Preschool I is the Bumblebee class. Children who are 2.9 years old by September 30th of the new school year are eligible for enrollment in this two or three day program. There are 3 day 3's offered M/W/F for 3.3-3.11 year olds or 2 day T/Th morning for 2.9-3.3 year olds. The afternoon program is offered 2-3 days for 3.4-4.11 year olds T/W/Th.  We do not require that your child is potty trained to attend these classes.  We believe this is a developmental process and will happen on their time, not ours.  Classes for 3-year-olds are limited to 12 children. There are two adults working with the children; a teacher and an assistant. Children in Preschool I work toward the following goals:
  • Separation from home
  • Comfort within a group
  • Cooperative play habits
  • Taking care of personal needs
  • Improving small and large muscle coordination
  • Enhancing language skills to express feeling, needs and ideas
  • Introduction to color, shapes and number concepts through open ended activities
  • Games, music, stories, cooking and many other activities to provide a secure, well-rounded program
