GENERAL PROGRAM OF PALMETTO PRESCHOOL

Palmetto Presbyterian Preschool program offers full-time childcare for children from 6 weeks up to 5 years of age. Our greatest goal is to provide children with a foundation for their social, emotional, and mental development. This approach allows our qualified staff to provide first-hand education to your children.

STUDY CURRICULUM:

Our Preschool uses the "A-Beka" educational program for our entire Preschool, as well as, the "Wee-Learn" for infants and toddlers. Our K-3 and VPK uses the "Creative Curriculum System." These curriculums have been tested with very successful results. The "A-Beka" program contains an intensive application and mastery over phonetics and mathematics. The "A-Beka"  curriculum is highly respected for its standards of excellence in the arena published materials for Christian schools. The "Wee-Learn" curriculum stimulates our infants and toddlers to begin associating particular activities with principles and concepts they will begin to see and apply once they arrive in their respective pre-school classes. The "Creative Curriculum" encourages the student to individually discover the principles there are being taught through a series of classroom activities and manipulatives in order to further their learning experience. All of our classrooms are designed to facilitate the learning experience for children using a variety of educational tools consisting of auditory, visual, and tactile methods.
