Curriculum: Our vision is a preschool program that contributes to the development of the whole child. Our program seeks to provide early and appropriate opportunities for the child to develop socially, emotionally, physically, spiritually and academically. The content of the preschool program will be adjusted to meet the interests, needs and skill levels of each student.
Age Grouping: The children of Easter Preschool are three, four and five years old. We have combined the children into one classroom with 20 children of mixed ages. There are two teachers with education backgrounds in the classroom at all times. We feel there are many advantages to mixed age grouping. Each child grows at his/her own rate and has differing experience levels. By providing the children with open ended experiences they may learn at the pace for which they are developmentally prepared.
Licensing: Easter Preschool is licensed by the Minnesota Department of Human Services. We agree with and follow their rules. We have achieved accreditation from the National Academy of Early Childhood Programs.
