Mudpups – Preschool Program
What makes pre-school fun? What makes a child want to learn? It is a program like ours. Our safe and enriching program focuses on all aspects of learning. Hands-on activities encompass exciting monthly themes which include nutrition, cooking, holidays, dinosaurs, and safety, to name just a few.
A child’s feeling of independence and social interaction with others is important during this time. Children learn to help themselves and to make friends, share and communicate with their friends. We continue to encourage the use of the bathroom on their own, although assistance is given if necessary. Their individuality is celebrated.
During the course of the day, children are encouraged to make choices for themselves, cooperate with others as well as listen and follow directions. We offer time to explore a variety of learning centers, which offer items to help stimulate young minds. They work on their handwriting skills (starting with their name), colors, shapes, and numbers. This also gives each teacher the opportunity to work one-on-one with each child. Literacy is also introduced with the letter of the week and circle time interactive readings. During Circle time the calendar is introduced helping them learn the days of the week and the months of the year. Patterns, graphing, simple math and science activities are included in the weekly activities. Each child’s day is documented in real time with our KidReports that explains toileting, eating, and rest time.
