At Bell's Little Learners, we realize choosing the right preschool for your child is a significant and exciting decision. We want you to feel certain you're choosing a preschool that focuses on learning, yet appreciates the significance of fun. Our preschool encourages your child's development, without him or her growing up too fast. You want an atmosphere where your child can make friends and share the fun of learning with other children. We know that you want your child to be cared for by teachers who keep him or her safe, loved and nurtured based on individual personality and unique abilities. At Bell's Little Learners we start our preschool program at 18 months. It is our belief that a fun, caring preschool program geared towards toddlers is the best way to teach children that school is fun. Our goals for our preschool and pre k programs are:
• To make sure your children are in a safe and clean environment.
• To ensure they have fun while at school.
• To teach them that learning is fun.
• To expose them to a variety of activities including dance, music, computers, etc (at no extra charge)
• To teach them how to play and work with others.
• To give them the skills needed to make a smooth transition into kindergarten.
Below is a brief description of each of our preschool and pre-k classes. Please feel free to stop by for a tour and see our beautiful facility, meet the teachers, and learn all about what our fabulous program can offer you and your family.
In our Tiny Toons class the children range from age 18 months till 2 1/2 years old. During their time in this room children are exposed to a preschool curriculum. They learn their letters, numbers, colors, shapes, seasons and senses. The children have music, story time, and arts and crafts everyday. The children are encouraged to play with each other in order to learn how to share. Our program is designed to provide children with the basics before moving into our preschool program. We also begin potty training with every child in this class.
Our Munchkins class is our preschool class. The children range in age from 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 years old. Our preschool class takes what the children have learned in our Tiny Toons class and expands on it. They begin writing their names and all capital letter as well as numbers 1-10, they start cutting with scissors, are given "jobs" around the class to teach responsibility and learn how to work together and follow directions. Potty training does continue in this class if it has not been completed in the Tiny Toons.
Our Pre-K1 class is for children 3 1/2 till 4 1/2 years old. During their time in this class the children will be exposed to a full prek curriculum. They will continue to learn how to write all of the letter, both capital and lower case, they will learn numbers 1-20, they have show and tell every week to encourage speaking in front of others, they have arts and crafts, music, science, social studies, story time and free time to still be a kid. All children must be potty trained prior to entering this class.
Our Pre-K2 class is for children 4 1/2 till 5 1/2 years old. In this class we spend our time prepping your child for kindergarten. We teach them all of the social, emotional and educational skills they will need to insure a smooth transition into kindergarten. Our program is with activities focused on developing independent self-help skills, simple problem solving, verbalizing needs and wants, appropriate manners and kindergarten-readiness skills. Our goal is to make sure your child can walk into their kindergarten class having all of the skills needed to have a great 1st year of school.
We have 2 infant rooms in our Westwood Location, the Jellybeans and the Cupcakes. In both rooms our staff are experienced and caring people. Our goal is to provide you with a safe, caring, and clean environment for you child.
Below is a little detail about each infant room, but please stop in for a tour to really experience what a beautiful program it is.
Children in this class range from 6 weeks until they are 18 months. They are divided into 2 separate classrooms so the staff can work with them on the skills that are age appropriate. All staff follow the parents schedule with the baby.
Toddlers are full of activity, energy, and questions. Our teachers support the toddlers by providing many learning opportunities through play. The classroom is set up in areas that spark interest in the children to continue learning and asking more questions. They experiment with toys to find answers.
They learn social skills as they play with the other children. Through songs, books, and games they increase their language skills.
Toddlers are given many opportunities to develop large and small motor skills through indoor and outdoor activities.
Curiosity at this age is blooming, and our teachers encourage the children's natural desire to explore and learn new things every day.
You will receive verbal and written reports each day regarding your child's nap, feeding times, diaper changes and special interests, as well as new behaviors and learned skills.
