Seahorse Classroom (Preschool)

  1. When is my child ready for the Seahorse classroom?  When determining preschool class readiness there are a few defining factors: Your child is at least two and half years of age and actively potty training.  Your child is ready to start learning to recognize letters and numbers and engages in social play.  Your child can sit independently at the table while eating or working on an activity.
  2. What am I expected to provide for my child?  Parents are responsible for providing pull-ups and baby wipes if their child is still potty training, as well as an extra set of clothes, naptime blanket, naptime mat (you may purchase one for the school if you prefer), a water bottle, and a packed lunch from home each day.  Kids Cove provides the morning snack and the afternoon snack.
  3. What does the daily schedule look like? Some days may vary slightly depending upon the needs of the day within each classroom, but a typical day in our Seahorse classroom looks like this:

  • What will my child learn during their time in the Seahorse classroom?  We spend time tracing straight lines and curved lines and eventually letters while learning to recognize letters and numbers.  Bible stories are a regular part of our curriculum.  In all of our classrooms we focus on learning about being kind and caring towards one another, and working out our differences using kind words and taking turns.  We spend a lot of time getting our hands dirty with lots of artwork, crafts, sensory activities as well as hands on math and science activities.  And of course, the most important learning of all at this age, lots of imaginative play!
