"Education is the most powerful weapon which   you can use to change the world". Nelson Mandela

Pinecone Preschool adheres to the teaching theory that play is fundamental to learning. Research shows that children can attain "kindergarten readiness" through play and hands-on experimentation. Pinecone Preschool offers a center-based activities program before and after formal classroom instruction. "Choice" centers children can choose from are:

  • Listening and Audio

  • Pretend Play

  • Writing

  • Reading

  • Math

  • Science and Sensory

  • Art

  • Small Manipulative Skills (beading, puzzles, matching, peg boards, card and board games, and Cuisenaire rods)

  • Large Manipulative Skills (cars, dinosaurs, animals, blocks, and building tools)

 

Pinecone Preschool activities are designed for all learning styles and include everything from toe painting to forming letters with spaghetti and sticks to drawing numbers in the sand. The alphabet is practiced daily. Children learn numbers, days of the week, months, seasons, shapes, colors, and much more. Our activities help children develop patience, cooperation, boundaries, respect, and tolerance of others, as well as encouraging good manners, personal hygiene, social development, self-esteem, and personal growth, all of which are essential for a to reach their full potential.

At Pinecone Preschool we feel it is important to nurture the whole child. We prepare children to succeed; we create a love of learning that will continue through adulthood. When children graduate from Pinecone Preschool they are confident, socially-skilled, with a strong sense of self-worth and a passion for learning.
