    Classroom Information:

     Cedar Park will host two SPP classrooms. Each classroom will have:

    • 20 Students

    • 1 Certified Lead Teacher

    • 1 Instructional Assistant

    • 1 Classroom Helper

    • 6.5-hour school day

    • Breakfast is optional

     

    Our classrooms use the High Scope educational approach. This approach is consistent with the best practices recommended by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Our goals for children include:

    • A sense of belonging, positive social relationships, whole child development and academic learning to reach their full potential

    • To learn through active involvement with people, materials, events and ideas

    • To become independent, responsible and confident-ready for school and ready for life

    • To learn to plan their own activities, carry them out, and talk with others about what they have done and what they have learned

    • To gain knowledge and skills in academic, social and physical areas;

     

    FAQ’s:

    • Will follow the same schedule bell time and calendar as K-5 program

    • Will have PE every day

    • No transportation for the preschool program.

    • Will have open house on Tuesday the 5th and family connection visits on 6th, 7th and 8th.  Same as kindergarten

    • The afterschool program is for the preschool too so they need to enroll with Kids Co. if they are interested.

    • No school supply list for the preschool, we have a few items they should bring listed on the letter, change of clothes, water bottle, blanket for rest etc.

    • They can bring their own lunch or buy school lunch or breakfast

    • Preschoolers will eat meals in the classrooms
