Chatfield Preschool provides a stimulating environment which allows children to grow socially, intellectually, emotionally, and physically. The Preschool program provides a variety of experiences and strives to meet the needs of each child.
Preschool operates under four basic principles.
1) Each child is an individual and develops at his or her own pace.
2) A child’s work is his/her play and children learn by doing.
3) Every child should have access to the preschool experience.
4) Parents play a key role in the education of a child.
Preschool teachers set up intentional play and activities that support the theme, vocabulary, and goals for the session. Children are busy with blocks, puzzles, sensory tables, and dramatic play. They try their hands at science experiments and art projects. Students are engaged in circle times, which include music, stories, morning messages, and more!
Chatfield preschool offers morning and full day classes. The 3 & 4 Year Old classes are 2 days each week. Options for 4 & 5 Year Olds are either two-day or three-day classes. Pre-K Valleyland is available for childcare in the mornings, 6-8 a.m. and afternoons, 2:45-6 p.m. Valleyland is available only on the days that the child attends preschool.
Registration opens in March and you can find the registration form on our online store.
