The Child of God Preschool offers the following half-day classes for children 2 1/2 to 5 years of age:
2-Day Class for 2 1/2 - 4 Year-Olds (M/W or T/TH)('OA' & 'OB'- Ocean Room Classes A & B) This is our introductory preschool classroom for those children who only desire a two-day per week program. The children in these classes focus on developing social skills, increasing vocabulary, following the routine and transitions, and learning how to problem-solve. These classes will begin to focus on alphabet recognition and name writing as the children are individually ready. They have circle time with some structure and complexity to increase the children's attention span.
3-Day Class for 4 - 5 Year-Olds (T/W/TH)('G' - Garden Room) This is a pre-K classroom for 4 to 5 year-olds; however, upon request, we will allow an older 3- year-old to join this class if they desire a three-day per week program. In this classroom, the teacher's lesson plans incorporate the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) pre-K Standards to help prepare the children for kindergarten. More emphasis is placed on alphabet and number recognition, counting, sorting, and writing. All of these skills are taught through hands-on activities where children are engaged and having fun instead of just listening to the teacher. More in-depth social skills and problem solving skills are reinforced so children will be prepared to enter elementary school.The children are taught to work through their problems with each other as their social skills increase. They learn concepts that will last a lifetime. The Garden Room is able to offer an afternoon class for the 2017-2018 school year.
4-Day Class for 4 - 5 Year-Olds (M-TH) ('R' - Rainbow Room) This is also a pre-K classroom for 4-5 year olds, and is a great option for those children who need an extra year of preschool. In this classroom, the teachers' lesson plans incorporate the ODE Pre-K Standards to help prepare the children for kindergarten. There is more emphasis on problem- solving skills involving math and science, and more practice with writing. Again, all of these skills are taught through hands-on activities and much teacher/child interaction. The children are taught to work through their problems with each other as their social skills increase. They learn concepts that will last a lifetime.
