Preschool Goals

The primary goal of the preschool is to provide a warm and supportive atmosphere wherein children can develop those skills appropriate to their developmental level. More specifically, program goals include assisting the child in the development of:

  • Expressive and receptive language skills
  • Sensory-perceptual skills, especially visual and auditory
  • Reasoning skills or the ability to use prior bits of knowledge or learning to solve new problems.
  • Fine and gross motor skills
  • Interpersonal skills necessary for effective interaction with others
  • Intrapersonal skills necessary for personal autonomy.

The above are developed through various content areas and activities enjoyable to the children. Recognizing the inter-dependence of these skills, the classification serves as a guide for assessment and planning.
