Curriculum & Activities

In our Preschool classrooms we have a wide variety of learning opportunities for children. Guided by the Tennessee Early Learning Standards, classrooms are center-based so children have opportunities to participate in math, language, science, writing, music, art, and dramatic play. We use the “Handwriting Without Tears” program to help children learn letter recognition and formation. “Zoo-Phonics” uses letter sounds and gross motor skills to help bring phonics to life. Music class, Creative Connections (gross motor development), STEAM labs,  in-house field trips, and guest speakers help enhance your child’s learning experience.


Favorite preschool activities include Farm Day, Barnyard Music Day, Thanksgiving Feasts, Christmas Program, Father’s/Grandfather's Day celebration, Mother’s/Grandmother’s Day celebration, and Open Playground Days in the summer.
