Preschool Program

Philosophy

The Marinwood Community Center's preschool programs provide a safe and simulating place for children to come for their first school experiences. Our class sizes are small so that we can be available to support the children as they learn to treat one another with gentleness and respect. To stimulate the children's minds and imaginations, we have an unusually large number of delightfully interesting materials for the children to explore each day. New toys and materials are periodically added to our activity cupboards so that we may also select according to the individual interests of our new students. 

Morning School for four year olds

Similar in structure to our other morning preschool classes, this program is designed to offer additional stimulation to the older preschool child. Class activities revolve around weekly themes. Arts and craft projects, music, story-time, science and outdoor adventures will make this time of learning and playing something to remember. This class is limited to 16 children with two teachers.

Pre-K Morning Sessions

Optional Addition for Morning School students

During this early-morning class we will work with the children in greater depth to cover the skills that will help them as they make the transition into kindergarten. Skills included are writing names, letter and number recognition, counting, rhyming, shape and color identification, cutting with scissors and following directions using a variety of games and worksheets. 

 

Threes Together for three year olds

This class is a next-step preschool experience with slightly longer hours, a class size of 12 with two teachers, and a little more structure than is found in the Parent/Toddler class. Three Together will offer children indoor and outdoor play time, arts and crafts, story-time, a daily snack, and a musical circle.

Parent/Toddler Class for two and three year olds with parent

All two year olds are invited to bring a parent and come to school. The two of you may choose to make friends, explore some wonderful new toys, create a work of art or just sit back and watch fellow students "at work". Your class time will also include a movement and singing circle. Children must be two by September 1 to enroll in this class for September through June.
