Activity Guide Spring/Summer 2019 - Page 48

PRESCHOOL At our Preschool, children learn through an academic and play-based curriculum to facilitate learning concepts including writing, science, vocabulary, numbers, shapes, math, and other cognitive abilities. Program activities serve many developmental purposes; participants learn problem-solving skills and how to sort out and organize new ideas. They develop an understanding of social awareness, investigate and experiment with new possibilities. The academics incorporated into the program will ensure students are prepared to move to the next level and eventually be Kindergarten-ready. Our program is a mixture of teacher-guided activities and playtime, with small and large group activities based around a weekly theme. Children engage in fine and large motor skill activities, art projects, music, books, dramatic play, cooking, writing and more. Children also have monthly visits from B#Sharp Music for Children and the Park District Naturalist. REGISTRATION Registration will be for the complete school year and must be done in person at either the Spring Avenue Recreation Center or Main Street Recreation Center.
