Altoona 8th Street
This class room is our first preschool classroom. This room has a capacity of up to 16 children. If we have more then eight children in the class at any one time we will have two teachers in the class.
In this class room, the teachers use teacher directed activities as well as child directed activities. We believe that children learn best through play. With that in mind we use a lot of music, games, art, and activities to introduce the concepts of the alphabet and numbers to children. The teachers use the children's interests as well as the environment around them to build a curriculum that is focused on each child's development in all areas. These include, Social/ Emotional, Physical, Language, Cognitive, Literacy, Mathematics, Science and Technology, Social Studies, and The Arts.
Our teachers at the preschool level have around 30-40 hrs of training per year. We use Creative Curriculum and Positive Behavioral Support in each class room. This helps create a positive environment in which children can thrive and learn to love to learn.
