CURRICULUM

Curriculum

Little Wonders Preschool adheres to the teaching theory that play is fundamental to learning. Research shows that children can attain "kindergarten readiness" through play and hands-on experimentation.

 

Activities are designed for all learning styles. The alphabet is practiced daily. Children learn numbers, days of the week, months, seasons, shapes, colors, and more. Our activities help children develop patience, cooperation, boundaries, respect, and tolerance of others, as well as encouraging good manners, personal hygiene, social development, self-esteem, and personal growth.

Our curriculum is ever-changing and growing to both meet the needs of our students as well as the expectations of WUSD kindergarten teachers. Our curriculum is designed to prepare students for success in meeting the Arizona state standards. Lesson plans are posted in the classroom daily and copies are available upon request. 

We have an Open-Door-Policy. Parents of enrolled preschool students are welcome to visit and volunteer. Parents will be invited to attend holiday parties, music programs, graduations, and parent/teacher conferences throughout the year.
