Preschool

Our Reach for the Stars Curriculum is aligned with Step Up To Quality. The Early Learning Guidelines (ELG) are designed to cover:

  • Social and Emotional Well Being
  • Gross-Motor
  • Fine-Motor
  • Number Sense
  • Counting Recognition
  • Name Writing and Basic Site Words
  • Literacy
  • Extended Shapes
  • Music and Dance
  • Nature Exploration

 

Language:

Your child’s language will develop a lot this year. He/She will show more interest in communicating and might show interest in telling stories and having conversations.

 

Physical/Science:

During this year, your child really starts to understand that her/his body, mind and feelings are her/his own. They are much better at recognizing their own feelings – such as happiness, sadness, fear or anger – and have a very broad imagination. Your child will start to form real friendships now and build more social skills during this period.

 

Cognitive and Problem Solving:

Preschoolers are fascinated by the world around them and will ask “who”, “what” and “why” questions as he/she tries to understand more about his/her world. Developing or improving skills such as pedaling a tricycle, throwing, catching and kicking a ball, running, climbing, jumping, hopping and balancing on one foot will be a focus in Preschool.

When it comes to using his/her hands, your preschooler will have the skills to draw a circle or square, build big towers of up to 20 blocks and use scissors. They will enjoy using crayons, pencils and paintbrushes, drawing and painting to fire up their imagination and creativity.
