Building Blocks Preschool
All Current and Interested Families,
We are working on our 2014/15 Enrollment Information for Building Blocks. We are in the process of setting our fees and it is taking more time then we expected. Please know that we are doing everything we can to expedite the process. When it is complete, we will first email out the information to all current families, as well as to those new families who have given their email addresses to us through tours, or phoning in. We will also post the information here on the website and mail the information to your home. We appreciate your patience.
If your child is not, or was not, enrolled in our Winter 2014 or Spring 2014 quarter then you are considered a New Family and must use the form above. You can still turn in your forms now, but they will be processed after our returning families.
Block A: Parent & Child (Ages 1 – 2 years)
You and your child can explore preschool together in this first step of our building blocks program. The classes are a fun time to get your little one used to the idea of preschool with singing, sharing, and arts and crafts. The classes focus on:
- Reinforcing parents as teachers.
- Building socialization skills.
Block B: Friends & Me (Ages 2 – 3.3 years)
This class is for little ones who are ready to explore school on their own, but are not yet toilet-trained. Friends & Me focuses on:
- Exploration with a teacher.
- Fostering independence.
- Easing separation anxiety through self-fulfilling activities.
- Continued building of movement and social skills.
- Low ratio - five students per teacher.
Block C: Tiny Tots (Ages 3 – 4 years) - potty training required
This class is the next step after Friends and Me and is designed for toilet-trained children. It provides a vibrant and nurturing environment for your child to develop:
- Social and cognitive skills.
- Gross motor and fine motor skills.
- Pre-academic concepts such as the alphabet, colors, phonics and numbers.
Block D: Pre-Kindergarten (Ages 4 – 5 years)
This last program in our series and is designed as a transition to kindergarten. Pre-kindergarten focuses on:
- Continued development of social skills and building self esteem.
- Providing a more structured environment in preparation for kindergarten.
- Incorporating state recommended academic benchmarks.
- Creating a safe setting to develop age-appropriate skills.
