Each Preschooler will have several opportunities daily for individual attention and interaction with staff members. As each child progresses they will be introduced to more rigorous activities that are age appropriate for their participation.
When disciple issues arise we prefer to use techniques that help the child learn appropriate ways to resolve problems and conflicts. Our goal is to create an environment where children can gain self-control, self-respect, sensitivity towards others, and learn appropriate ways to resolve problems and conflicts. Our staff uses positive language, speaks on the child’s level, and uses guidance techniques that are tailored to the developmental level of each child. When a child demonstrates inappropriate behavior, the following guidelines are followed:
Redirect the child or provide an alternate choice.
Within the same day, the child will receive up to two warnings.
If problem persists, the child will take some time to regroup and return to the activities when he/she is ready and behavior is brought under control.
If misbehavior is frequent, parents will be notified.
If behavior problems persist individual behavior plans will be developed with the parents, teacher, and the Center’s Director.
The preschool room has a wide array of age-appropriate activities necessary for development and to prepare for kindergarten. Some of the playtime activities include puzzles, books, dramatic play, train tables, puppets, blocks, and many others. Children will focus on being able to complete self-help skills, speak understandably, identify alphabet letters, sort similar objects, counting skills, among others. Preschoolers will spend time outside as weather permits.
