OUR PROGRAM

We are a multi age program licensed for 36 children. 

The program consists of children who are 3, 4 and 5, 

the youngest being 3 years of age by September 1. 


Effective September 2015, Little Mountain Preschool 

will provide the following programs:


            3 - 4 year old classes (age 3 by September 1st)

Options:

Monday – Wednesday – Friday     9:00 – 1:00

Monday – Friday                            9:00 – 1:00


            4 - 5 year old class (age 4 by June 1st)

Monday – Friday                             9:00 – 1:00



 

During our school day, we encourage each child to have the opportunity to develop their skills by participating in daily activities that challenge them in ways that are developmentally appropriate.  

We create an atmosphere of trust, provide opportunities of discovery through the power of play, develop social skills, encourage creative and critical thinking and provide a classroom environment where it is safe for each child to make individual choices.  

In addition, much of the curriculum is "emergent" which means that the teachers have the flexibility to allow the children to direct and more deeply explore the topics that are presented at school and any ideas that the child might bring from home.

Each child is given many varied opportunities for working and learning through a play based curriculum.  We will provide your child with a positive, non-pressured, non-judgmental school atmosphere.  Each child will have the opportunity to explore, discover and enjoy in all of the educational objectives through their play. We focus on the developmental needs of all children and structure our environment with respect to each child’s learning style. Our school, inside and out, is rich in materials that allow young children to grow physically, intellectually and emotionally. 

Our foremost goal is to provide a preschool experience that prepares children for future success, both in school and in life, by showing them how to solve problems, get along with others and be competent and responsible individuals.
