Interacting and Becoming ME!
At Circle Time, we have a unique program geared toward children between the ages of 2 ½ and 3 years. We call this our young preschool enrichment. Children who are ready for preschool but not yet potty trained have the opportunity to still attend preschool with children their own age. In our young preschool program the children are learning a wide range of material. Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:30am-12:00pm the classroom is engages in structured play that promotes all areas of development.
This class will give your child an early introduction to a learning based preschool environment. We introduce structure, social skills and potty training to your child. This will make your child more confident to move into our preschool programs. Children in this classroom are learning through hands on exploration, songs, movement, and well thought out FUN lessons! During learning time the children have a weekly focus including: a letter, number, color and shape. They participate in creative discovery daily and are encouraged to become more independent.
A large focus in this classroom is Potty Training! Every hour we encourage the children to use the potty. We reward them, and boost their self esteem during bathroom time. Every child has a potty log where they can earn stickers and prizes for their potty use. Once the children are using the potty regularly we transition them into the Preschool 1 classroom where they continue to excel through their early education career.
Young Preschool families have the option to attend full or ½ day. Our full day Preschool is between the hours of 6:00am-6:00pm this is for working parents who need Childcare and preschool. After preschool the children participate in a nap/rest time followed by station play and recess. Our ½ day program PRESCHOOL ONLY is between 8:30am-12:00pm
