Environment and Development
The 3-year-old, 4-year-old, and Pre-K children in our Preschool program feel ready to take on the world!
At Interfaith Campus Preschool, our students are given activities in our Creative Curriculum that encourage hands-on interaction, independence, and problem-solving. This strategy allows them to develop necessary skills through interplay in the classroom as well as learning activities planned and implemented by the teacher.
Our teacher-to-child ratio is well below the Ohio mandate at 1 to 8, so your child is sure to receive frequent one-on-one attention to answer their many questions as they learn and grow. At this stage, we hope to encourage cognitive and language development, creative expression, as well as physical, emotional, and social development. Our wish is for every child to feel comfortable in our learning environment, and we aim to promote positive self-esteem through enthusiasm and sincere joy in teaching!
Here’s a peek at just a few of the every-day theories and skills we teach and/or encourage throughout the day:
- Number concepts and operations – we count how many friends are in class, how many red cups there are at snack time – the list is endless!
- Spatial relationships – ideas like up, down, under, on top, behind, in front, next to, etc.
- Patterning – through arts and crafts, we teach sequences and matching
- Physics – by building different ramps with blocks, we observe speed variability using cars, balls, wheels and other toys
- Wellness – spending time outside and on the playground, as well as healthy eating, is essential to our students bodily progression
