Pictures show only a portion of the preschool. The preschool's approximate location is Harmony and Timberline in Fort Collins. I have had many years of preschool experience with my own preschool as well as a center based preschool, 28 credits of early childhood education in college, hundreds of hours of ongoing early childhood training including special needs training, and literally thousands of hours working with children with special needs.
A preschool for children ages 16 months (if ready) and older. (I will take children in diapers) Located behind Cinemark Theater on Harmony and Timberline.
Part time openings: 4 hour sessions running from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. If you need full time care and would still like to enjoy the benefits of preschool for your child, transportation will be provided to a provider in my neighborhood if they have openings and enroll your child.
A child may attend one to five days, depending on openings. I will take children as young as 16 months of age, if they are ready. I keep my rates low.
Preschool is held year around. (Summer optional) I will hold their position for the fall session. I only take 8 children per session (+one school age child) so the children have more one-on-one attention.
I have never had a report against me which according to Social Services is extremely rare. You can go to http://www.colorado.gov/apps/cdhs/childcare/lookup/index.jsf to see my record.
The preschool has a large play area with toys galore and various play equipment, which includes a big wooden play house and a large ball pit.
The curriculum includes: math, science, art, music, language, history and lots of large/fine motor and tactile experiences all taught at the child's level and in a fun way. Many of the activities center on the letters, numbers, shapes, colors, community workers, famous people in history, and monthly themes we are learning about.
A session consists of: center time, (children play with toys in different centers such as science center, math, manipulative's, etc.) circle time, (calendar, weather charting SIGN LANGUAGE, review of letters, numbers, shapes and colors we've been learning about) snack time, preschool lesson (a lesson and/or stations) and then outdoor time or tumbling time. Most children, by time they move on to kindergarten, have learned between 500-800 sign language vocabulary words, many advanced colors and shapes, they are counting by 2's, 5's and 10's, they know basic fractions, how to tell time, money recognition and the value of each coin, know 25-50 sight words, and are reading 3 to 7 letter words.
I can give many references.
