Weekday Preschool

The Grove

The Grove classroom is for children ages 3-6 and are taught by a team of Speech-Language Pathologists.  In this class, we strive to develop the whole child and prepare them for his/her upcoming years in school.  We focus on social skills and strategies that every child needs to function in a school setting.  Children will engage in sensory, fine motor, academics, structured and child directed playtime.  We address concepts including emotions, cooperation, teamwork, sharing, leading, following, speaking in front of a group and carrying on a conversation with peers.  This class is perfect for a child that needs some extra assistance learning skills that make a classroom dynamic more manageable and enjoyable.

Sprouts

This group is for children ages 2-4 years old and focuses on the development of speech and language skills, prewriting/writing skills, general school routines and socialization with peers. This group is lead by a team of developmental, speech and occupational therapist who support each individual child while they participate in the group dynamic. Sprouts is a multisensory group using all a child’s sensory systems (vision, hearing, tactile, taste and body awareness) to explore and learn about the environment.  This fun and energetic class will “prep” your child for the demands of structured preschool while providing them the needed support for each child to be successful. This group meets on Tuesday & Thursday from 9-12.

Seedlings

This group is for children ages 2-3 years old and focuses on the early interaction/play skills children need to participate in a group dynamic.  Children in this group may still be mastering some of his/her gross motor skills (walking, jumping, climbing, running) as well as how to sit and attend to instruction.  This group is routine based with the flexibility for child guided play. Speech, language, prewriting skills, interactive play and early cognitive development are main focuses of this group.  New verbal vocabulary, simple signs and pictures systems are all modes of communication used in this group. This group is taught by our Developmental Therapist and meets on Monday and Wednesday mornings from 9-12.
