Levels of Preschool

Guest Author - Alissa Moy

Levels of a preschool classroom can be crucial for individualized child instruction. In many preschool settings and schools several levels of education can be found. Here is a basis for many of the institutions, along with a description of what specific learning will occur for the level:

Early Preschool-ages 1˝ - 2˝ years old

Each child’s development is unique, and this growth will be facilitated in a typical Early Preschool Class. Children are given opportunities to develop their language skills by following simple directions and many common phrases are used in routine situations. At this age children will pick up most parts of speech to form complete sentences. Learning at this level can help preschoolers to enjoy reading, by hearing stories and participating in storytime play. Children will also be exposed to the concepts of size and quantity, while learning how to recognize patterns, complete puzzles using their gross motor skills , by kicking a ball forward, catching a rolled ball and learning how to throw a ball overhand. Songs, finger play activities, art projects like pounding and squeezing clay will be explored daily in this environment. As opposed to day care, this early learning setting can be a boon for your preschooler's early child development.

Preschool- ages 2˝ - 3˝ years old

Look for a balanced program which addresses the child as a whole, supporting social, emotional, and cognitive growth. Experiences of socialization, sharing, making friends and interacting cooperatively are crucial for this program. It is a time for children to explore using all their senses and master language development and communication. Hands on math, simple science experiments and daily reading with group discussion are offered.

Pre-Kindergarten- ages 3˝ - 5 years old

The emphasis in this program is in providing children with the necessary tools to be fully prepared for school. Science, Music and Visual Arts, Math, Reading, Language Arts and Physical Education are all subjects covered daily. Children will also engage in long term and short term projects, either sparked by their interest or through a well planned year long curriculum provided by teachers. They are encouraged to work collaboratively and independently.

The above leveling of programs for your preschooler is a wonderful way to individualize your child's educational base. The idea of age groupings can be essential for comprehensive and age appropriate learning. Check with your local area educational settings to inquire if they offer these leveled programs.
