Preschool Students

At Reid Preschool, our teaching methods are divided into two preschool levels:

  1. Early Preschool or Parent-and-Infant Program
  2. Preschool Program

Each of these programs is designed to fit the unique needs of the children in them.  To ensure that our instructional methods are appropriate for the grade level, we place children based on their age.  We can help you better understand the programs that we have to offer by meeting in person or discussing over the phone.

Early Preschool Program

Also referred to as “Enriching a Child’s Literacy Environment” (ECLE), our Early Preschool Program is designed for children between the ages of 6 months and 36 months.  The program is offered to both parents and children, thus allowing for parents to work with their children at home while the children are simultaneously taught in the classroom.

There are 8 major divisions in the Early Preschool Program.

Activities geared toward:

  • increasing large-muscle coordination
  • increasing small-muscle coordination
  • sensory stimulation and oral language
  • phonemic awareness and reading preparedness
  • poetry and children’s literature
  • number alertness
  • concept development
  • music and rhythmic movements

Preschool Program

The Preschool Program is designed for children ages 3-5, and it continues to build upon the core developments that were introduced in the Early Preschool Program.  Parents of children in our Preschool Program are regularly invited to join us in the classroom to observe curricular activities and enjoy our musical and dramatic programs.

In the Preschool Program, we will focus on strengthening:

  • Oral language development
  • Genre recognition
  • Fitness activities, i.e. pre-tumbling and animal walks
  • Beginning reading and handwriting skills

To help in the child’s development during the preschool years, we utilize sensory stimulation activities such as poetry, music, and creative arts.  We also implement arithmetic programs intended to help children think in new ways and prompt further social development.
