Early Childhood Education
THE CURRICULUM AND LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
Grand Preschool has adopted the We Can! Management System as the foundation for our classrooms – teaching in ways that match the way children develop and learn. The preschool day is comprised of whole group and small groups for explicit teaching of skills. Learning centers also provide opportunities for children to explore, experiment, discover, share, learn and practice newly acquired skills.
In keeping with Grand County School Board resolutions for the preschool day will include focus on pre-reading and early math activities. In addition, emphasis will be placed on the social/emotional, physical, intellectual, and language development of each child.
The preschool classrooms are designed to minimize behavioral challenges, as children are taught the classroom routines and expectations. If any serious behavior problems arise, the parent will be involved in determining needed interventions.
