Our Classes

Our classes at Jefferson Street Preschool teach age-appropriate curriculum (in the form of weekly thematic units) for our students in an exciting and nurturing environment. We are different from a typical daycare. We offer the highest quality education from experienced teachers who love what they do. And our program is offered half-day from 9:00AM-12:00PM. Below is an explaination of what each class teaches:

Toddler Class*12 months-24 months:                    
Through singing, play, and circle time our toddlers learn a variety of skills that include
  • social skills-manners, how to share, and how to play appropriately with friends in a fun learning environment.
  • motor skills- fine and gross motor skills are very important for this age, this is accomplished through manipulative toys and group games.
  • transitional skills-learning how to move to and from activities smoothly, and adapting to a school schedule.
Two Year Old Class:
Our "terrific" twos learn through a center based environment, very much like that of a Montessori model, where the children are allowed special time to move around the room and learn at a variety of developmentally appropriate centers like science, art, or reading. These are some of the concepts that our two year olds will learn throughout the year: 
  • social, motor, and transitional skills
  • potty training, if appropriate for the child
  • colors, shapes, numbers, and letter recognition
  • singing & dramatic play
  • creative arts through working with paints, playdough, scissors, pencils, etc...
Three & Four Year Old Classes:
Our 3's and 4's are getting ready for "big kid" school! Our teachers work very hard to prepare them for life after preschool. They are learning many skills that will help in this big transition:
  • learning to write and recognize their name
  • word recognition
  • reading and writing skills
  • problem solving
  • math and science skills
