Our Prepper classroom is considered a "pre" preschool. The children will continue to learn the skills they will need to be successful in an organized classroom. Potty training will be mastered in this classroom. (Children will not graduate to the Preschool room until they are completely potty trained.) Social skills are an important part of this classroom. They will be learning to share and work as a team, as well as use table manners and be respectful to each other and grown ups. They will develop a sense of indpendence that will help them be successful in their future classrooms. Nap and meal times are done as a group at scheduled times.
The Prepper curriculum is also Pinnacle Curriculum through the Childcare Education Institute. It will focus on all major developments, as well as offer nature experiences, music, art, sensory, and other learning opportunities. Your child will experience a "circle time" and their classroom will be divided into "centers".
They may graduate to the Preschool room when they turn 2 years, 6 months and are potty trained. You will be notified when your child is scheduled to transition and will be given a chance to meet your child's new teacher and tour the classroom.
**Promotions to next room is always based on child's development and space availability
