The Community Preschool has been in operation for over 30 years. It has an established reputation for a well-rounded, quality program that meets the intellectual, social and creative needs of children ages 2 to 5 years of age through an approach called Developmentally Appropriate Practice.
We believe that the child defines the curriculum and that children learn best through play. We follow the guidelines of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), which suggests that Developmentally Appropriate Practices are those that provide opportunities and activities for children related to their individual interests and institutes levels of development and ability. Our curriculum supports the development of children through cognitive, language, social, emotional, creative, physical and aesthetic activities. Active exploration of the environment through child-initiated experiences comprises the majority of each child’s time at preschool. Our pre-K curriculum uses science and math concepts with a hands-on approach in all key areas of the classroom (GEMS). This curriculum supports a strong linkage between the home and school, and assists the children in building confidence in themselves as they become learners that adapt to group experiences and learn to respect the feelings of others.
Our teachers are qualified by their own commitment, education, and experience. We are determined to continue the outstanding reputation that Community Preschool has maintained.
