Two’s - Preschool
The two's children enjoy spending time with other youngsters their own age and becoming involved with group activities. Structured educational programs introduce them to basic concepts in language arts, math, science and social studies. We have specifically designed learning centers for individual and group projects that encourage children to make discoveries about themselves, fellow beings and the world we all share and live in.
It is our hope that we can develop in each child a positive self image and a love of learning and going to school. In the 2 & 3 years old classes we provide many activities to do just that. Each activity that is presented to the children is a result of much planning. Children like to be actively involved. When more than one sense is used in teaching a task, learning is greatly improved.
Art is used as a teaching device, as well as a fun way to play, in the preschool class. Freedom with art supplies encourages using the imagination and is also a good release for emotions. Eye-hand coordination is also developed.
Cooking is included in our curriculum at CRCA Preschool. Besides learning about the major food groups, the children are more likely to eat something they have made. This is also a good time to encourage math and science through measuring and mixing and cooking.
Language Development includes time set aside in group time for show and tell, discussions about different subjects, flannel board stories, and most importantly, books.
Creative Dramatics and movement encourages free expression and also allows the imagination to surface. This is done through the use of puppets, dress up clothes, blocks, and various props added to the classroom.
