Community’s Philosophy of Learning

Children are free to inquire, experiment and create. They learn to think!

Our Programs

The four year olds build on the foundation established within our community the previous year and focus on getting ready for Kindergarten. The idea of “community” is further enhanced as they learn about each other through Show and Tell, story writing and, though they bring lunch every day, on Friday they prepare their lunch at school and share it together. The 4 year olds learn about the community they live in through monthly field trips which begin with walking around the village center and then venture out to further destinations. Our class also begins to learn to care for the wider community they live in through several service projects.

Our newest program offering provides an early school experience for our 2 year olds. The children will participate in Circle Time, which will include stories and fingerplays. They will enjoy music and movement, and will have a chance to explore instruments and dance with new friends. Art is often a favorite activity among two year olds, and in our 2s program children will have the opportunity to experience different media, explore new textures and enjoy creating their own masterpieces. The children will also enjoy snack together with their new friends which helps to build a sense of community and allows them to practice their developing social skills.

3s Program  (3-day)

Curriculum

Extended Day

12:30 pm to 3:00 pm

In addition to regular class time, we offer to the 3s and 4s an Extended Day option from 12:30 to 3:00 pm. Enrollment will be on a semester basis, by day of the week.

The philosophy of the three-year-old program at Community is learning through play and building a lifetime of curious and confident learning.  The 3s class has four central goals which we practice every day.  We work on small and gross motor skills through high-quality toys, art, movement, and outdoor play.  We work on creative expression through dramatic play, music, and storytelling.  We encourage cognitive development by daily reading, and encouraging beginning math and science skills.  Lastly, we focus on social development - developing a “community “of friendships and working on conflict resolution - through guided free play and circle time.  Our classroom is one of respect and appreciation for the wonder of children.
