Ladybugs

Preschool is a very exciting but often overwhelming time for children. We work hard to make this a very smooth transition and one that will be the least amount of stress on our students.

The preschool class will be one large class that will be divided into several smaller sections. Children will be placed in small groups for a more personalized experience. The following is an example of our daily schedule:

6:00-8:45 AM: Breakfast (served until 8:00 AM) and Center Play
8:45-9:00 AM: Restroom Break
9:00-9:30 AM: Circle Time (Calendar, Weather, Days of the Week, Months of the Year, Assign Class Jobs, Discuss Day’s Events)
9:30-10:00 AM: Small Group Instruction: Handwriting Without Tears
10:00-10:30 AM: Special Classes-Art, Music, PE (Mon/Wed/Fri) Computer Lab (Tues/Thurs)
10:30-11:00 AM: Recess/Sensory Room Play
11:00-12:00 PM: Classroom Instruction: Jolly Phonics (along with Sign Language, Spanish, Number Review)

*For full time students, the remaining portion of the day is as follows:
12:05-12:35 PM: Lunch
12:35-12:45 PM: Restroom Break/Prepare for Nap
