During your child’s time in the toddler program, their teachers will work diligently with you to help your child transition through the stage of potty training. Our goal is for each child to enter into the preschool program either being potty trained or in the process. Not to worry or stress – being potty trained is not a requirement for the preschool program!
The ratio in the preschool program is one teacher for every eight children, with a maximum of 24 children and three teachers or 16 children and two teachers.
Children are encouraged on a daily basis to interact and communicate in a positive way and support their ability to self-regulate. This can be accomplished by recognizing and supporting children’s developing and carried self-regulation abilities in all the domains (biological, emotional, communicative, cognitive and social).
We encourage all children in our preschool program to participate in both large and small group activities. These include dramatic play, arts and crafts, sensory experiences, gross and large motor activities, outdoor play and sometimes special field trips.
Our teachers are here to provide a curriculum that focuses on the child’s full development and help prepare them for entry into Kindergarten and the school system. The teachers work together to facilitate programming that is educational, fun and keeps the children’s interests engaged.
