Phelps Playschool is an educational, play-based preschool. In order to run a program exclusively catered to preschool age children, we accept ages 12 months- 5 years. We use a developmentally appropriate curriculum that is based on an understanding of children's individual interests and their current developmental needs.
-Language & Literacy experiences support word development and pre literacy skills with circle time and story time.
-Children develop early math shills by counting, measuring, sorting, comparing, and classifying with hands on activities.
-With both independent and structured exploration of art materials, children learn creativity & expression.
-Fine Motor skills are developed through the use of manipulatives, sensory experiences, practical life and intentionally planned activities catered to a child's current skill level.
-Science & social studies activities help children learn about their community and the world around them.
-children's social development is gained through social interactions, following directions, taking turns, conversation, group speaking, and cooperation.
