Our curriculum are set up to promote active exploration.  Rocking toys and large climbing structures develop gross-motor skills, while pretend play items like kitchen sets and play food illuminate a child’s imagination.

Communication between the home and preschool class is very important to us.  We provide families with a daily log of their child’s feeding, sleeping, diapering and learning activities.  The classroom has a lesson plan board in our Parent Information Center that relays to the parents the activities and learning goals that we are focusing on for the day.

The Toddler Program at New Life Preschool is designed around shared learningexperiences that stimulate and challenge your child every day.  Children learn best by having a variety of choices in an organized environment.  Daily we provide the children with materials and manipulatives as well as planned activities that promote fine- and gross-motor skills, receptive and expressive language, positive relationships with peers and adults, and intellectual curiosity, all while nurturing your child’s developing sense of self.
