A peek inside our school...
Two Year Olds
Children experience a tremendous amount of growth between the ages of two and three! Our two-year old program is set up to encourage development in physical, social, cognitive, emotional, creative, and spiritual domains. Curriculum is designed to engage our littlest learners in exploring their environment, developing self-help skills, learning to work with others, and building confidence and curiosity! In addition, our two-year olds participate in weekly chapel, learning about God's love and how we can care for each other. They also spend time each day on our playground and weekly time in our studio, engaged in art and music.
Three Year Olds
Three-year olds are wonderfully curious! Many children experience large increases in vocabulary, and along with that, a great desire to form friendships. Often, small groups of children will begin to spontaneously have conversations with one another and occasionally work together. Our three-year olds begin to have a more structured large group time, enjoying lots of stories songs, and activities that engage their critical thinking skills. They have studio time, in which they can explore a variety of media as well as different types of music and movement. Chapel also occurs weekly, and our three-year olds are actively involved in outreach projects each month as well. Skills such as sorting, patterning, beginning letter recognition, and beginning name recognition start to emerge at this age. We also enjoy lots of time outside whenever we can!
Four Year Olds
Four-year olds are active, inquisitive, and thoughtful. They are enjoying closer friendships, and our program encourages these skills through lots of opportunities for children to collaborate and work together! Problem-solving and social skills continue to be a focus with our fours, as children are encouraged to share ideas, take turns, think critically, and express themselves in a variety of ways. Children's developing language skills are supported through daily opportunities for reading, sharing (and writing!) ideas, letter and sound awareness, and the use of real signs and labels throughout the school. Math skills grow through play-based games and real-life opportunities to use skills such as patterning, sorting, and counting. Children participate in weekly chapel sessions, learning about God's love, and are actively involved in regular outreach projects. There are also regular opportunities to explore the fine arts in our studio, and daily time on our natural playground.
We understand that the needs of our CCPA families may reach beyond Preschool hours. We offer an Aftercare program for parents, who need additional childcare after our Preschool hours end at 12:30. Our Afterschool children are guided by their Preschool Teacher, to a room where they enjoy lunch with their friends, outdoor activity and then nap/rest time. After nap, they have a school provided snack and lots more planned activities (indoor/outdoor) until the end of the day at 5:30, Parents are welcome to pick their child up anytime between 12:30-5:30, depending on what meets their family schedule.
