Parker's Preschool Daily Curriculum

Throughout each day, your child will develop emotionally, socially, physically and intellectually as we provide hands-on experiences in a safe and stimulating environment.  

Arrival:  Preschoolers will hang up backpacks/jackets, wash hands and greet friends.

Free Time:  A time to practice sharing and interacting with friends during free play.  Various activities including puzzles, games, trucks, trains, blocks, dolls and more are available during this time.

Planned Activities:  Preschoolers participate in a variety of activities in Art, Fine Motor Skills, Science, Math, Music and Language to best prepare them for Kindergarten.  A letter worksheet and writing our name is practiced daily.  Preschoolers will also create a craft and practice working independently during this time.

Carpet Time:  Various subjects will be worked on including colors, numbers, letters, weather, phonetics through stories, games, songs, flashcards and more.

Snack:  Manners and social skills are reinforced while trying new foods.

Large Motor Activities:  Preschoolers will play outside (weather permitting) or participate in group games, parachute play, marching bands or stretching to get them moving while building strength and coordination.

Dismissal:  Collect belongings and wait for parent/caregiver’s arrival.


Ready, Set, Go Program (Ages 2-3)

Parker’s Playtime Preschool offers both a Three Year Old Program and Four Year Old Program.  Students must turn the corresponding age by September 1, 2020 and be fully potty trained to enroll within the program.  If your child is too young for our Three Year Old Program or not potty trained, check out our Ready, Set, Go Program!  Ready, Set, Go is based off of our Parker’s Playtime Preschool, but adapted to meet the needs of a slightly younger age group.
