At CBE preschool we understand the importance of appropriate educational experiences and their role in the success of children as they develop and grow. We offer a variety of developmentally-appropriate programs to help prepare your child for the challenges of kindergarten, first grade and beyond.
At CBE Preschool, we realize choosing the right preschool for your child is a significant and exciting decision. We want you to feel certain you're choosing a preschool that focuses on learning, yet appreciates the significance of fun. Our preschool encourages your child's development, without him or her growing up too fast. You want an atmosphere where your child can make friends and share the fun of learning with other children. We know that you want your child to be cared for by teachers who keep him or her safe, loved and nurtured based on individual personality and unique abilities.
Your child's preschool classroom itself is also an invaluable teaching tool. The space has been carefully designed to delight, intrigue and inspire young learners. Each classroom is divided into Learning Centers such as Language and Circle Time, Blocks and Creativity and Art. Each center invites your child to explore and marvel at the wonders of the world around him. No matter which area captures your child's interest on a particular day, he's developing important skills. Here are some key examples:
This is where your child starts their day through meaningful experiences like storytelling, singing songs and show and tell. Children learn to express their ideas and discover their world independently.
Children experience art through the freedom of touching, feeling, pulling, twisting, tearing, pasting, bending, scraping, cutting, pounding, shaping, and so much more. They are developing a feel for forms, balance, line, color, and shape as well as gaining practice in problem solving, sharpening their powers of observation, and beginning the process of logical thinking, and developing motor skills. Art is a hands-on activity for your child.
Music activities give children opportunities to use their entire bodies for learning and exploring their surroundings, building awareness by listening to the many kinds of sounds, Children will be encouraged to test their abilities and to have fun while they are experimenting. We emphasize the enjoyment of participation.
This is an area where children can stack and count blocks to help them learn measurement, size, weight and number concepts. They also build hand-to-eye coordination, and develop control of their wrists, hands and fingers. They will develop problem-solving skills through trial and error. If a block structure falls, your child might try it a different way until satisfied with the results.
We have dress-up clothes, props and child-sized furniture that invite children to make believe. They learn to share, make friends and express different emotions.
Children learn sorting and counting skills, putting materials in order and patterning. Math is a way of finding things out, a way of problem solving. Through manipulating small materials, children will also begin to understand basic concepts such as big/little, large/small, same and different.
Children have the opportunity to have hands-on, real-life activities that encourage a sense of discovery. The activities include playing with living things, using magnets, magnifiers, sand and water tables.
