In this program children develop essential skills through participating in various classroom activities. The following is a list of some of these activities.

Circle Time - helps to develop listening and language skills.

Snack Time - provides an opportunity to practice their language skills by socializing with their Classmates.

Free Play - encourages children to move from parallel play to cooperative play. They learn how to share, take turns, compromise and respect their classmates. When play is done, children help to clean up the toys. This activity teaches children how to categorize and sort. It also gives them a sense of ownership and pride in their classroom.

Craft Time and Academic Time - provides us an opportunity to teach the children shapes, numbers, and colors. We start introducing the letters of the alphabet and focus on letter sound and recognition. This introduction to the alphabet is done through our alphabet art series and our "magic bag". New vocabulary words starting with the letter of the week are introduced to help build language. Letter sounds are introduced through music and singing. 

Crafts are hands on activities that represent the children's work. The focus is on the process not the product, though the end results are always adorable. During craft time, children practice with scissors, crayons, paint brushes, playdough and a variety of materials. These activities are used to foster creativity and help strengthen fine motor skills.

Weather permitting, we use our outdoor playground, which is always a highlight of the day.

Our program provides lots of learning in an age appropriate, fun environment.

As a special treat for all of Abby's students, each of our preschool programs include play in Abby's Village Square every 4-6 weeks.
