Curriculum

The curriculum is designed to be hands-on and developmentally appropriate.  Our monthly newsletter will give a schedule of activities and themes each month for parents to be aware of their child's activity.  Each theme is chosen to encourage children to discover, imagine, and expand their knowledge in the following areas:

Judi and the class Academics:  Individual challenges will be provided for each child in a stimulating learning environment with abundant praise and encouragement.
Spiritual:  Children will be taught that God is our heavenly Father through praise and prayer.  We focus on the Golden Rule with emphasis on respect for self and others.
Social/Emotional:  Through interaction with other preschoolers, children will be taught the value of friendship, love, sharing, and self-control.  Attention is given to language development by providing varied opportunities for children to express their thoughts and ideas.
Physical Development:  Opportunities are provided to enhance motor skills with table and physical activities, both structured and non-structured.  We encourage independence by giving children opportunities to do things for themselves.

Schedule

The preschool year begins September, and ends in May.  We follow the Greece School District calendar regarding holidays, vacations, and school closings.  A detailed calendar will be sent with your registration confirmation.  The weekly session class times for the three year-olds and four/five year-olds are as follows:

Once a week children will be given the opportunity to share or bring something from home.  We encourage parents to help their child choose interesting and special items from home.  (No weapons or action figures, please.)

Field Trips

Field trips will be arranged to coincide with various unit themes throughout the school year.  Parents will be given prior notice of field trips.  On field trip days, there will be no class, and the children will meet at the location of the field trip.  Parents may decide on their own to car pool.

Facility Use

The main classroom is located on the main floor of the church.  The multi-purpose room on the lower level will be used for large motor skills development.  Opportunities for outside play will occur as weather permits.  New Day Christian Preschool has met all of the requirements necessary to operate in the Town of Greece.
