NOW ACCEPTING NEW STUDENTS    

Play With Me Preschool provides a safe, loving educational environment for children. We accept children from potty-trained to 5 years of age (pre-kindergarten). We play developmentally appropriate lessons, games and activities.   

Mission Statement

Parents are the primary teachers of their children.  Our mission is to support parents in this role with a program that is developmentally appropriate and a commitment to developing a sense of respect, responsibility and love for learning within each child.  We embrace the concept that children learn best through play and hands-on experiences.  That is why I chose the name “Play With Me Preschool”.

Fabulous Fours (Pre-K) Program  

Our Pre-K program is designed for children who will be old enough to attend Kindergarten the following school year.  This generally means they need to turn four by September 1st to enroll in this class.  These children will have programs designed specifically for them to discover concepts necessary for reading, writing, math, science, concentration, staying on task, following directions, large and small motor skill development and socially appropriate behavior in a classroom.

Thrilling Threes Program

Our 2-day program is created as an introduction to a social environment.  It is designed to give your child a gentle, protected environment and to let them try out their emerging social skills.  Staff will guide them in appropriate behavior while still letting them interact and develop their own personalities.  Children will be introduced to games, stories and different art mediums as well as color and shape recognition.  Teachers will plan a learning environment that fosters self-esteem, cooperation, a sense of community, children’s initiative, and an active exploration of materials.
 

Mommy & Me Program

A developmentally appropriate class for children who are currently two or have recently turned three.  Our time together will include: free play (inside and/or outside), circle time with stories and songs, snack and art.  I want to help you engage your child in some fun "Play With Me" time.  The "best" part is that all you have to do is show up and have fun!

Curriculum
 

Our curriculum is designed around weekly themes which are communicated through each aspect of our day. We strive to maintain a balance between: child-directed and teacher directed activities, structure and flexibility, group needs and individual needs and program goals and children’s interests.

  • Free Play:  dramatic role playing, puppetry, individual pretend play, dress up, blocks, and other free choice items.
  • Circle time:  story telling, calendar and weather, alphabet, shapes, numbers and counting, colors, opposites, rhymes.
  • Art time:  painting, cutting, gluing, collages, chalk, markers, and crayons using a variety of materials and textures.
  • Physical activities:  outside play includes riding bikes, basketball, climbing structure with slide, outdoor play house, chalk, balls, hula hoops, sandbox, planting/gardening and other organized games.
  • Music Time:  singing, instrument play, rhythm sticks, musical games and rhyming chants or finger plays.
  • Table Time:  puzzles, Play-doh, manipulatives, sorting, beading, patterning and organized table games.

We use Zoo-phonics to introduce letter names and sounds. Zoo-phonics is a “reading readiness” program that teaches the alphabet using animal characters, sounds, and body movements.  Zoo-phonics is a kinesthetic experience and involves their eyes, mouth, ears and body.  One of the workbooks we will use is Comprehensive Curriculum of Basic Skills which introduces Basic Skills along with Reading, Writing and Math Readiness Skills and supports the Zoo-phonics Program.

 

At Play With Me Preschool we believe in teaching respect and responsibility by modeling the behavior we expect to see.  We believe that listening when others are speaking and speaking in polite and respectful tones will encourage children to do the same.  Responsibility is modeled by cleaning up after ourselves and taking responsibilities for our own actions.  Children will learn continuously as they explore their own environment and as we arrange carefully planned play areas to help children explore different themes.
