In our Preschool classroom’s children are structured in their daily routines, so that children will know what to expect and to further their independence in taking care of themselves. We strive to prepare our children for the skills they need to take care of themselves and to be more successful when kindergarten begins. We have activities that incorporate math, science, fine/gross motor, dramatic play, language and literacy, and art.
