Curriculum

Our program is child-centered and based upon the belief that play is the best way for children to learn.  Our approach is individualized to meet each child’s needs and interests. 
  • Children at the Real Life Nursery School & Kindergarten receive an educational morning and afternoon program, morning snack, hot lunch, and afternoon snack. The afternoon consists of a daily Bible story and enrichment activities which emphasize skills and concepts from the morning. Your child will also enjoy safe and healthy outdoor play on our huge adventure playground and frequent trips back to the Real Life petting Farm!  You may register your preschool child fro 2, 3, 4 or 5 days per week.  Real Life Kindergarten is a five day a week full day kindergarten program.

  • Real Life Nursery School and Kindergarten opens at 6:30am.  All children should be here by 9:00am as this will begin our preschool and kindergarten programs.

  • Real Life Nursery School begins at age 2 1/2 in order to focus on the importance of the preschool years -an important period for social and intellectual development. Our curriculum is “theme oriented.” Weekly themes are introduced through developmentally appropriate stories and presentations and carried throughout art, games, songs and play. Children are encouraged to choose freely from a wide range of play and learning experiences.

  • Each classroom is organized with centers for creative art, literature, science, pre-math, dramatic play, and small and large motor development.  These centers encourage reenactment of life’s roles.  The environment is planned to stimulate imagination, creativity, socialization, exploration and discovery while challenging the use of muscles important to developing bodies.
  • Sensory, motor, perceptual and language skills are introduced through materials and activities which are both child-centered and teacher-directed.  Work is planned which emphasizes the “process” rather than the product, fostering a sense of accomplishment and pride.

Real Life Kindergarten

The focus of the Real Life Kindergarten is to infuse a high level of curriculum studies, while at the same time, make learning a fun, playful time for all students.  We strive to provide a solid foundation of the core academic standards.   The Kindergarten class is taught by a state certified teacher. 

The children benefit from also having a qualified assistant teacher in the classroom on a daily basis.

 

Days are planned so that the children will:

  • Be safe
  • Feel secure
  • Receive individual attention and affection
  • Develop satisfying relationships with other children and adults
  • Develop self-discipline
  • Experience successes in order to develop a positive self-image
  • Learn to respect the personal and property rights of others
  • Develop intellectual and physical skills

 

We are committed to working closely with parents toward the welfare of the whole family.  Parents are welcome to visit the school at any time both prior to enrolling their child and during the child’s time at school.  Parents are also welcome to view their child’s classroom via our internet site.
