own ideas and use their own problem-solving strategies to explore the world around them. Children in this program continue with our Zoophonics program and are introduced to pre-reading skills, math and science. At this stage, children are very curious and eager to discover and master new skills.
