A,E,I,O,U and sometimes, why
It’s probably a preschooler’s favorite question. Sometimes “Why?” comes at a difficult moment (like after “Please finish your vegetables”), but often they ask because they really do want to know how the world works.
At SoaringStart, we know preschoolers. We know a multi-sensory approach can help them learn concepts, so we sing songs and use visual cues to teach skills; we know their imaginations are constantly sparking with ideas, so our librarian gives them a chance to be a part of the storytelling; we know that with their innate curiosity and knack for observation they are born scientists, so we let them explore the natural world through hands-on projects brought to the classroom from our Science Lab. We also know that it’s never too early to learn that God loves us, so time is set aside each day to pray for each other and learn more about our Creator.
With a balance of self- and teacher-directed learning activities, students learn topics in core subject areas like Math, Language Arts, Christian Studies, Science and Social Studies, with additional opportunities in Art, Music, Physical Education and more. Just as it is in elementary school, information is presented with a thematic approach: when learning about France during International Week, for example, preschoolers taste French foods, paint with watercolors after learning about Monet, count to 10 in French and get a lesson on the Eiffel Tower.
Preschool should be a fun, stimulating, safe and nurturing introduction to school, a time that sets the stage for a lifetime love of learning. At SoaringStart Preschool, we begin with the end in mind, so students receive a great education while developing as children and receiving the kind of encouragement that gets them excited for school each day. They come to us with the “why?” and we give them the tools to find the answer.
