OUR CURRICULUM IS FUN, PLAY-BASED, & CHALLENGING!
Every day is an adventure! From the engaging and bright classroom to exciting hands-on activities, your child will develop a love for life-long learning!
Our curriculum is based on the NAEYC guidelines and features a balance of teacher-directed and child-initiated hands-on activities to accomplish these goals.
We incorporate a variety of learning techniques from Puppets and stories, to Art and Science projects, as well as games and we use a guided reading system.
We Partner With You!
While Over The Bay Pre-K doesn't assess your child, we do provide you with the materials and assessment sheets each semester so that you can track their progress.
And YES, we show you how! It's best done just observing your child as they play, and practice, and even as they are watching the recorded classes.
Fun Themes & Projects!
Every three months we start new, exciting themes based on shapes, letters, numbers. Then science, art, reading, and games are added that support that semester's outlines.
While the material changes, the consistency that your child thrives on is maintained. From Rupert, the Puppet, to the Science Wall, the Cutouts Board, and other backdrops the classroom stays familiar. Your child is able to thrive with the new materials in an environment that is both consistent and comfortable.
We Love Questions!
We aim to help children become independent, self-confident, inquisitive, and enthusiastic learners by actively exploring their environment.
In fact, one of the best ways we can teach is to ask THEM questions. "What are you creating?" "How does it work?" "Tell me about what you drew." etc. And they can share what they are learning on the private student portfolio page.
Process... Not Product!
Think online preschool equals "educational" video games? Not here my friend!
From thinking through what might happen with a science project, and then seeing the result, to learning how to draw, and even playing along as I lead a lesson on the cutouts board - each class is a fun-packed 30 minutes.
Children learn SO MUCH MORE when they have the chance to explore and play and use their imagination.
