Preschool (4 year old)

LilyPad provides a half-day community preschool program to children who turn four years old by September 15. By enrolling in our preschool program, your child will have the chance to meet and interact with the classmates he or she will join in kindergarten. This will ease what can be a tough transition from home to school.

Our preschool curriculum focuses on four main areas of your preschooler’s development: social/emotional, physical, cognitive and language. Within these areas of development, there are 10 goals and 50 objectives that our teachers will help your child achieve. Accomplishing these goals will help prepare your child to become a successful grade-schooler!
The preschool curriculum is organized into theme-based units that address complex topics that encourage children to develop their skills and confidence. Each unit incorporates language, math, science, art, music, motor skills and social development. Some features of our preschool program include:

  • Observation-based assessments that illustrate your child’s developmental progress
  • Themed units that encourage creativity, self-direction, and confidence
  • Supplemental curriculum with the SECOND STEP and Handwriting Without Tears® systems
  • Small group instruction
  • Regular communication between teachers and parents to keep you informed about your child's day
