EXETER COMMUNITY PRESCHOOL
The purpose of Exeter Community Preschool is to provide a healthful, safe and varied environment in which our children can develop socially, physically, emotionally and mentally. We want to instill in each child a positive self-image, to help each child handle responsibility for his or her needs and desires, and to provide a warm, nurturing and happy place for the first school experience.
Your child's day begins with free play, where they are able to greet friends, explore the classroom and choose their own activity. This allows them to express themselves and get comfortable in their classroom setting.
Circle time is where your child will practice the alphabet, numbers, colors, and shapes, as well as learn about the calendar. During this time, each child is given a "job of the day" which teaches responsibility and taking turns. Circle time also includes various songs and hand motions, which keeps them engaged and aids in memorization.
Each day your child will engage in activities that cultivate creativity and help prepare them for their next step in education. Lessons facilitate process versus product activities, some of which include coloring, painting, cutting, games and a multitude of other fine motor skill activities. Daily, your child is working on name recognition and eventually your child will master writing their name.
During the school day, your child is given the opportunity to get outside with their classmates! Exeter Community Preschool provides multiple toys and different activities to enrich your child's adventurous side. Outdoor activity and fresh air are critical to the healthy and well-rounded development of your child.
Exeter Community Preschool is a parent cooperative school. Parents are active participants in the running of the school and every day in the classroom, whether it is holding a board position or volunteering in the class.
Exeter Community Preschool provides the opportunity to get outside the classroom and explore our community. These optional excursions are fun for the student with their family, alongside their classmates.
From language and literacy development to social skills and creative expression, the children at Exeter Community Preschool are constantly being exposed to new activities and environments in which to thrive. We build on the strengths and interests of each child to help build a solid foundation where they can develop their futures. Get in touch to learn more about us.
