Preschool Program

To provide the right environment for children, we first believe that we must create a safe and healthy environment. Our safe settings are inviting and encourage a child to explore their surroundings at his/her own pace. Children will be encouraged to make his or her choices throughout the day and are directed with positive teacher guidance. This learning environment is tucked into the "play day" and based on child-approved themes in a room enriched with photos that reflect different families, abilities and everyday life. Your child's room must be warm and loving, creating the kind of atmosphere that feels safe and welcoming for the whole family and inclusive of a variety of safe and approved toys. We believe in appropriate physical settings that include large areas to move about as well as places for the child to "get away" and have some time alone if he/she chooses. Red Balloon Early Learning Centers are flexible, yet we balance indoor and outdoor activities, active and quiet times, and group and individual times.

For two, three, four and young five year old children, Creative Curriculum follows a daily format that matches the ever-changing needs of your rapidly developing child! Teachers plan and implement lessons that are specific to the educational and emotional goals of each individual child as well as the variety of interests and activity levels in the classroom.

The activities in Creative Curriculum meet learning objectives that will help your child move toward their potential as they explore and experiment with materials and activities in the classroom. Teachers act as facilitators of play and stay involved as they guide children's learning in play times at Red Balloon.
