The feeling of comfort, the feeling of friends, the feeling of family. That’s what you’ll get when you enter ABC Express Preschool. We take the time to get to know our families on a personal level, so that you feel comfortable leaving your child with us each day. Our warm home-like environment provides your child an easy transition from your home to their preschool home.
We want your child to feel confident being away from you for the day as much as you do. From the beginning, you will notice the same teachers on hand to welcome you children each morning and afternoon. These teachers are the ones who will have snack, class, lunch and nap time with your children. This constancy provides children with the security they need to bond with their teachers on an individual level.
Because we are a smaller facility, teachers are afforded the opportunity to communicate with parents daily. We are able to share stories and concerns face to face. We strive to keep our teacher to child ratio low so that each child gets the one to one attention they deserve. When you visit our preschool, you will see the carpeted floors, open rooms and the large enclosed play yard that will provide you with a familiar homey feel that your child is used to. Schedule a tour today and experience the difference for yourself.
While many childcare programs focus their attention on the mastery of letters and numbers, in recent years the trend has been to introduce more play, as it is essential for child development. It is very important to introduce relevant content in all aspects of play. This type of play stimulates all physical, social, emotional and cognitive development in the early years. Children need time, space, materials and the support of teachers to facilitate learning.
At ABC Express Preschool, we also believe that play is essential for our children’s growth and development. While our children do learn letters, colors, numbers, and shapes, the learning unfolds naturally through dramatic play, outdoor play, using blocks, chalk and plain old discovery. Important skills like vocabulary and communication are learned through daily conversations among children and teachers.
Play takes on many shapes and forms, therefore it also builds empathy and social skills.
It teaches children to work together and problem solve using both words and actions. When allowing children to have open ended play imaginations flourish and grow. Play also encourages gross and fine motor skills without constraints, as it allows the child to mature at their own pace. For these reasons and many more, you can see the importance play has in the development of a child’s early years.
From the first moment you enter ABC Express Preschool you will notice the difference.
Unlike most other preschools, as your child walks through our doors, they are immediately welcomed into a large, brightly colored, open playroom, filled with endless opportunity for free play. During this play period, children get the opportunity to interact with children of all ages before their specific class time begins.
As you wander from room to room, you will notice that each classroom is separated by ages and decorated by theme. Each teacher takes the time to create bulletin boards based on monthly themes and proudly displays student art work around their rooms. In their classrooms, most of our class time revolves around exploration and play so all classrooms have a generous amount of age appropriate manipulatives, books, art supplies, toys and activities.
When class time is over, its time for the students stretch their legs. Our children enjoy daily scheduled play time in our vast, shaded, outdoor play yard. Here students can participate in basketball, soccer and various teacher led games. In addition, there are many ride on toys, play houses and even a multi- level play set for climbing and sliding. Children also have the opportunity to explore the grass, mulch, sand and black top areas
