Our Beginners Preschool Program is called the Sea Otters. Here children become potty trained in a gentle and supportive environment. They also have a great academic program that is geared for their specific development and teaches them in a fun yet challenging way.
During their Daily Circle Time they have morning greetings and name recognition (a pre reading activity). They also talk about the calendar and review the days of the week. Their teacher reads them age appropriate stories and they sing songs.
The Sea Otters do art activities daily. This includes both crafts and free art based on their thematic unit. Art time gives them a creative outlet and helps to perfect their fine motor skills. They also have music and movement activities every day.
Some of the concepts they work on include, but are not limited to: social, verbal, and fine motor skills; colors, shapes, numbers and letters; music language, science and art; potty training.
The potty training program is extremely successful. The teachers are a wonderful asset, helping them to achieve this next important level of independence.
