At Jump Start Preschool, we believe every child should be cared for by name and need. We focus on teaching through curriculum guided fun hands on experiences. We will offer social, academic and sensory building opportunities that promote cognitive skills, large and fine motor skills and positive peer interactions. We want every child to feel at home in our classroom. Children are able to grow and thrive when they are free to create and explore. Preschool is an important time to build friendships, bond with teachers, and learn important skills such as turn taking, being helpful and showing empathy toward others. We are honored to give your child a jump start to a positive kindergarten experience. We are excited to work alongside each family and open the doors to a lifelong love of learning.
Jump Start Preschool follows a preschool modified version of Wilson Fundations Curriculum. Fundations lays the foundation for kindergarten readiness and is an updated curriculum used by many school districts including Chardon and Burton. We learn through play, creative centers, games, lots of hands on experiences and age appropriate foundational skills. Fundations emphasizes groundwork for lifelong literacy in phonemic awareness, phonics, word study, high frequency word work, vocabulary, comprehension strategies and handwriting at the preschool level. Our goal is to set your child up to love school, feel encouraged and learn at his or her own pace; all while having fun. We do this by constantly monitoring and modifying the environment and activities to help each child build and master skills. Each child will leave our preschool with an academic advantage, confidence and a love of learning.
