PRESCHOOLERS

AGES 3-4 YEARS

 

Unique Little Hands Child Development Center has preschool classrooms that serve children ages 3 to 5 years. Our preschool program prepares children socially and academically, as well as, supports and encourages the development of independence, responsibility and confidence— all of which are essential for the child’s ongoing success in kindergarten. Our preschool classrooms have a maximum of five children in them. This gives us the ability to spend time with each child on an individual basis in order to get them prepared for kindergarten.

 

 

Our educational program focuses on each child’s social, emotional, intellectual and physical development by offering concrete, hands-on activities for the child to explore.  The preschool curriculum is designed to actively engage each child in developmentally and age-appropriate activities exploring the content areas of literacy, mathematics, science, social studies, the arts and technology. Our skilled teachers prepare a curriculum that is exciting and challenging, as well as supportive of each child's own learning style.

 

Our preschool room arrangement creates the optimum learning environment. It allows children easy access to educational toys, materials and books, enabling them to initiate and expand their activities. Our classrooms are organized with areas for exploratory play, manipulative toys, art creativity, dramatic play and reading, in addition to group activities.

 

To enhance learning experiences in our preschool, we offer local educational community representatives to volunteer, in class field trips and exploratory career learning, visual and manipulative aides to enhance individual learning and growth.
