PRESCHOOL

Our Program

 

Horizon Elementary’s child care program leverages elements from the ‘Leader In Me’ program to inspire lifelong lessons based on the 7 Habits inspired by Stephen Covey’s leadership program. This method inspires the uniqueness of each child and allows children to develop according to her/his own inherent abilities and timetable but with a focus on developing habits that are constructive, that will prepare them for successful entry into elementary school. In a constructive environment, leadership materials are taught to appeal to their use of logic and order and their own natural desire to learn.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Through books, active play, arts and other learning materials, students will have hands-on exploration encouraged through listening and viewing. All material is presented in a delightful manner within a comfortable and child-friendly environment.  The many activities utilise unique materials that strengthen fine motor control, lengthen concentration and sharpen the senses. Children are allowed the freedom to practice and refine their skills and cultivate good work habits. Children are stimulated to express their thoughts and feelings while all avenues to learning are explored. Each child is encouraged to feel good about themselves and their own abilities.

 

Pre-K Level 1

 

The pre-k level one program for 3-year-olds will help children develop their awareness of their surroundings by reinforcing numbers, words, alphabets, days of the week, months, colours, shapes, speech and ideas. Children will be encouraged to learn through developing healthy habits that will help develop their full potential socially, emotionally, and physically. There will be themes throughout the year to encourage discussions while fostering excitement for learning.

 

Pre-K Level 2

 

The pre-k level two program for 4-year-olds will continue to reinforce numbers, words, colours, shapes, speech and ideas, like level one, however at this level the students will be encouraged to also explore books, reading, recognition of words, art & crafts and other learning materials. Children will be encouraged to learn through developing healthy habits that will help develop their full potential socially, emotionally, and physically. There will be themes throughout the year to encourage discussions while fostering excitement for learning.
