The Junior Class at Village Preschool is designed for children ages 3 and 4. Children at this age are just beginning to develop their social selves in a group setting. In this class we focus on social, emotional and self-help skills. These children thrive in the predictability of the daily routine and the consistency of the classroom setting.

Daily Schedule (The following times are approximate)

9:05-9:15 Children Arrive Teacher Jamie greets each child at the door upon arrival.  Teacher Michelle’s presence welcomes the children as they begin their play.
9:30 – 10:20 Work Time Children engage in self-directed play throughout the indoor and outdoor classrooms. There is a special project (i.e.; art, cooking, science) available during this time.
10:20 – 10:40 Class Gathering Singing, rhyming, rhythmic games, percussion instruments imaginative scenarios and conversation.
10:40 – 11:00 Snack  
11:00 – 11:30 Outdoor Play The whole class goes outside to play or explore with teachers.
11:30 – 11:45 Closing Activity Books, stories, puppet shows, and/or singing

“Children should never be rushed and schedules should be flexible enough to take advantage of impromptu or extend learning experiences.”
