“I never teach my pupils, I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can
― Albert Einstein
Gresham Heights Learning Center pre-school programs will prepare your child for kindergarten success and beyond. We have committed ourselves to work with families to provide a loving, stimulating environment that will make our students' childhood enjoyable.
We have established a daily routine and curriculum to help prepare them for the school environment that will soon be in their future. We put a focus on their cognitive, social, language, writing, math and science skills, and begin to work on learning letters and numbers. These skills are introduced in fun ways that get the children involved and interested. Gross motor skills and outside sensory play (weather permitting) are done on our large playground which is located behind our building and provides a safe environment for the children to run, jump, ride big wheels and just be a kid!
Our staff encourages our pre-schoolers to play independently as well as including others in their play. We listen to and respond to their feelings. We read them lots of stories and encourage their imaginative play. We provide sensitive support, safety and protection, and help them develop trust in other consistent adults.
We use positive words to set limits consistently, firmly and fairly. We encourage their curiosity and small discoveries, and help them with simple problem solving. Most of all, we enjoy these little ones and our staff has amazing patience in working with them.
