Our goal of the preschool program is to prepare children for the next stage of their lives. All activities are carefully designed to develop critical thinking skills, motor abilities, and healthy interactions with others. Our program aims to adequately nurture the emotional, intellectual and physical growth of our kids.
Everything we think, say, and do is processed through our own cultural backgrounds. But because culture is absorbed and passed down from generation to generation rather than explicitly taught, we’re seldom aware of it.
Through culture activities children build up their sense to histroy, geography, environment and surroundings, understand economics and economic concepts, civics and government diversity.
We bring fresh hawthorn berry to our classroom and Tang hulu（糖葫芦）together. Tang hulu is a traditional fall-winter seasonal snack in China. It consisting of several rock sugar-coated fruits of Chinese hawthorn on a bamboo skewer. It is named for its calabash(hulu)-like shape. Chinese hawthorn berry is the traditional fruit used for the skewering of fruit. Children experienced the process of making Tang Hulu, getting to know the Chinese hawthorn plant and it's fruit, the different crystal of sugar and physical change of sugar, and had a lot of fun in the classsroom!
Approaches to learning focus on how children learn. It refers to the skills and behaviors that children use to engage in learning. Children draw on emotional and behavioral self-regulation skills in many ways. They develop different coping strategies to manage feelings when playing with other children and when following classroom rules.
During play, preschoolers manage their actions, words, and behaviors with increasing independence. They acquire skills to interact with their peers and adults appropriately and with confidence.
Communication is fundamental to the human experience, and language and literacy are essential to children’s learning. Preschoolers are sophisticated language users who harness language in order to take in new and complex information and organize their world. As they delve into new learning experiences, they add mathematical or scientific terms to their vocabulary.
For preschoolers, language and literacy are distinct domains to reflect the differentiation, centrality, breadth, and depth of language and literacy development in this age range. Preschoolers are beginning to grasp how written language is structured with sounds and symbols.
Mathematics development in preschoolers refers to understanding numbers and quantities, their relationships, and operations, such
as what it means to add to and take away. Mathematics also includes shapes and
their structures, reasoning, measurement, classification, and patterns.
Scientific reasoning refers to the emerging ability to develop scientific knowledge about the natural and physical worlds, learn scientific skills and methods, and continue developing reasoning and problem-solving skills. For preschoolers, scientific investigation includes making observations, recording them, talking about them, and analyzing them.
Preschoolers rely on perceptual information to develop greater awareness of their bodies in space and to move effectively to perform tasks, such as kicking a ball to a friend.
Children’s physical well-being depends on a number of factors, including their knowledge and use of safe, healthy behaviors and routines. Children’s ability to keep themselves safe and healthy, such as communicating to adults when they are hungry or sick, is extremely important in its own right and contributes to learning and development in all areas.
