Hunt’s Church Preschool’s ultimate goal is to prepare your child for the next level of education at the school of your choice. We do this by providing a dynamic, integrated curriculum that nurtures and builds upon your child’s natural curiosity and love of learning.
The focus of the two-year old program is to help your child learn the appropriate social skills that will carry them through the preschool program, as well as, their life. They will learn to get along with their peers and teachers through outside play, circle time, activity time and teacher supervised free play. Your child will learn basic academics, such as, colors, shapes, and simple counting. They learn to use small and large motor skills through art activities and music and movement. Following directions, learning the school routine and socializing with their classmates is a large part of the two-year-old program.
All of this is accomplished with a 6:1 teacher ratio.
The three-year-old class builds on the concepts and skills already learned. They continue to follow directions, articulate needs in an appropriate manner, display self-control and participate in larger group activities.Through games and activities in smaller groups they continue to learn basic math and science concepts and are introduced to letters and their sounds. Their small motor skills are expanded upon by the use of scissors and tracing.
We have a 9:1 teacher ratio in this class.
School readiness is the main objective of the four-year-old class. This involves both social and academic development. The children learn to be responsible for their own belongings, follow directions and listen to the teacher in a larger group setting and exhibit good self-control. Academically early reading skills, such as, phonemic awareness, recalling details of a story, and sequencing events are emphasized. Beginning math skills include, recognizing numerals 1-10, matching numerals and quantities, making patterns and putting objects in small to large order. The children learn all of these readiness skills through games and activities in small groups.
All of this is accomplished with a 8:1 teacher ratio.
