Together We Grow is a program for Preschoolers, Pre-Kindergartners, and Transitional Kindergartners (2.9 – 6 years old) preparing them for their transition to Kindergarten. Our curriculum principles create an environment for children to develop, thrive, and be successful. Our teachers strive to build independence, respect and character by initiating positive relationships amongst the children. Classroom curriculum is designed and presented in an interactive approach encouraging participation and enthusiasm for learning.
Our preschool program assists children with their transition to school and creates a feeling of security and comfort in a warm and friendly learning environment. Preschoolers are given the opportunity to build relationships with the Pre and Transitional Kindergartners offering a wonderful peer role model to ease their adjustment into school. The teachers encourage this relationship to facilitate connections for Preschoolers to grow and learn through observations and role modeling.
Our Pre-Kindergartners and Transitional Kindergartners are entrusted as leaders of the school and commended when they make themselves available to a Preschooler needing assistance or a friend to look up to. Teachers emphasize their role to build self-esteem and character. Teachers aim to smooth the progress of our Pre and Transitional Kindergartners changeover to Kindergarten with the confidence and educational exposure for a positive school experience.
