Trailblazers-Full Day Preschool
and four year old children may attend all day preschool for 2, 3 or 5 days a
week. Concepts are introduced during Circle
Time. Readiness skills are introduced
and practiced during Teacher Table.
Social skills and language skills are reinforced during Stations where
students work as partners to complete a given task, to play a game, or to review
a newly acquired skill. Weekly small
group activities introduce the basic concepts of math and science. The staff reinforce the development of good
manners, table etiquette, problem solving skills, and appropriate hygiene
practices in addition to providing a strong foundation for academics.
Centers allow children to explore their senses, to use their creativity, to
design projects or play scenarios, to construct
or to build using a variety of materials, and to communicate with one another
during this learning process. Students
are responsible for returning learning materials to their appropriate places at
the end of each play session.
Morning circle time.
Young children use their senses to make dazzling discoveries about light and color. This early introduction to the scientific method will expose students to procedures used in the world of science.
Trailblazers use wet sand to simulate the California Tar Pits during their Young Scientist Dinosaur Unit. They explored how fast they would sink in sands with different moisture levels.
