Preschool Philosophy

Our preschool program is designed to provide learning experiences that will best meet the needs of each individual child. Development of the whole child (emotionally, spiritually, socially, intellectually, and physically) is our goal. PLAY is a fundamental part of our program, as it is through play that children learn cooperation, problem solving, language, mathematics, and to develop values, curiosity, self-esteem, coordination, and self-direction.

We believe that every child learns in a different way, especially at this young age, and they should be allowed to explore the world in their own unique ways.

Daily Schedule
  • Arrival and Tabletop Activities
  • Morning Meeting – We say our morning prayers, including the children’s intentions. We also do fingerplays, math/language activity, and music/movement. We read a story and/or discuss the topic we are currently working on. Any projects are also introduced and modeled if necessary.
  • Exploration-Children have the opportunity to explore the different centers around the classroom. Activities are changed often in order to go along with the current topic of study and/or season. Students are also able to participate in daily academic and artistic projects that are frequently teacher facilitated-these include science experiments and journal entries.
  • Clean up
  • Snack – Students take turns providing a daily snack. Keeping the environment in mind, cloth napkins and reusable plastic cups are used.
  • Outside Time-We go outside to the playground every day, weather permitting (above 20 and not raining)
  • Dance and Dismissal-We end our morning with a dance or creative movement. Then the morning students are dismissed to their parents.
  • Lunch-Students provide their own daily lunches-refrigerator and microwave are available. This year, the preschoolers will also be able to participate in Seton’s hot lunch program. All preschoolers eat together in one of the classrooms with Mrs. Koerner and Mrs. Smith.
  • Clean up/Bathroom/Rest Time-Students rest on their own blankets with the lights off and quiet music playing.
  • Literacy Activities
  • Daily Special (see separate specials schedule)
