A NEW HALF-DAY PRESCHOOL
What is The Little School?
We are a non-religion based, half-day preschool for ages 2-5. Our school is on a Monday-Friday 9am-1pm schedule with the option for M,W,F care or M-F care. Our classroom is mixed age and has limited spacing. Our school operates within Drop & Play, the areas only drop-in childcare center located at 820 Fleming St. Suite B, 28791.
Our first day of school will be Wednesday September 4, 2019 and will operate until Friday May 29,2020.
We have customized our own curriculum which draws inspiration from many educational modalities such as montessori, waldorf, and charlotte mason practices. Our curriculum will include language arts, writing skills, literacy, science, math, practical life skills, fine and gross motor skills, world cultures and traditions, with a large influence on nature studies. Each month will have a theme, and each week will have a focus within that theme. We believe children thrive on rhythm and repetition, and structure our days to consist of such. Each week the same book or poem will be read, encouraging the children to explore the stories in a different way every time they hear it. We will also do weekly art studies and nature journaling. We make a conscious effort to reduce our paper waste by organizing crafts that require more time and effort from the students. The purpose of this is to reduce paper sent home to you, as well as give the students the opportunity to participate in an evolving project from start to finish.
