The PM Preschool is co-taught by Ruthie Hornaday, Barb Tracy and Kathy Harrington. Class meets Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 1.00-3.30 pm. The mission of this program is to foster a foundation for learning through building relationships with teachers and peers. Both child-directed (self-selected) and teacher-directed activities are part of the day in the form of “rug-time”, art, snack, singing, dancing, pretending, building, etc. Teachers use their understanding of the individual children to build curriculum and foster confidence by scaffolding each child’s skills. Children ages 3 (by September 1) to 5 years work together to develop social skills necessary for later academic success.
