Programs for Ages 3 and 4
Our preschool programs are dedicated to preparing your child for kindergarten.
The Learning Garden strives to instill the love of learning in all children. This sets the stage for success in all facets of life. We encourage children to become thinkers, view things from different perspective, develop commitment to tasks and to expand their social skills. Research shows that a high quality preschool helps set the stage for a childs success.
In our preschool program we will also introduce your child to computers. Exposure to computers is important as they are now a part of most kindergarten classrooms. Working with computers at the preschool level will give your child an advantage when entering kindergarten. They won’t need to learn how to use the computer itself, they will be able to just jump right in and start using them for learning!
The curriculum for this age group includes learning about:
- Literacy through sound recognition
and site words
- Letter and number recognition
- And more!
Here’s what some of our parents are saying!
“I cannot say enough about the staff at the Learning Garden! As a foster parent, I appreciated their attentiveness and their flexibility. Great communication! They gave our little guy the utmost attention, such a great start!”Liz C.
“These women are the most wonderful ladies I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. My kids have been coming here for the past 7 1/2 years and I wouldn't have it any other way. They have become family and I recommend this center to everyone I know! ”Jennie P.
“Definitely recommend! I looked at a lot of other daycares and The Learning Garden is by far the best! My daughter absolutely loves it there! The staff is wonderful and the amount of things my daughter learned was outstanding. ”Danielle A.
Staying Active is Important
Learning continues through activity for our preschoolers. We spend a lot of time playing outdoors.
Your child will also have the opportunity to engage in a number of sensory activities whether enjoying the water table, using playdough or making “goop”!
Daily reports are still sent home for this age group. We’ll provide details on how your child’s day went and note anything you may need to know. Twice a year, we also provide a progress report that will help you evaluate your child’s growth and development needs.
Progress reports are done twice a year, in January and again in June to provide parents with an overview of their child’s strengths and abilities.
Social studies and science are introduced with an age appropriate activities. Experimenting with magnets, celebrating Martin Luther King Day and studying caterpillars and butterflies are just a few examples.
We offer full and part-time enrollment for all programs.
