Creative Play Station works hard to stay posted on the most up-to-date teaching methods. We are currently updating our curriculum with Rewiring the Brain literacy program. We maintain basic methods that we believe nurture children’s learning. Our goal is to prepare your preschooler with the skills necessary for kindergarten. It is well balanced with academics, physical, social and spiritual activities. Our methods are exemplified in the activities we do with the children. We offer a wide variety of activities and experiences. Our program is individualized to the development of your 3-5 year old. Our curriculum provides the following:
CountingComputer Teaching Language Dev. Creative Movement Indoor/Outdoor play Phonics Reading Readiness Tiny Tumblers
Sensory related activities (smell, sight, feel)
We like children to learn by doing things themselves and provide them with an endless amount of enthusiasm as well as tools to explore with. Our preschool is filled with toys, games, music, puzzles, books and computers.
