Psalm 127:3 states that “Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him.” As the Preschool Director of St. Aidan’s Preschool, I welcome all of you to St. Aidan’s Episcopal Preschool/MMO. As a former preschool teacher, an educator and a mother, I understand the role of a positive early childhood education.
Toddlers and preschoolers use all aspects of their environment for learning. Parents are an integral part of the early childhood education process. My goal for your child is to incorporate home and school as part of every day learning experiences. Children who feel good about themselves, their surroundings, and experiences will become active, happy learners.
Our private Pre-K provides children with the tools necessary for success! We provide a blended curriculum that utilizes Handwriting without Tears and Wee Learn. STEM activities play a big part in our daily lessons. We also teach Spanish and have weekly Bible lessons. Students will be exposed to literacy, science, math, writing and social skills. Our preschool creates a well-balanced program between play and academic skills, all at a much lower ratio than Georgia Pre-K programs.
New this year – We are going to offer a private Kindergarten program! Our Kindergarten class will offer a certified teacher and standards that will meet the Georgia Standards of Excellence. Our curriculum will include Zoo Phonics, Handwriting without Tears and Singapore Math. The classroom will have a limited number of students and low class ratios. We have incorporated many changes to our procedures in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. Some of the changes you will see are:
Temperature checks every morning for staff & children.
No parents entering the building unless absolutely necessary.
Staff will wear masks; it is not required for children 3 & up but encouraged.
Staff will be wearing gloves during snack/lunch and bathroom times.
The school will have a more detailed plan on cleaning & disinfecting.
Handwashing will be increased throughout the morning.
There will not be any intermingling of groups.
We will utilize the outdoors more by having some of our class activities
We will have a plan with procedures in place should any staff/child contract
With God’s guidance, my staff and I pledge to provide a high level of education where self-expression, acceptance, and love are an essential aspect of daily routines. Through play and hands-on activities, your child will have fun learning about himself/herself, as well as, being an important member of our school. I look forward to partnering with you, along your child’s academic journey.
