Our developmental preschool runs 9:00-11:30 daily. We offer extended care 6:30 am to 6:30 pm . Our preschool program is based on kindergarten readiness. Children explore the classroom, participating in hands on activities in the math/manipulative , writing/language, art , sensory, science, cooking, pretend play and other learning centers. We work with local elementary schools to assure that our curriculum complies with school readiness expectations. Parent teacher conferences are offered as part of our ongoing, excellent parent communication. At Braithburn, learning is fun. During choice time, children independently choose learning center activities. During class meetings, they read stories, sing songs, do finger plays and learn concepts relevant to the monthly theme. Parents are always welcome to visit. Favorite family events are the Thanksgiving feast, our holiday program, potlucks and preschool graduation. Our teachers help build a solid foundation for learning. Our goal is for children to love school.
