A day in preschool involves lots of dancing and singing. The students learn how to sing our ABC’s, days of the week, and even the months of the year. We count daily by clapping our hands or exercising as we count to 100. They sing to please God by learning fun songs that keep us moving. Your child will develop fine motor skills in coloring, tracing, cutting with scissors and using a variety of materials during art classes. There are social interactions as we make new friends who enjoy the things we do. Emotions are huge at this stage of our development, and we learn to use the appropriate words and actions not to hurt our friends’ feelings or bodies.
There is so much to learn, so much to do, and so much to explore in the preschool classroom. The curriculum is based on the students’ needs year to year. So, each year may be different from the previous years since each student is unique. The children learn Social/Emotional skills leading to a goal of sitting quietly, using their manners, minds and hearts by the end of the school year. If they know some of the letters and numbers, it is an added bonus. Come join the fun at St. Mary/McCormick Catholic Academy!
