Preschool at Calhoun
Calhoun’s preschool is a place where children take their first steps to becoming lifelong learners. Preschool students learn to build, create, communicate and collaborate. They begin to engage with numbers and words through a wide range of tactile activities that are woven into the fabric of the school day. Most of all, they start to discover who they are – developing self-confidence and curiosity for the world around them.
Much of the preschool experience at Calhoun is about becoming part of a community. Children learn to express their needs, listen to others, and work as a team. They form strong bonds with peers and teachers, and gain an appreciation for differences. Within the safety and structure of their school community, our youngest scholars receive a strong foundation for their future academic pursuits.
Each day in preschool includes:
- Choice time
- Work time
- Outdoor play
- Meeting time: Building community, reading stories and exploring new themes as a group
- Specialist classes in music, theater and physical education
- Spanish interaction through music, stories and daily routine
