The Grayson Academy Curriculum for preschoolers provides children with an array of individual, and small and large group activities. Each week children will explore a theme through group time introductions and reviews, daily enrichments, and additions to each learning center.
Because preschoolers like to learn new information and have the desire to master new tasks, much of what your child learns will be through self-directed experiences. Throughout the day children will have the opportunity to explore the classroom’s learning centers: Blocks & Building Design, Dramatic Play, Library & Literature, Math & Table Activities, Music & Movement, Sand & Water, Science & Discovery, and Writing Exploration. Learning through play, in these clearly defined areas of interest, promotes independence, fosters decision-making, and encourages hands-on involvement. Each learning center engages the child’s core components of development: social-emotional, language, cognitive, physical and aesthetic.
Our outdoor activities are planned to help extend learning to the outside classroom. Just as small muscle coordination is strengthened through puzzles, painting, and cutting, large muscle coordination is developed through outdoor play. Learning cooperation and team building through games and planned activities helps the preschool child understand effective physical and emotional management with his peers. Of course, sometimes just swinging and sliding are all children need to do and we take care of that with our state-of-the-art and age appropriate playground equipment.
Each child develops at their own pace and we encourage communication between staff members and parents on the progress of their child. Daily reports via Class Dojo to build positive behaviors with the students or weekly newsletters from the classroom teachers update parents on daily activities, future class projects and field trips.
