Preschool Curriculum

Our preschool curriculum at Countryside Child Care Center has been specifically designed to prepare all our children for their futures starting from preschool all the way through their lives. Our highly qualified teachers at Countryside Child Care Center make a lifelong commitment of teaching and learning from each other as well as from our children. We emphasize our program by using the children’s background knowledge and building their thinking skills to obtain their highest learning potential.

Being that every child has their own individual learning style we have incorporated many ways to teach our curriculum. The areas we base our curriculum on are: math, music, science, language, phonics, art and social studies. We teach our curriculum through literature, using both oral and visual communication as well as dictation as the children develop listening and speaking skills; songs and finger plays; writing; counting; sensory skills; and most importantly our one on one interactions with the children.

We promote sharing/taking turns with our peers; using our manners; and gaining some independence using our self help skills throughout our daily routine. We achieve these goals in many ways, whether it is working together in groups to solve problems or working/playing independently by using our cognitive and social skills.

Countryside Child Care Center is designed to create a learning environment that is safe, nurturing, educational and most of all fun for all the children that spend their days with us.
