ADVENTURES IN LEARNING PRESCHOOL ROUTINE:
We follow a daily schedule with time for self-discovery, socialization, and small gross motor development. The YMCA Early Childhood Curriculum includes weekly themes and offers a variety of Pre-K activities to prepare your child for life endeavors and school readiness.
We strive to meet the individual needs and assist the development of children in all developmental areas or domains: intellectual, social, emotional, and physical utilizing what is called whole child instruction. We support the concept that young children are developing in several areas of domains simultaneously and that each of these areas of development are not only equally important, but also interwoven.
Our activities include a dynamic approach to learning based on multiple intelligences. Your child will learn not only through reading, writing, and math but also through music, art, building, moving, engaging in outdoor learning experiences, interacting with other children, thinking, and reflecting.
Children are engaged in a learning environment designed to emphasize STEM and Fine Arts through Linguistic, Logical-Mathematical, Spatial, Bodily-Kinesthetic, Musical, Naturalist, Interpersonal, and Intrapersonal methods. Our areas are stocked with a stimulating range of materials designed for specific types of play.
