A two-year-olds life is marked by rapid growth in language acquisition, self-sufficiency and social skills. Our beginner program is designed to maximize each child's individual growth by introducing a balance of spiritual, intellectual, social, emotional, and physical activities.
Developmentally appropriate lessons/activities are introduced through teacher designed learning centers. All activities are experiential and fun filled with a clear developmental goal in mind. An emphasis is placed on exploring and playing together as our beginners start their understanding of socially appropriate behavior.
These years are an important time for children to grow in their independence. When your child is ready, his/her teacher will work with you to successfully help in the potty training process. The Little Light Preschool staff is always available to help during this dynamic and exciting stage in your child's life.
Our intermediate classes are designed to foster a developmentally appropriate approach through learning centers. Activities in our center based curriculum are designed to maximize each child's individual growth by introducing a balance of spiritual, intellectual, social, emotional, and physical activities. The explorations of early learning skills include the areas of dramatic play, science and art. Emphasis is placed on cooperative play as children practice their understanding of socially appropriate behavior.
School readiness activities in pre-reading, writing, counting, number recognition and problem solving are presented in a fun filled and purposeful manner. While children are learning, Little Light offers a secure and loving environment with established routines and schedules that fosters the development of the whole child.
Furthermore, twice yearly, parents receive a detailed and in-depth Developmental Assessment. All students must be completely potty trained before being accepted into the 3-year-old program.
Our Pre-Kindergarten program provides a wide variety of planned activities centered on preparing 4-year-olds to excel in Kindergarten.
Educational activities are offered in areas of science, music, art, language and early reading and numbers, as well as, early math skills in our developmentally appropriate learning centers. These centers are designed to maximize each child's individual growth by introducing a balance of spiritual, intellectual, social, emotional, and physical activities.
Children work at activities to learn the alphabet and letter sounds, to learn numbers and simple math, and to master early writing skills.
Furthermore, our program measures each child's development in (twice yearly) written in-depth Developmental Assessment, as well as annual parent-teacher kindergarten readiness conferences in February.
