This program is typically for children who are 2½ years old or having their first school experience. Classes meet Thursday and Friday morning from 9am-12pm. Our curriculum is designed to help children accomplish several goals, including:
  • Develop fine motor skills through manipulating crayons, play dough, gluing and clay;
  • Recognize and identify primary colors and four basic shapes;
  • Focus, sit and listen for a five minute story or activity;
  • Develop independent behavior which is measured by the ability to wash hands, sip from a cup, remove and put on simple clothing without help;
  • Learn to cooperate with peers by playing in a group of two or three children for a brief time;
  • Begin to verbalize needs;
  • Develop sensory awareness by working with different textured materials; and
  • Separate from parent and interact with other adults in familiar surroundings.
