    General Preschool Information

     

    • There are 20 preschool students in the program.

    • Preschoolers must be potty independent and three (3) years of age by October 1 the year they enter preschool

    • The Preschool follows the LCPS calendar but starts in mid-October and ends in late May.  We are closed for snow days, student holidays, teacher work days, and other special closings.

    • The preschool is a class for high school students called Early Childhood Education.  Each high school student is paired with a preschool student (or two).  The high school students run the preschool under the supervision of their teacher. 

    • This is a learning experience for our high school students.  The preschool is their "learning lab."  We aim for a mutually beneficial relationship - the high school students are learning to care for and teach children while building relationships, and the preschool students are gaining age and developmentally appropriate instruction.  The high school students are "in training." They are not trained professionals.

    • We follow a theme based curriculum in preschool.  The high school students plan the lessons and activities.  Each lesson/activity stresses at least one of the LCPS Kindergarten Readiness Skills.
