Preschool and Pre-K
2.9 years – 6 years
Preschoolers need a curriculum that helps them develop their love of learning, as well as the support of caring teachers . Using a theme-based approach, our preschool teachers introduce the children to STEM topics, language, art, and social science. Our curriculum fosters curiosity, independence, and self-confidence.
At Inch By Inch, our Preschool Program consists of three groups: Jr/Preschool 1 for our youngest Preschoolers just transitioning from toddlers; Preschool 2 for our confident 3 ½ to 4 year-olds; and Pre-K for children preparing to enter kindergarten. Each classroom reflects the social, emotional, and educational needs of these age groups. These spacious rooms provide ample space for the children to explore and grow. Our smaller group size of 1:8 ensures the teachers will meet the individual needs of each child.
Each classroom participates daily in both large and small group activities, including circle time. Weekly themes emphasize literacy and math skills. The preschool 2 and Pre-K classes use the Handwriting Without Tears program to develop and master upper and lower case handwriting. Pre-K also uses the Primary Phonics program to become emerging readers by the time they enter kindergarten. During circle time, children hear stories that encourage creative as wells as critical thinking skills. Areas of the classroom include: blocks/manipulatives, art, dramatic play, and sensory. The preschool and Pre-K classes have their own dedicated playground. Indoors, each class has use of the gym for gross motor play.
