A variety of art materials are explored, including paint, crayons markers, and other unique sensory materials in order to create masterpieces.
Gym time and outdoor play both provide us with many opportunities to use our large muscles.
In the classroom, we develop our small muscles through manipulating playdough, scissors, stringing beads, and making puzzles. Beginning letter formation is taught using the “Handwriting Without Tears” program.
Our four-year-old preschoolers go on several field trips throughout the year. Typical field trips include Jollay Orchards, the St. Joseph Coast Guard station, and Love Creek Nature Center. Both 3-year-old and 4-year-old preschools also welcome community members into the classrooms such as Police Officers and Firefighters.
