Programs & Curriculum

PRESCHOOL

The Preschool classroom greets children ages 2 years 9 months through age 5 and is geared towards kindergarten preparation for the 4 and 5 year olds and progressing to that level for the 3 and 4 year olds. This is the only classroom that has a multi-age curriculum that is geared towards the age range  that preschool has. The children all work on the same theme but at different levels.

The Milestone's Preschool Program focuses on:

  • Pre-reading skills
  • Number/Letter writing
  • Writing own name
  • Introduction to basic math
  • Following multi-step directions
  • Continued work on advanced self-help skills

The preschool classroom is most focused on preparing children for kindergarten. Graduates from Milestones have tested higher than average on the Kindergarten assessment exam (per parents of past students of the center). The Preschool classroom also enjoys themed Yoga and Music & Movement  on alternating Thursdays as well as field trips to the local fire station, police station and library.

TODDLER


The children in the Toddler 1 classroom range in age from 15 to 24 months. This classroom is where Milestones begins implementing a set curriculum provided by High Reach Learning, Inc. and supplemented by the educators. Each parent receives a newsletter and a book at the beginning of each month stating the concepts that the children will be working on so that they can reinforce what is being taught in school at home.

The Milestone's Toddler 1 program focuses on:

  • Setting a routine/schedule each day
  • Developing fine/gross motor skills
  • Language development through reading and flashcards
  • Shape, color and Animal name recognition
  • Ability to follow one & two step directions
  • Transitioning from two naps to one
  • Enjoying outdoor time twice daily (weather permitting)

Toddler 1 prepares the children for the next level at Milestones, Toddler 2, which has a more complex curriculum for age 2+ as well as regularly scheduled group activities such as Yoga and a Music & Movement Program.



Our Toddler 2 classroom has children who range in age from 2 years to 2 years and 9 months. These children have a High Reach Learning, Inc. curriculum that is also in place. The daily activities are similar to Toddler 1 but on a higher level as these children are preparing for Preschool.

The Milestone's Toddler 2 program focuses on:

  • Pre-reading skills
  • Developing fine/gross motor skills to a higher level
  • Speech & Language development through reading and flashcards
  • Letters, Numbers, and Color  recognition perfected
  • Listening/Following multi- step directions
  • Attention span length

Toddler 2 children also enjoy Yoga and Music & Movement classes which are given on a rotating schedule alternating every Thursday. These classes help develop listening skills, attention span and both fine and gross motor skills. The children love them!
