Mother Goose Christian School Curriculum
Preschoolers are usually most responsive to activities in which they are involved in a “hands-on” manner. Our teachers accept that and design their classroom spaces with “learning stations” at which children can freely choose whether to participate or not and for how long. Our quality staff rotate and add materials frequently to maintain and extend the child’s interest. Often our teachers create their own games and materials if commercial ones do not offer the challenge needed, or do not reflect the interests and abilities of the children. This reflects the currently recognized theory that endorses non-pressured, child-centered activities guided by an adult with strong problem solving skills. In such a program, parents truly become partners with the professional staff. Information or discoveries about the child’s development are mutually shared, resulting in a program tailored to the individual child.
The preschool curriculum include activities centering on communication, science, math, language arts, social studies, music, art, large and small motor development. An enrichment program that includes field trips and visitors is offered. Dramatic play opportunities reinforce learning of practical life experiences.
