The Pre-K program at Adventure Place is designed to ensure your child will walk into kindergarten with all the knowledge and self-confidence needed to be successful. Our daily program begins at arrival! The children have a few minutes to get acclimated to their environment. They can socialize with their friends, chat with their teacher or get involved in a learning center.
When all of the children arrive it’s time to clean up and get the learning underway! The morning begins with circle time. Circle time consists of calendar, weather, reading a story and a discussion on what they are learning for the day. After circle time the children choose an interest area of their choice. Some interest areas help children strengthen a skill and some are introducing a new skill/concept to the child. The teachers planned activities for the week offer a variety of experiences from math, writing, and reading to social studies, art and science. The children also have dramatic play, a listening center and computers available to them as well.
1 on 1 Time
The teachers make it a point to work with each child one on one at least once a week. She is always involved in the group activities but she feels it’s necessary to get to know the children in her class and make sure they feel comfortable with her. Social development is continued to be closely monitored as well. The children are encouraged to work out their problems with their peers before going to a teacher. They are expected to help each other out and promote teamwork within the classroom.
Assessments are filled out three times a year; November, February and May. Parent teacher conferences are conducted in February to keep the parents up to date and answer any questions or concerns they may have. Adventure Place has an open door policy. Parents are welcome at any time and questions and concerns will be taken care of right away.
