____________________________

Preschoolers and Jr. Kindergartners are expanding their world by developing their communication, thinking and reasoning skills. Our Preschool and Jr. Kindergarten classrooms create an environment full of natural, hands-on and thought-provoking materials.

PRESCHOOL CLASSROOM

Our preschoolers are in an environment that encourages them to choose the type of play that interests them. By doing this, each child is discovering his/her own learning style. As each child discovers and participates in each area of purposeful play, teachers observe and document each child and the classroom dynamic. The teachers are then able to determine individual and group lessons according to each child’s stage of development and interest. Because the children are involved in purposeful play that they enjoy, they aren’t aware that they are developing skills in communication, reading (connecting letters and sounds) and math.

Our classroom environment is also designed to inspire each child to determine his role in a nurturing environment. Children continue to learn about social cooperation through group projects, especially how to resolve conflict, solve problems, and exhibit basic manners.

JR. K CLASSROOM

Once our preschoolers are age 4, they are moved to our Jr. Kindergarten class. The Emilia School recognizes Ohio’s Early Learning and Development Standards (ELDS) and we keep current with the local school systems to ensure our preschoolers are gaining the skills they need to be prepared for Kindergarten. As in all our classes, the students will learn at his/her own pace and will continue to participate in stimulating engaging projects and purposeful play.

Our program is designed for our students entering Kindergarten to have an enthusiasm for learning, the desire to be independent and gain the necessary abilities at a Kindergarten level or above.
