This class is designed for the older preschooler (5 years old), who is developmentally ready to experience more direct instruction. This class also emphasizes emergent literacy, writing, alphabet recognition, and phonemic awareness through activities that involve the whole child. Basic math concepts and number recognition are taught with a hands-on approach. Children have many opportunities to experiment, predict, and problem solve. The open-ended approach, in addition to teacher direction at this age level, stimulates creativity in many ways, especially through art and science. Some special 5+ activities include classroom field trips, the Letter People curriculum, and beginning reading groups.
Legacy Preschool programs encourage learning and growth through play in an environment designed so that children may strengthen muscles, build coordination, stretch imaginations, and have fun!! Our curriculum is broken down into thematically based literature units intertwined with God’s Word. We provide experiences that give students the opportunity to develop confidence and to recognize their God-given abilities. Our focus is on teaching character development and helping your child meet developmental benchmarks in education.
