PRESCHOOL | PLAYING IS LEARNING
Preschool at Bethany consists of our oldest 2 to 3 year old students. Much of the learning at this developmental stage is done through play, but children also listen to poetry and songs which are the building blocks needed to grasp phonics and foster early reading skills. At this stage, writing is rudimentary but there are plenty of opportunities given to practice. Students are introduced to the alphabet and are learning to recognize letters and the sounds they make. Scissors are introduced and lots of fun is had by "cutting" Play-Doh.
Benchmarks have been established and are worked on throughout the year.
