The primary emphasis of the program is designed to nurture a child's cognitive, social and emotional development and to enhance physical capabilities and learning potentials. The focus is on the overall growth and development of each individual child to help them realize their full potential. This is important in relation to himself/herself as an individual as well as in their relation to other children.
We offer a play-oriented curriculum for the preschool child. Research affirms that children learn most effectively through a concrete, hands on approach. The classroom is thoughtfully and purposefully organized for the child to choose a wide variety of activities that promote emotional, social, and cognitive growth.
A typical day at Lookout Mountain Preschool includes fun in the dramatic play areas, creating artistic masterpieces at the easel, one-on-one directed learning with the teachers, social interaction with peers, music, gross and fine motor activities, excitement in the math and science centers, and books coming to life in the classroom!
