OUR LCSH PRESCHOOL 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Security is important to us, and we do not publish any information about our monthly schedules on the web site.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 Preschool (Our Little Explorers)
The Pre-School teachers prepare developmentally appropriate Curriculum Plans, incorporating goals and objectives that follow the Massachusetts Early Learning Guidelines. Our pre-school children are ready to conquer the world. Classrooms are overflowing with challenging toys and equipment that offer a stimulating, and colorful environment.
Little Corner SchoolHouse Pre-School provides a setting where children can be independent and exercise a variety of personal, social and emotional skills. We also encourage problem solving, cognitive as well as symbolic thinking, math concepts and logistics. Blocks and other mathematical manipulative materials promote planning, problem solving, concepts of physics and creative thinking.
Art projects promote creativity and self-expression, while music instructs our pre-schoolers in learning musical concepts through songs, games, hymns, rhythm, instrument and group ensembles. Dance and movement promote physical fitness and coordination.
Literacy, language arts, and self-expression are encouraged at this stage and age. Our goal at Little Corner SchoolHouse is to promote your child's love of learning. Literacy begins at birth and we encourage early learning through our literacy activities in the nursery.
Our pre-school children have opportunities to help make sense of their experiences and develop an understanding of who they are while learning to care about others.
Our care and education of your children is important to us, and we consider you, the parents, our partners in developing and ensuring the best experience for your child at LCSH. We send an email to parents every month to communicate news, announcements, and information about special activities and field trips that are planned for the month. You are always welcome to communicate with us any news, new information and/or concerns about your child.
