Info about the preschool:
The Preschool Program is based on teacher directed and student directed methods. Kid's World does not follow the popular creative curriculum. Students will have the opportunity to explore through centers and whole group activities. Kid's World will have teacher directed small groups. The students will learn beginning reading and math skills along with social/emotional objectives. Science and social studies objectives will be taught throughout the year. Kid's World uses a variety of proven programs in our preschool. Come in and see for yourself!
Kid's World will work with each child on their level during small groups. For example, if a student is beginning to reading, we will continue to promote their reading level. If a student doesn't have any concept of letters, we will work on those.

Arts and Crafts
Children will have the opportunity to create with a variety of materials. Arts and crafts will work on fine motor and hand-eye coordination skills.
Children will have the opportunity to listen to a variety of stories geared around the various themes. Stories will develop listening skills, comprehensions skills and develop a sense of joy for reading.
Outdoor Play/Indoor Play
Children are encouraged to socialize with their peers and develop their creativity through outdoor play. We will provide equipment which includes swings, interlocking blocks, panels and posts to build, a sandbox, various balls and an art studio. If the weather doesn't permit, children will be able to play indoors. We will not go out for a lengthy time if it is raining, snowing or too cold. The staff will decide to limit outdoor play due to weather or safety concerns.
Restroom, Hand Washing, & Snack Time
Children can go to the restroom any time during the day. Teachers take all children to the restroom before snack, to make sure all hands are washed.
Snack time gives children an opportunity to talk together as a small group, have prayer, practice manners, share and participate in cleaning up. Nutritious snacks will be provided each day. There will be opportunities for the children to complete cooking recipes during some classes.
