Aldersgate Preschool and Discovery Day programs follow a curriculum designed to meet the needs, interests and developmental levels of children. We endeavor to foster each child's growth in the following skill areas:
is nurtured through activities and expectations that promote the development of a positive self-image and increased self discipline and social skills required for positive interaction with peers and adults.
is enhanced through witnessing adults conducting themselves in a compassionate, loving and generous manner with every child, parent and co-worker. Children will be introduced to general Christian concepts through prayer, story and song.
is developed through various opportunities for children to have fun with language and to practice verbal skills. Children are encouraged to participate in stories, songs, finger plays, personal interactions and drama.
is encouraged through activities which promote both large and fine motor coordination. The facility is designed to provide ample space for freedom of movement and the curriculum provides a balance of periods for both quiet and active play.
is stimulated by an environment rich in materials that are developmentally appropriate and stimulating. Activities and various centers are developed in order to promote curiosity and creativity according to the individual abilities and readiness of each child.
Self Help/School Readiness Growth
