Our preschool program is focused on giving preschoolers, ages 31 months and up until entering Kindergarten, personal attention and creating a social environment where they can interact and grow with each other.
The preschool area at the CDC consists of three rooms where the preschoolers learn, play, and explore. Each room has its own theme with a number of different activities for the students to choose from including books, science activities, crafts, puzzles, toys, and more.
Our activities rotate often, giving preschoolers new ways of interacting and learning.
Just outside our building is a newly-renovated playground where kids get to have big-muscle play and enjoy the fresh air. We use the playground each day as the weather allows.
Each week, our group time lessons follow a specific theme or topic. Most of these themes come from a literacy-based curriculum called Doors to Discovery. Other weeks follow themes created by the teachers. The curriculum helps children grow in the following developmental skill areas: social, emotional, language, literacy, approaches to learning, creativity, arts, cognitive, physical, and motor.
