OUR LCSH PRE-KINDERGARTEN PROGRAM
We foster a love of learning in all of our students from day one. We work with you, the parents, to ensure a fun, educational, and safe experience that fits the needs of your child. We respect individual needs and schedules, and we cater to each child in our care.
Our classrooms contain safe, age-appropriate, creativity-inspiring and fun toys and equipment, including a wide variety of art and building materials, costumes, water tables, and sand tables. Our nursery has calm and soothing sleep areas and a vibrant and fun play area. The Preschool and Pre-K classes have computers for supervised use of educational software.
A professional musician/singer visits every classroom each week to enhance our music curriculum. A scientist visits each week for hands-on experiments and discovery with our Pre-K children.
Our teachers are always actively involved in planning curriculum that remains fresh and current with specific interest for their classrooms and that is relevant to our community. Our monthly programs are rich in art, music, science, literature, culinary arts, and friendship lessons - all including the most important part - play!
Security is important to us, and we do not publish any information about our monthly schedules on the web site. Please contact us to discuss particular classroom schedules.
Our facilities are accessible by foot, car and public transportation and are within easy walking distance of several parks and playgrounds. The park used as our primary outdoor play area has spaces and equipment appropriate for the different needs of younger and older children.
Our locations in the heart of Brookline provide us with wonderful learning opportunities. We make regular trips to the library, and many of the neighboring businesses in the area are happy to host us and let the children see up close how they operate. Recent local visits include: post office, fire department, courthouse, bakery, chocolate shop, bank, and dog groomer. The children love being a part of the community!
LCSH Pre-Kindergarten (Our Little Scholars)
Our Little Corner SchoolHouse (LCSH) Pre-Kindergarten classroom is an exciting place for our students as they begin to take an active role in their own education! The Pre-K classroom reflects our goal to promote and extend the love of learning that begins in our nursery.
Our wonderful, caring, and experienced teachers guide the students through their daily curriculum and special activities. We help our children relate to others in an understanding and respectful manner. While learning is paramount, fun and games do not take a back seat, with activities that include swimming, weekly music sessions, weekly science sessions, cooking experiences, a theatre program, computer activities, yoga, and a literacy program.
In our Pre-K environment, we encourage open-ended exploration, discovery, and investigation. The curriculum is designed to enhance each child's self-esteem. It gives the children an opportunity for optimum growth in academics, socialization, physical fitness, and emotional wellbeing.
