Imagine That Childcare

Where children are encouraged to

explore, experience, discover and grow!


Room Objectives

Preschool (3-5 Years)

Imagine That Childcare believes that learning at this age takes place through play, touch, manipulation and experimentation.

We believe in the importance of providing children with many opportunities to learn about the world around them to stimulate both their growth and development.

Our teachers plan weekly and monthly theme-related activities appropriate to the interests and abilities of the children in our preschool program.

Our objectives in the Preschool Room:

  • Enhance auditory and memory by characterizing alike and different words, rhyming games and retelling stories in sequence.
  • Promote community and social skills by encouraging cooperating, helping, negotiating and integrating positive guidance to solve interpersonal problems.
  • Imaginative development through dramatization, creative storytelling and role playing.
  • Science exploration including planting a garden, weather, experiments and activities.
  • Enhance fine motor skills through a variety of puzzles, constructions sets and art materials. Art materials will include scissors, glue, markers and crayons.
  • Introducing early childhood math concepts through classifying, sorting, patterning and number recognition.
  • Promote expression through art and music with emphasis on both cultural and intellectual growth.
  • Provide an adequate amount of free and outdoor play to ensure happy preschoolers each day!
