Dayspring Christian Preschool
TIME TO REGISTER FOR 2017-2018 SCHOOL YEAR!
At Dayspring Christian Preschool, our mission is to partner with families to create a Christ-centered environment that nurtures a love for learning in each child. Our program is grounded in Christian values, and strives to give each child a warm, safe and secure environment in which he or she will develop socialization skills, independence and a positive self image.
- Social Emotional: To help children develop independence, self control, follow rules and routines, make frineds and learn what it means to be a part of a group. To help young children acquire language to express their feelings and make their needs known.
- Physical: To increase children's large muscle skills such as balancing, running, jumping, throwing and catching. To use the small muscles in their hands to do tasks like buttoning, stringing beads, cutting, drawing and writing.
- Cognitive: To acquire thinking skills such as the ability to solve problems, to predict, to ask questions, and to draw conclusions. This is done by sorting, classifying, comparing, counting, making patterns, and by using materials and their imagination to show what they have learned.
- Language: To use words to communicate with others. To listen and participate in conversation with others. Reading is an essential key in the development of language. Building blocks for reading include sense of story, rhyming, retelling stories and conversation. These activities help children notice the sound and structure of words, laying a foundation for reading. Literacy is integrated into all facets of the curriculum.
