“Teach the children so it will not be necessary to teach the adults.”
Through our progressive pre school program your child will further their cognitive, socio-emotional and physical development. We provide independent exploration, learning centers, texts and workbooks, creative learning experiences and special activities for children on the age of 4 to 5.5 years. They are given opportunities to grow in responsibility and assume roles as leaders, observers, and contributors.
Preschool programs provide early childhood education and care for children, and help them develop a range of skills that make them ready to learn when they start school.
We work within our philosophy of the 4 C’s: critical thinking, creativity, collaboration and communication, by assisting children in finding answers, not by giving it to them. They are provided with a reading program in sequential manner, develop math skills and concepts through meaningful experiences with concrete objects, pictures, and the use of math symbols. They are given opportunities for freedom of expression through our art program, book making center, science and experiment center.
Our Preschool teachers stimulate children through spontaneous and reciprocal interactions.They’re taller, more coordinated and more attentive: they’re 4 year old and their individual personalities are starting to shine. Four-year-olds start to develop a sense of humor that they’ll enjoy sharing by telling silly jokes. This is the time when imaginary friends may be introduced, as well as repetitive imaginary games. They also begin to tell ‘little’ lies in order to keep from getting in trouble. Be prepared for plenty of little tests, as they’ll start to say and do things simply to gauge your reaction. It’s also not unusual for this age group to start asserting themselves, becoming a little bossy. Tattling becomes a favorite pastime, too. Of course, it’s always important to remember that children develop at different rates.
At Maximilian Preschool, we offer integrated approaches to our curriculum with real life contexts, meaningful experiences and opportunities for learning. Discovery learning is provided in both small groups and by independent learning experiences. We are believers that all a school can do and needs to do for their students is to develop their ability to think. We work on the 4 C’s skills with all students: critical thinking, creativity, collaboration and communication, to achieve independent thinking.
