What is a day like at New Hope Preschool?
Art Exploration and Child Directed Play
Play is a child’s work! During this time, the child is able to work at a variety of Learning Centers set up by the teacher to provide maximum learning for the children through his or her own discovery. This time slot also provides opportunity to explore paint, clay, dough, water and sand, in addition to other media. This block of time will also provide many opportunities to begin the discovery of Science, Math, Social Skills, Cooking, Emergent Literacy, Reading, Writing, and Language Development!
Together Time and Jesus Time
Together Time includes a gathering time to discuss God’s World Today: calendar, weather, helper for the day, and news! The calendar includes learning the month name, year, and LOTS of counting! Jesus Time provides the children with the opportunity for spiritual growth in the love of our Lord and Savior, Jesus! This love is always in the forefront of all our learning experiences.
Group Bathroom Break and Snack Fingerplays and Music
Please know that the children are always free to use the bathroom at any time. This time is set aside for hand washing before snack. Through music and the use of fingerplays, much literacy and mathematical foundations are developed.
Gross Motor Development
New Hope Preschool provides opportunity for the total child to develop daily. Children will be given time for outdoor or indoor gross motor play on a daily basis, in conjunction with visual developmental skills.
Water Break, Learning Extensions, Daily Review, and Closing Prayer
Water is critical to healthy brain development. This also provides a quiet time after active play. The children have the opportunity to continue the discovery of Science, Math, Social Skills, Cooking, Emergent Literacy, Reading, Writing, and Language Development in a small group learning environment. We always review our day together and close with Jesus.
There is so much learning that goes on in an Early Childhood Classroom, that it is impossible to list every activity. Our schedule is flexible and will vary from day to day. Many special days will be implemented into the program: Field Trips, Library Trips, Holiday Celebrations, and much more!
