Preschool Age

Our program provides a rich classroom environment where children are encouraged to explore, create and problem solve, while making friends and developing self confidence. Our curriculum introduces language, literacy, math, science, sensory exploration, Spanish, sign language and social skills. We know that children learn best when they are actively engaged, so we give them plenty of hands on activities to involve them in concepts and to empower them to find ways to learn that are right for them. Below you will find a pretty in depth breakdown of some of the areas we work on and goals for the year but please keep in mind we firmly believe in making learning fun and ensuring their childhood memories of The Breakie Bunch are nothing but laughter and smiles.

Features

Literacy

Reading and writing are two ways in which children develop language and early literacy skills. Children grow into strong readers and writers when they are encouraged to:

  • Ability to retell and predict stories
  • Rhyming, finger plays
  • Writing their name
  • Use forms of early writing (Scribbling, drawing, or letter-strings)
  • “Read” the stories they write
