• Dear Pre-School Parents,
    Welcome to Heywood Ave.Pre-school! We are looking forward to getting to know you and your child. In this class, we will work on self-help skills, small and large motor skills, letter and number recognition, communication, and several other cognitive and social skills. We will cover these areas using a variety of methods to ensure that learning is always fun and interesting for your child. Our classroom is theme based, meaning every few weeks there is a subject and every day we discuss a different topic pertaining to that subject.We will integrate this theme into most activities throughout the day.The Preschool classroom is divided into several areas: Dramatic Play, Block, Art and Writing, Science,Table Toys, and a quiet Reading area. During 'WorkTime' the children may choose the area in which they want to play. They may switch areas at any time. The children learn to keep toys in their areas, pick up after themselves, share and respect each other, and work together. Parent-teacher conferences are held in the spring of each year.This is a good time to meet with the teachers and go over developmental skills necessary for success in preschool and to find out how your child is progressing. We have an open door policy so you are welcome whenever you want to.
