BLUE MUSTANGS are our 5 year olds. Many children and parents have come to enjoy our program’s safe and stimulating learning environment.
The children thrive with our curriculum. For the parents that wish to see this process taken to the next level Discoveries Preschool and Day Care offers a kindergarten program.
The Washoe County public school system is at its limit with a 25:1 student to teacher ratio. Some public schools require tuition assistance to meet their financial needs and it’s only a part time kindergarten program.
Discoveries Preschool and Childcare offers a comprehensive kindergarten education at our day care with a curriculum above the Washoe County requirements. We also offer a lower student to teacher ratio of 8:1. This class takes place in one our largest classroom while all the other before and after school children are still in school.
Children will journal and write stories to learn about letters and words. Science experiments will help us understand the world we live in and respect nature and our environment.
Art will help them to be creative and express themselves. Puzzles and games give your child the opportunity to practice problem solving.
The class has new themes weekly starting with learning about ourselves, our strengths and how we learn new things. Circle time is filled with theme based stories, finger plays, books songs and movement.
Show and Tell is part of circle time. In this room we continue the children’s education with the teacher table. Each day the teacher table focuses on one subject so that the teacher can work individually with each child. All children are expected to participate at the teacher table.
- Monday: Math (numbers, patterns and sorting)
- Tuesday: Writing skills (proper pencil grip and tracing) Work sheets for writing lessons
- Wednesday: Science
- Thursday: Language Arts
- Friday: Crafts
A garden helps us understand how trees, plants, flowers and food from plants are necessary to live a healthy life. We recycle and encourage a concern for the earth we live on. Exercise is experienced all the time in or out of doors.
Our 4 playgrounds are geared to the age and development of the children using them. Equipment is safe and meant for various uses. Our wonderful mature trees give us shade and many lessons about science, math and language.
Quiet time is necessary for your busy little ones in day care. Ages 5yr. and up have a relaxing quiet time for rejuvenation. Stories are read, music is played and a calming atmosphere is for all before a busy afternoon.
