Class Description: This half day (3 hours) Pre-K class will provide a learning environment that affords each child opportunities to use their natural curiosity to make sense of their world. Through weekly themed learning centers, children will learn the alphabet, new vocabulary words and math concepts [ex: patterns, shapes, and numbers].

Since children learn best when touching and interacting with real things, this class will provide opportunities for each child to use hands-on materials. Sensory materials help children sequence, clarify and classify information; while refining their senses by touching, seeing, smelling, tasting, listening to and exploring their environment.

Social interactions arise naturally as children work together or side by side. Every situation, from waiting your turn in line to helping a friend provides the children with opportunities to develop peaceful social skills, respect for others, responsibility for oneself, and compassion for all.

NOTE:  BVC Preschool will remain in the same classroom for the entire half day session (with the exception of playground time). The morning and afternoon sessions are identical in content. Parents will need to enter building with ID to drop off and pick up preschool children.

I have taught Pre-K for the last six years in the public schools, and I enjoy teaching and integrating different types of materials into the classroom for my students to explore.
