Pumpkin Patch Preschool is a small private kindergarten prep program enrolling 10 children age 3 - 5.
We are open full day, year round for parents piece of mind. We do one thing here and we do it well, that is to teach our preschoolers as much as we can and have as much fun as possible doing it. I credit the success of our program with a combination of things; Low student to teacher ratio 2-10 and the ability to give personal attention to each child and their family. The individual attention and care your child receives is second to none as well as the learning experiences that are designed around your child's development. Many years of tried and true practices have gone into our plan to help your child achieve self confidence, independence and kindergarten readiness.
Our philosophy is simple, it is for every child to feel welcome and wanted, a sense of belonging. We do this by providing a safe and age appropriate environment as well as guidance and support.
~JUST FOR FUN:
Every month we have a special event. Our 2017/18 schedule of special events has been planned. Our news letter is posted at school each month so that you wont miss a thing.
We make delicious meals and snacks fresh each day. Our menu is posted at school for you every week. Meals and snacks are provided to all children at no additional charge. USDA approved through Yours For Children Inc.
Our curriculum is both developmental and academic supporting the whole child through positive reinforcement. The developmental aspect of our curriculum is play based, meaning that the children are free to chose age appropriate play activities that have a learning outcome as well as social and emotional peer practice. The roll of academics here is to teach our kids what they need to succeed in kindergarten. With literacy being a priority here it's no wonder that reading simple sentences and sight words before kindergarten is typical of our kids that have been with us for both preschool and pre-k. Four and five year olds reading is pretty impressive, you've got to see it for yourself.
