Areas of Focus for a Successful Student at Lewis Cass Preschool
We will focus on five key areas: academics, arts, motor skills, relationships, and play while having FUN! All of these areas combined give your child the best pathway to success. Your child may be strong in some areas but need work in others. Our goal is for every student to be proficient in every area.
Just as gross motor skills enable your child to perform important everyday tasks, such as getting out of bed and going downstairs for breakfast, fine motor abilities allow for increasing independence in smaller but equally significant matters: opening doors, zipping zippers, brushing teeth, washing hands, and so on.
When combined with increasing hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills also open new doors to exploration, learning, and creative expression. In fact, research shows that emphasis on purely intellectual activities—memorization of letters and numbers, for instance—is far less useful at this stage than pursuits that encourage fine motor abilities and hand-eye coordination.
The connection between child and teacher is more important than any curriculum. This is what every parent knows by instinct: nice teachers matter, especially for very young children. This is the first time in many instances that your child will be away from you for any extended period of time. It is very important that these new adult relationships with a teacher be nurturing and positive.
Play and have FUN!
Most parents assume if there is a focus on ABCs and 123s, there is little room for play. Great preschools do both, and success in the early years of a child’s education often allows children opportunities to explore the building blocks of literacy and math through play.
Other kinds of play are just essential as well. Imaginative play, for example. Some form of daily “pretend play” improves emotional/behavioral skills, which predict academic performance later. When you visit the school, look for a costume corner, art on the walls, pretend kitchen sets, and pairs or small groups of children working together creating and collaborating.
