Preschool & Pre-K

Preschool

Our Early Preschoolers Program (24 months to 35 months) uses a curriculum that encourages and nurtures your 2-year old’s natural sense of wonder and curiosity.  This program allows their natural desire to explore as a basis for turning every moment into an opportunity for learning and growth. 

We provide a fun environment to learn language skills through music, rhymes and stories every day.  We teach your 2-year old basic math and science by providing hands on activities that enhance their natural need to touch, smell, build and create through their curiosity of the world around them.  Our qualified, experienced teachers create a patient and supportive environment that allows your 2-year old to learn about themselves and begin to form relationships with others.  Your child will enjoy learning about different themes each month such as Community Helpers, Pets and Family, or even Dinosaurs.  Their classrooms will provide different opportunities for your child to learn through play as they are transformed to each theme, creating magical areas to explore and learn.  Our teachers also guide your child through activities that strengthen their motor skills that focuses on their small and large muscle groups.  This can be through finger plays, sensory activities, dance and exercise games throughout the day.  In addition, your child will participate in activities designed to help them understand trust, empathy and a sense of right and wrong through choices and positive reflection.

Our Preschooler Program (36 months to 47 months) uses a state-approved curriculum that provides your 3-year old with well-rounded learning experiences that focuses on the whole child and their development.  This is all set in an environment where your child will receive positive reinforcement through nurturing care and encouragement.   Literacy and language development is provided by multiple opportunities throughout the day to make connections between letters, words and sounds.  Our teachers use age-appropriate books as your child listens to and retells stories, asks questions and shares ideas. Language development is also strengthened through individual and small-group activities in our Dramatic Play and Library learning centers. 

Our caring teachers guide your 3-year old through small group activities such as creating matching sets of items and counting beads or blocks. This helps them build a foundation for math and solve simple problems. Identifying similarities and differences within a group of objects.  We put your 3-year old’s natural sense of wonder and curiosity to work by teaching them about people, plants, animals and our environment through hands-on activities.  The classroom learning centers are transformed by each monthly focus theme to enhance your child’s learning experiences.  They can pretend to be scientists exploring fossils, gardeners planting new seeds to grow during Springtime, or even famous chefs creating delicious meals for their customers in their own restaurant.  In our learning centers, our teachers guide your 3-year old through activities that help develop a sense of self while teaching them life skills to build and maintain positive relationships with peers and adults.

Our Brightwheel app ensures communication is constant between school and home and you’ll love the daily picture, video and message updates from your child’s teacher.  We look forward to giving your child the best preschool experience at The Valley School. 

Pre-K

Our Pre-K program (48 months to 60 months) uses a state-approved curriculum that provides your 4-year old with well-rounded learning experiences that focuses on the whole child and their development.  We make learning fun and engaging with books, poems, songs and stories – helping your child make connections between letters and words, words and sentences.  Individual assignments and projects are given to students to take home and present to their classmates during specific themes throughout the school year.  Our students are also introduced to “sight words” and writing journals to strengthen their vocabulary and handwriting skills. 

Multiple opportunities are provided to our students to strengthen their mathematic development as well.  Through small group and large group activities we help your 4-year-old see how things relate to one another by helping them identify and describe attributes and patterns in objects. They start to understand the concept of addition as putting together or adding to, and subtraction as taking apart or taking away.  Through fun and engaging monthly themes your child will lead the way in learning about people, animals, plants, the Earth and outer space. Teachers also instruct your 4-year-old how to use the appropriate tools and technology in their investigations.  In addition, we help guide your child to build their self-esteem and confidence by allowing them multiple child directed learning environments and activities throughout their day.  They build on their independence and character traits by learning empathy, self-reflection and problem solving opportunities.
