The Components of our Pre-K Learning Curriculum
Your child will benefit from the learning methodology based on the High Scope curriculum. The following daily activities as prescribed by the High Scope Curriculum will make the most of your child’s creative and intellectual development:
Bible Story – a time to learn of Jesus and God’s saving grace through daily devotions, prayers, Bible lessons, and Bible verses. The children are also invited to sing in designated church services throughout the year including a Children’s Christmas Service.
Circle Time – a time where children sit together and participate in activities related to the weekly themes including songs, finger play, storybooks, action rhymes, and stories with flannel board illustrations all designed to spur creativity and enhance their imagination.
Bean Table – From the small motor skill of scooping to the science and math skill of measuring, the bean table encourages experimentation and curiosity.
Handwriting Center – cutting, coloring, tracing, gluing, and more! This center is designed to strengthen small muscles for writing and builds your child’s left to right eye and hand to eye coordination.
Creative Art – open-ended projects such as painting and picture collages encourage their imagination.
Outside Games and Activities – no child should be cooped up indoors all day! Outdoor activities help children explore the wonders of nature and enjoy the benefits of unstructured physical play.
Playdough Table – a place for your child to create and to build small motor skills essential for handwriting
Block Area – an area with multiple sizes and types of blocks for building and creating. It is a wonderful area for learning the scientific skills of gravity and balance, as well as the social skills of cooperation and teamwork.
Manipulative and other Toys – an area to imagine and create, also building social skills of sharing, taking turns, and cooperation
Housekeeping Area – an area to pretend and imagine, share and cooperate
Small Group Time – This time is intentionally planned and teacher-directed to work on specific skills and knowledge for future academic success.
