Share in the Learning Fun
As your child grows, their cognitive skills and curiosity continue to bloom. ABC's pre-school program introduces a variety of concepts and skills such as math, science, language, and much more. All at a pace tailed for your little pre-schooler.
2 to 3 Years
Welcome to the ‘terrific twos’ where your toddler has exploded into their own little individual! With an age specific play yard, and energetic teachers, our twos use their seemingly unending energy to move through the day. We provide a flexible schedule that includes art, group time, inside centers (blocks, manipulative, science, library) outside large motor activates and exploring. There is a heavy emphasis on language development and social conduct. Our teachers focus on developing the social abilities that our twos will need as they grow, such as: sharing, manners, healthy habits, and of course, strong attachments and friendships. Beginning learning is introduced during group time, as our teachers use games and play to help children recognize colors, shapes, number amounts, and beginning science and math concepts. Our teachers are also potty training pros, working with families to move children from diapers to underwear and keeping consistent with the training moms and dads begin at home!
3 to 4 Years
Safely out of the twos, and starting to show their personalities and talents, our threes enjoy using their new vocabulary and social skills to dive headfirst into learning. They eagerly participate in group art projects, nature walks, organized outdoor games, and independently work at centers available in the room. Willing and able to do everything themselves, our threes are encouraged to develop self-help skills and independent thinking. Teachers guide the day with cleverly designed lesson plans that promote learning through play and hands on discovery. Building upon the foundation laid in our younger rooms, teachers expand the children’s learning as counting and shape and color recognition become more advanced, they also introduce ASL and beginning Spanish, not to mention working on personal behavior such as manners and social skills.
4 to 5 Years
Practically all grown up, our fours are focused and well rounded. They have a solid grasp of what they like, what they want to do, and how things work. With their teachers acting as guides and facilitators of learning, our fours spend most of their time involved in “hands-on” activities that tie into academic principles. Our teachers in this program skillfully weave in academic goals and objectives as they build on what children can do, and challenge them to try new things. Our kids contribute their own ideas and use their own problem-solving strategies to explore the world around them. In addition to the foreign language, ASL and other advanced learning, our fours practice writing at the independent writing center, have access to a variety of age appropriate books and language materials, and use each other to bounce new learning concepts around. While they still enjoy building castles in the blocks, managing a small flower shop in dramatic play, and helping care for the class pet in science, they also crave the pride of being able to write their name, learn their letters, and prepare for kindergarten. If you want your child to be prepared for kindergarten, our pre-k program lays a great foundation and will set them up for a successful kindergarten year!
