Preschool is more than just kids playing games, singing songs and having fun. Preschool is also the time when a child’s growth and development happen. At Creative Learning Academy, in Tampa, we offer a preschool program that promotes not only brain development but also social and emotional development. It is our goal to help children develop holistically, along with academically.
Here are the 7 things that your child will learn at The Creative Learning Academy preschool in Tampa.
In preschool, games and play help children learn the basic concepts around them. Lessons are not limited to what they can learn inside the classroom. Children are taught how to observe their surroundings, their environment, and nature. They will learn how to relate what they see and feel to what they learn from their teachers. Our preschool teachers will show them basic shapes and their names and what they look like through games and art projects.
Language and the alphabet
Kids spend most of their day in preschool connecting and working together with their classmates. This gives them the chance to have conversations and organize their thoughts to develop their language skills. Preschool is also the first place where they learn the basics of ABC’s. They learn how to write the letters of the alphabet even if they look like scribbles. Kids also learn how to spell and write their names and learn how sounds correspond to each letter of a word.
Numbers and Math
Our preschool teaches kids how to count by memorizing the order of numbers 1 through 10. Children will also learn how each number looks and name them correctly. They will be given activities that involve counting, sorting and matching. These are the basic skills they will need to strengthen their Math foundation used in their upcoming school years.
Children start learning about Science in preschool. They will learn about science through observation and experimentation. Simple tasks and activities will be given to them, like planting seeds or testing what floats and what sinks at a water table, etc. Sending your child to our Tampa preschool is an excellent way to prepare them for kindergarten. We offer a preschool program that will focus on their holistic growth and development and start establishing the foundations of learning that will help them in the future.
To promote a child’s healthy emotional development, they are given plenty of opportunities to learn how to share and play with others. Kids are not always aware of their feelings, let alone able to control them. In their preschool years, they will learn how to manage and deal with their emotions. It is also in preschool that kids learn how their emotions will affect their peers. They will be in situations where they can practice problem-solving and dealing with their feelings in socially acceptable ways.
Developing a sense of who they are as a person is one of the most important things children learn in our Tampa preschool. They are exposed to diverse and similar peers. Children need to feel a sense of belonging and at the same time, they need to understand how they are unique and different from others. In preschool, children learn to listen and understand different points of view. We make it happen with the help of specialized programs and lesson plans intended to teach the value and beauty of diversity.
At an early age, a child’s cognitive skills are growing faster than we can imagine. That’s what makes this the best time to send kids to preschool and promote their brain development even further. Preschool gives more opportunities for children to think, question, investigate and dig deeper to solve problems. They will be given fun yet challenging activities that will enhance your child’s cognitive reactions.
