In preschool we provide a program developmentally appropriate for three- and four-year-olds with emphasis on hands-on learning opportunities designed to enhance development in all areas: moral, social-emotional, intellectual, artistic, and physical. Skilled, nurturing teachers support the children in the development of their socialization skills and in their quest to learn about the world. Cozy, home-like classrooms and spacious outdoor grounds offer a wide variety of play opportunities. We recognize each child as a unique individual engaged in the process of learning, and our dedicated teachers seek to fully support this individual growth. Since children learn best from doing, our curriculum is organized to allow for hands-on experiences with a rich variety of materials. We believe that the arts and language are integral to a child’s creative and intellectual growth, and offer special classes in music, movement, and Spanish. A multitude of art projects are created in the classrooms, using various mediums such as paints, textiles, and natural materials. Preschoolers enthusiastically participate in Arts Month, the Science Fair, and always look forward to seeing their grade school friends during Buddy Reading time. Each preschool class puts on an annual class performance amidst numerous additional opportunities for even the youngest children to be onstage. Our campus environment is clean, well-maintained, and fun, a place where children feel physically safe and emotionally secure. Loving teachers’ establish a relaxed, friendly routine to ease the separation process between child and parent, and they help children experience success in interactions with their peers and other adults as they are guided in the process of socialization. Parent involvement is strongly encouraged, and we believe in ongoing communication between home and school. At Monica Ros School, children’s creativity is fostered and they are cherished and loved during this impressionable time of discovery in their young lives.
