OUR PRESCHOOL PROGRAMS

OVERVIEW

Age as of September 1 determines placement:


Toddlers (9-23 months) Ratio: 5:1

The class for these young children is based on the importance of a loving, secure environment where the child can have his or her first interaction with caregivers outside the home. A first experience with peers is also an important adjustment for the young child. Small groups, well-planned activities, and loving adults make this class a wonderful first experience for the 12 to 23 month old.

Boy Playing with Blocks

TWOS (18-36 MONTHS) RATIO: 6:1

Often this is the age when most children have their first opportunity to spend extended time away from home. It is their first chance to make new friends and learn new things. Our classes are small so personal attention is possible and individual needs can be met. Learning to be part of a group, sharing, taking turns, and following directions are fundamental learning skills that begin in this age group.



Threes (Three-year-olds) Ratio: 7:1

Children at this age are active, willing learners who look at everything around them in a curious light. Our curriculum covers personal, social, and emotional development, communication skills, language and literacy, mathematical development, knowledge and understanding of the world, and physical and creative development.

Pre-K (Four to Five-year-olds) Ratio 8:1

The Pre-Kindergarten program at ACEC is age-appropriate, offering the child an opportunity to grow as an individual and begin to cultivate a life-long enthusiasm for learning. The curriculum is integrated through a multisensory approach to encourage children to be active participants in their learning.

The learning environment is center-based, giving children the opportunity to explore and make choices. It fosters their abilities to think independently, logically, and creatively. The program encourages children to be responsible members of the class by learning to share and care for materials. Literacy development is encouraged through phonics development, rhyming, and games. They are encouraged to express themselves through drawing and writing. The mathematics curriculum is designed so students can develop number sense, sort and count, describe shapes, and create patterns.


In all of our classes, each child’s individual differences in growth and development are always recognized and accepted.
Each one’s unique personality and learning style is considered at all times.
