CHILDREN’S PROGRAM

3 -year-olds are full of wonder and ready to learn by DOING. Through guided play at preschool they are:
• Developing social skills
• Using language to solve problems
• Practicing self regulation
• Making neural (brain) connections that are the foundation for reading and math

Our class provides a stimulating variety of choices to explore for active, whole body learning. Challenges of learning to wait and negotiate with friends are met with understanding and proactive teaching.

PARENT INVOLVEMENT

Parents assist in the classroom one day a week.

  • You choose whether your day each week will be either Mon/Tues/Wed morning.
  • Your child attends the other days without you.
  • If you cannot come in due to illness, etc. you ask another parent to trade with you.
  • We teach you ways to interact with the kids using our “positive discipline” philosophy.
  • On a rotating basis, bring healthy snack for the children.

Parents get to:

  • attend a monthly, evening parent meeting to discuss business and parenting topics
  • help with the running of the preschool and fundraising
  • choose a co-op job that fits your interests, skill, and time
  • become friends with other families that are investing in our children’s education

Parent Education is an important part of our Three Day Preschool

  • A professional Parenting Educator attends class one day each week (alternating Mon/Tues/Wed) ready to check in with you to offer tips that will help at home and at school
  • The class chooses one night a month for Parent Meeting–time to learn about guidance and discipline AND as an adult night out together (example: first Tuesday of each month)
  • To personalize your learning, choose from a list of free talks on topics such as: Guidance & Discipline, Raising Boys/Girls, How To Talk So Kids Will Listen, Sleep, Raising an Only, Making the Most of Temperament Traits

“Who said 3 year olds were easier than 2’s? At co-op I got new ideas….and I saw that my kid wasn’t ‘the only one’.”
