Preschool/Kindergarten (3 to 6 years)

Warwick Child Care believes that learning at this age takes place through touch, manipulation and experimentation. Our teachers plan weekly theme-related activities appropriate to the needs, interests, and abilities of the children in this age group. They know the key to providing a high quality, developmentally appropriate program during this time is to act primarily as a guide, always keeping in mind the child's developmental level.

Our goals for our Preschoolers are:

Language development by understanding and using words and phrases, defining and identifying simple words, and distinguishing between concepts

Auditory discrimination and memory by characterizing alike and different words, rhyming games, and retelling stories in sequence

Social skills through cooperating, helping, negotiating, and talking with the person involved to solve interpersonal problems

Imaginative development through dramatization, creative storytelling, and role playing

Science experiences including blowing bubbles, flying kites, planting seeds, weather, and experiments

Fine motor skills through a variety of puzzles, pegboards, stringing beads, construction sets, and art materials including scissors, glue, markers, and crayons

Understanding of math concepts through classifying, sorting, patterning, number recognition, and computer skills

Aesthetic expression and appreciation through art and music, both cultural and intellectual, and including a variety of art media
