Class Structure

Each class focuses on five key areas: self esteem & positive self image, social interaction, self expression & communication skills, creative expression, and intellectual growth.

Each class session is divided into three areas: activity time, group time and variety time. Children learn basic skills and knowledge through weekly themed activities. Greendale Playschool offers low student to teacher ratios to maximize the child’s learning opportunity.

Activity Time offers the children an opportunity to choose their own activity. Choices include books, art, dramatic play, puzzles as well as a variety of large and small motor development activities. Children are encouraged to explore and ask about different science items displayed in the classroom. Emphasis is on cooperative play.

Group Time activities include songs, stories, finger-plays, conversation, language enrichment and snack time. At times, special guests may visit the class with presentations.

Variety Time may include outdoor play, games, activities to develop motor coordination, activities for letter and number awareness, language arts or science activities, walks or field trips.
