Our goal at Little Explorers Preschool is…
To provide a high-quality, developmentally appropriate early learning program for students. The objectives of Little Explorers Preschool’s play based learning program are to: Help children construct understanding through active interactions with adults, peers, materials, and events. Provide learning opportunities which build on prior understandings and experiences. Increase understanding of cultural, ethnic, and other differences. Provide integrated learning opportunities in the areas of art, music and movement, large muscle, math, science, and discovery, manipulative and fine motor, blocks, individual play, dramatic play, and literacy. Children need activities for physical, social-emotional, and academic development. Weekly themes are used within the preschool classroom to facilitate the integrated learning opportunities for students. Whole child assessments are completed three times per year, and parents are offered conferences two times per year, allowing all parents to remain involved and updated on their child’s social, emotional, and academic progress. A partnership between home and school is a key ingredient in each child’s success!
Little Explorers provides fun and relevant learning experiences by…
providing a fun, exploratory play based learning atmosphere! Students at Little Explorers will have an accurate expectation of a kindergarten classroom setting, and will be prepared to meet the social and academic objectives of kindergarten! We make learning exciting by challenging each child to think outside the box, and use his/her own thoughts to propose hypotheses and test them, explore new ideas, and discover new ways to accomplish tasks. Our theme based curriculum leads to questions, conversations, and hands on learning in a variety of subject areas.
Our educated and experienced staff will cheer for every success and gently lead through obstacles that may arise. We focus our attention on appropriate choices and behaviors, and talk through challenging behaviors with reminders of expectations, appropriate ways to express feelings and emotions, and understanding empathy and the feelings of others.
Our small class sizes allows each child to experience learning in a whole class group, smaller center groups, and one on one with a teacher. This provides ample opportunities for collaboration and expression of individual ideas; along with times for teachers to observe and assess a child in academic areas, as well as social interaction, and emotional regulation.
Little Explorers finds great value in indoor and outdoor big motor and movement! Large movement is a necessity for young children who learn with their whole bodies in the areas of coordination, physical space awareness, and large movement safety. We have an outdoor playground providing space for running, playing, and climbing. Our indoor play area provides space for large group games, dancing, and other gross motor activities.
Finally, each day we explore exciting activities in our STEM lab. Visiting the STEM lab in small groups gives each child ample time for hands on work, question and answer sessions, and exploration in uncharted areas. Providing opportunity for free thinking, creating, experimenting, and collaborating, STEM lab is the ideal place for a child to explore beyond limits and let their imaginations run free!
