Prior to your child's start date, and typically during our enrollment meeting with your family, we will discuss what to expect in our preschool classroom. You'll receive communication electronically that includes meals, potty, outdoor time, daily progress and so much more in real time. This classroom is for children ages 4-school age.
Children will be warmly greeted to prepare them for an exciting day ahead! Preschoolers enjoy circle time, story time, snacks and lunch, playtime, outside time and SO much more while parents are away.
Please make sure your child has breakfast prior to drop off. Our snack time is roughly between 9-9:30am
We utilize HighScope Curriculum, one of the most widely used preschool curriculums in our nation. Their foundation helps us create a high learning environment that is engaging, making children experiences not only intentional but meaningful and fun. Our program promotes social-emotional development as it supports all children. Children develop strong skills in a progressive, educational and social setting with fun filled themes. The structure is content rich and evident with a focus on 10 areas of development and learning. We emphasize cognitive learning, including number and letter recognition introduced through puzzles, games, math problems, science projects and writing skills.
We know the best way to help children succeed is to teach them to be creative and confident thinkers. With a research based, comprehensive curriculum in a small setting, our teachers can create a high quality, fun and engaging environment.
We are SO excited to SOON be able to offer this amazing music enrichment for ALL of our classrooms. Every classroom, from infants to preschool, our children will have a specialized music class from Music Together in Elmhurst. There will be weekly additional fee for you child's class with a certified instructor. We know children will develop a love for music that can be nurtured indefinitely.
Since we spend 90% of our time indoors, indoor air quality is an essential and integral part of a healthy environment. Like the rest of our childcare center, our Preschool classroom room is equipped by Community Playthings. We selected Community Playthings for many reasons, most importantly, we feel they have the highest quality, safest design and are the only childcare furniture that are LEED certified. With our goal of the highest safety standards and bringing a more natural environment into our classrooms, this was an easy decision. You'll see natural branches utilized to hang art work and decorations. Our toys are Eco friendly wherever possible and our crayons and markers are either Eco friendly, organic or both. We provide organic blankets for all children during rest/naptime as well. This classroom also has its own Bathroom for children only.
Elmhurst Premier's Preschool classroom offers a range of activities that stimulate children's group and individual love of learning while developing friendships throughout the way.
Children are introduced to reading, writing, basic Spanish and all of our individual and group activities help children explore new friendships and their individuality as they gain their educational and foundational skills. We engage our children in how we can make a positive impact with nutrition, self help skills, accountability, empathy, manners and problem solving.
