My Friend's Preschool, we are providing you with a peace of mind that during these early years of education your child is learning and developing their emotional, social physical, spiritual and intellectual skills through a fun play-based curriculum. We use the 7 meaningful skills to strength the foundation of academics.
Which are: Create, Move, Sing, Discuss, Observe, Read and Play. Play being the concrete that holds the foundation of the house of academics.
Intellectual learning takes place when we provide a wide variety of choices in activities that cover numerous subject matter, open-ended tasks and skill development all in the context of play with teachers who make it a goal to extend the child's discovery.
My Friend's Preschool supports a "developmental appropriate" curriculum that addresses activities for each age and stage of development. Specific curriculum is developed based on the need, interests and skill levels of children in each group. This flexibility is a description of the "emergent" opportunity that allows teachers to take advantage of "teachable moments". In this way, learning occurs in the context of meaning for the child, The physical environment establishes play areas in which teachers can make materials in various pre-academic areas such as dramatic play, art, science, math, sensory play, book corner, writing table, manipulative play, blocks, music and movement.
Emergent literacy maintains that children's literacy development follows a continuum that is based on their natural growth and maturation. In young children, it begins with symbols. As their brain matures, the symbols begin to take on abstract meanings, It is then that children begin to understand (decode) written language. And with the development of small motor skills, writing skills begin to emerge as well.
As the children's brain develops, and as they continue to mature their literacy skills will grow as well. The teacher have been careful to create with the children a literacy-rich environment that will foster a life-long language learning and loving experience.
