Chai Tots Preschool

Our comprehensive and developmentally-appropriate program is designed to promote each child’s intellectual, social, physical and emotional growth. All games and activities are skill-based and goal oriented, so that the children grow with everything that they do.

The curriculum at our school is based on age-appropriate accepted practice. The classroom set up consists of exciting learning centers to appeal to children; this includes blocks, art, dramatic play, books, manipulatives, and scientific discovery. These centers allow the children to have choices and to actively explore on their own terms. They learn by interacting with their peers, teachers, and the varying changes in their environment. Each center has a specific aim and with the teacher’s guidance, this helps the children’s emotional, cognitive, and physical growth.

The daily schedule is planned to include active and quiet times, gross and fine motor activities, and child-initiated, as well as staff-initiated activities. Outdoor (weather permitting) or indoor play is scheduled each day. Planning for the classroom involves consideration of the age appropriateness for the group and individual aptness for each child. Being cognizant that every child learns differently, we use various mediums to teach each lesson. Children’s interests are explored through inquiry and research methods.

Assessment is also an important part of the curriculum. A portfolio for each child contains developmental checklists, work samples, and anecdotal records. Our goal is to ensure that children reach their individual potential.

We integrate an emergent curriculum approach into a thematic approach to create a synthesis of programs including the best guided and individualized educational opportunities.
