Our Preschool Program

Welcome to our class website.  Here you will find information such as our daily schedule, a calendar of special events, and helpful links.

It is our goal to provide a comprehensive preschool experience...

          The Child –

This preschool experience encourages each child, to think, reason, question, solve problems, and experiment.  Children are encouraged to make choices and display independence.  Each child’s intellectual and physical development is fostered with a variety of approaches that reflects the needs of the child.

 The Family –

We recognize the vital role of family in the learning opportunities for preschool children.  Parents are supported as they meet the basic needs of their children for safety, food, emotional support, and health care.  Developing partnerships with families includes communicating about preschool, supporting family needs, and connecting families to their communities.

 The Classroom –

The classroom provides an environment rich with learning resources and a professional teaching staff.  This preschool classroom curriculum is designed with developmentally appropriate instructional strategies, activities, and materials.  We provide  a balance that includes cognitive, social, language development, physical, creative, and routine activities.

As with all material found on the Internet, teachers and parents should be very careful in allowing students to explore these sites unless direct supervision is provided. Waterman Elementary is not responsible for the content of various links beyond the initial levels of each site.
