Preschool (3-5 years old)
Bright, cheerful and designed to encourage investigation and exploration through play, the preschool classrooms at Lit’l Scholars Learning Centers are ideal for children who are getting ready to attend kindergarten.
Our preschool programs allow kids to experiment and learn through a range of developmentally appropriate activities. Our goals are to help preschoolers develop a lifelong excitement about learning and to provide them with the foundational skills they need for success in elementary school and beyond.
At Lit’l Scholars Learning Centers, we strongly believe in the value and importance of learning through quality preschool play experiences. Sharing and interacting with others encourages language development and nourishes creativity. And through play, preschoolers learn how to socialize and solve problems.
At the same time, we also believe that preschoolers need a structured day that includes both free play and teacher-led learning activities. We utilize the We Can! Curriculum, and our experienced preschool teachers spend time planning fun interactive experiences that encourage social, emotional and cognitive growth.
Preschoolers in our care enjoy child-friendly meals and snacks that are wholesome and nutritious. And, our preschool programs provide kids with plenty of opportunities for physical activity, both inside and outside the classroom.
Programs for Preschoolers
The preschool teachers at Lit’l Scholars Learning Centers understand what kids need to know to be ready for kindergarten. These crucial pre-reading, pre-math and social-emotional skills are the focus of both of our preschool programs. And, we track each child’s progress to enable us to better meet their learning needs.
We have two separate preschool classes – one for younger preschoolers and one that includes pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students.
Our Fantastic Fours class – which is for both preschool-ready three-year-olds and four-year-olds – employs repetition, practice and positive reinforcement to help kids develop emergent skills in literacy, language, mathematics, science and the arts. The day is structured, and preschoolers have ample opportunities to play at fun and educational interest centers.
Five-year-olds who are getting ready for kindergarten and those already in school can join our Fabulous Fives class. In this preschool program, kids take part in student- and teacher-led activities designed to help them excel in elementary school. We provide transportation for children in half-day and full-day kindergarten at several local schools, and we allow them to play, socialize and unwind in a fun and positive environment.
