The Greatleaps program is based on a philosophy that all children can excel in an environment that is safe, positive, and academically-centered. Every child has the right to learn, to be successful, and to feel safe and secure. We believe that all children deserve respect and personal attention.
Greatleaps Preschool will provide each child with the opportunity for structured learning experiences as well as structured social interaction and growth.
Greatleaps curriculum is designed to prepare children for a positive Kindergarten experience. After completing our program, your child will be ready to face Kindergarten head-on, and become a leader in his/her class.
The following is a comprehensive list of the standards for our program. Students will have a Greatleaps folder showing the standards we will be learning for the month.
- Ordinal Numbers
- Directional Skills
- Taking Turns
- Playing Cooperatively
- Working with peers for a common goal
- Using appropriate school behavior during class time
