Our Preschool Program provides an enriching, interactive and educational environment for children 3 to 5 years of age. We offer three types of classrooms designed to meet the specific developmental and/or age needs of your child. Our qualified Team members apply an emergent, play-based curriculum rich in literature and science. They utilize holistic approaches to instruction designed to meet the needs of all learners. Children are exposed to early language, mathematical, and scientific concepts through plenty of hands-on crafts and activities aligned with weekly educational themes, dramatic play, and outdoor exploration on our large rural property.
Our Transition to Preschool room supports children who have aged out of the Toddler Program and are continuing to practice toilet training as well as other independent skills. Our dedicated staff members collaborate closely with our Toddler Team and families to work towards meeting developmental milestones. Children in our Transition room enjoy free and guided play, circle times, and stimulating age-appropriate crafts.
Our Three Year Old Preschool room is designed for potty-trained three to four year old children who are socially and emotionally adjusted and ready for preschool learning objectives and concepts. Our Three Year Old room offers generous free and guided play times, circle times, exciting crafts and activities, and ample opportunities for continued social and emotional growth.
Our Four Year Old Preschool rooms are specifically designed to support your child in all areas of development for a strong foundation towards transitioning to Kindergarten. The Brookwood School works closely with the local school district to inform our Program’s learning objectives and developmental goals. Children experience a range of instructional approaches to preschool learning objectives with a strong emphasis on character development and social-emotional intelligence. As with our other Preschool rooms, children experience free and guided play, exciting literature and science-based themes and hands on activities and crafts.
As with our other Programs, our Preschool staff attend regular professional development trainings and are CPR/First Aid Certified. Preschoolers in our care also enjoy Physical Education three times a week and Music and Spanish weekly, all lead by qualified professionals.
