Philosophy

Wesleyan School is dedicated to a developmentally appropriate hands-on learning program.  We provide a balanced early childhood program that incorporates all four areas of child development; social, emotional, physical and intellectual.  Through real experiences we strive to provide the skills your child will need when they enter kindergarten, in the way that young children learn best.

Small classes provide opportunities for a close relationship between the teacher and student.  In our program children are encouraged to become involved in various learning activities which include:

  • Developing manipulative, fine motor skills with a variety of materials
  • Play and socialization with others
  • Creative art activities
  • Simple group games
  • Large muscle activities (indoors & outdoors)
  • Literature intensive curriculum
  • Use of songs, poetry and rhythm instruments to help develop literacy and phonemic awareness.
  • Science experiments and environmental activities
  • Field trips
  • Reading,writing and math readiness skills
  • Social Studies and community helpers
