Preschool Room

(Ages 33 months to School Age)

This age is a wonderful time for making friends and learning skills through play.  Our morning starts with breakfast, followed by a  daily circle time that includes calendar, stories, and songs. The preschool room is set up with a variety of play centers including arts and crafts, blocks, construction, dramatic play, music, science, and a cozy corner with books.  We also have fine motor activities with manipulative toys such as Legos, dinosaurs, farm animals, puzzles, matching games, trains and race tracks to name a few.

We use the Creative Curriculum which focuses on developing Social and Emotional skills to help children adjust to new situations, as well as practice learning skills for group activities and playing with others.  As we Play, Learn and Grow Together, children begin to understand how to follow a classroom routine and participate in a wide variety of activities each day.

Physical exercise and time outdoors is an important part of our preschool experience.  We have easy access to our play yard right outside our door, and we are on the same block as Sylvan Park.  We take walks on the Root River Trail, explore our neighborhood and visit the Lanesboro Public Library.   Now that we are in our new location, we are next to the Elementary Gym and Indoor Playground for additional opportunities for movement and fun!
