Preschool / Preschool Plus

It has been demonstrated that children learn best through play.
Play is the “work” of a child.  Through play, children learn about people and their environment.
This is how children socialize and develop relationships.

Curriculum

To prepare your child for public school within Lexington District 1, we will parallel our curriculum to meet some of the district’s requirements. In addition to this, our curriculum will be open-ended, which allows for flexibility and the changing needs of the children. It is not intended that every child achieve mastery of skills presented to them, but instead be introduced to those skills. We will ensure that all activities are developmentally appropriate for each age group and your child will be  individually evaluated periodically throughout the year using the Ages and Stages Milestones.

We use a variety of materials coupled with different activities, which will give the children the opportunity to learn and develop their own interests guided by the teachers. These activities will help the children develop their cognitive, emotional, social and motor skills in each particular unit.

We use a weekly thematic based curriculum that introduces letters, numbers, colors, shapes, along with daily circle times. We also pair this with our weekly chapel stories and bible verses. Spanish is also taught throughout the week.
