Preschool – Erin Pemberton/Veronica Cartmell
The 4-5-year-old classroom focuses on preparing for Kindergarten. Students in this classroom work on pre-academic and independent skills that will allow them to make an easier transition into school age services. Each classroom uses The Creative Curriculum and builds on student’s prior knowledge and interests while maintaining an effective learning environment. Students of this age are beginning to participate in modeled writing activities, read-alouds, and are able to provide suggestions to navigate their own play and work. Various technologies including computers, iPads, and a smart board facilitate our work within the curriculum. Our curriculum focuses on various studies throughout the year (Insects, Pets, Music and Movement, Sand and Water, Buildings, Trees, and more) and encourages family support through activities and family volunteers in each of those studies.
