Our team at Hi-Five wants to get your child ready to start preschool before they turn 2 years old. This class is for children who miss the September cut-off for preschool, but are ready to learn and play! At the beginning of the year each child will bring along a caregiver, with our intention that by November they will be on their own with the support of their teacher and coach.
Nothing is more rewarding than seeing your child grow throughout the year as they joyfully explore the environment, manipulatives, learning materials, and the other children around them. Classes will be held in a preschool classroom environment, giving them the opportunity to experience some of the typical daily activities and get accustomed to learning from an experienced preschool teacher. This class encourages creativity, cognitive and social development, and independence in a preschool setting, along with working on gross and fine motor skills. During the session, we will also incorporate a “regular” day of preschool, fun sports classes, and, of course, snacks!
