The Preschool program welcomes many students for their very first school experience. Students are given the opportunity to learn how to learn, work, and play in a group environment. Because play is the way young students assimilate experiences, they are encouraged to engage in a wide variety of educational-play activities throughout their day. Instruction and practice in the skills of problem-solving, decision-making, and communication are incorporated into daily activities. Engaging, thematic units are designed to include instruction in all areas of child development: cognitive, social, emotional, and physical.
The following list represents year-end benchmark goals for Preschool students. We acknowledge that some students have capabilities of going well beyond these basic expectations. In keeping with high expectations and differentiation, we can strive to meet the range of all abilities and needs.
