3 - 4 Years
The Talented Tots Preschool Superstars classroom is designed to prepare your child for Pre-Kindergarden. In this room we continue using the Frog Street Press curriculum. This curriculum allows your child to learn letters and letter sounds through silly songs, stories and characters. It is designed so that your child can develop early reading skills by imitating reading patterns and beginning to retell simple stories. In this classroom your child will also learn to write his/her name. Fine motor skills are taught through the opportunity to trace letters, color and use scissors. Social skills will be learned through imaginative play, sensory exploration and organized games/activities. In this preschool classroom we also incorporate a daily circle time and thematic units.Enrollment Schedule a Tour
Students ages two years and older will have the opportunity to participate in each of the following exploratory classes once per week. These classes are included in your childcare tuition at no additional charge.
Research shows that exposing children to a foreign language has a positive impact on their communication and critical thinking skills, and it raises cultural awareness. Students will be introduced to the Spanish language through key concepts like colors, days of the week, months of the year, body parts and commonly used words. Spanish lessons are filled with exciting activities such as songs, puppets, books and games, to reinforce these concepts.
Students will be introduced to an early childhood music and movement program based on the belief that every child is musical. Research has proven that music nurtures a child’s cognitive, emotional, social, and language development. You will see your child grow and develop in all these areas at his or her own pace. Each daycare class is made up of singing and dancing activities, playing games, reading books, playing instruments, and more.
At Talented Tots Preschool, students will be introduced to gymnastics to help improve balance, gain muscle and strength, and learn fundamental skills. Running, jumping jacks, and core exercises begin each class, followed by gross and fine motor skills development, and skilled social activities to keep their little bodies moving. Activities include stretching, basic cartwheels, balancing activities, and back bends, with physical education resources. Warmup activities are followed by the balance beam, mini-trampoline, and gym mat exercises. Throughout all Talented Tots daycare activities, we work as a team to encourage each other, improve our skills, and accomplish our goals.
We are so excited to expand our music classes at Talented Tots to include the toddler classes. Toddler music classes will include singing, fingerplays, movement, dancing and instrument exploration. We will use fun songs to learn about animals, transportation, holidays, seasons, rhymes and much more. We will explore moving our fingers, hands and whole body because movement is key to learning. We will also nurture the toddler’s singing and speaking voice with an age-appropriate mix of songs and rhymes. Toddlers will explore instruments which are designed just for toddlers, like shakers and drums, as well as other non-musical props like balls, scarves, puppets and more. Be watching for lists of songs that we will be singing in class so you can sing along at home with their favorites.

Preschool is very important for several reasons. Children at this age are very social, and being in a preschool setting helps foster their confidence when meeting new friends and teachers. It allows them time away from parents to learn and grow independently. Three and four year-olds LOVE to learn and are very inquisitive! Our schedule and curriculum, Frog Street Press, is specially designed to give your child quality educational, interactive, and fun experiences!
