Guided Discovery Preschool
Using the researched Based "Mother Goose Time Curriculum" as well as working with area school teachers, our preschool teachers are teaching valuable skills needed to get students ready for kindergarten! This program is for children 3-5 years old and potty trained. We focus on skills such as writing names, reciting address and phone number, recognizing shapes, and colors, counting and much much more! We utilize the pool, gym, and patio for large motor play. The class will go on local field trips, then take a bigger trip in May. We also have many guest speakers throughout the school year. This program is licensed through Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services.
