Pre-K Learning Goals
At Toddler Town we believe that birth to 6 years are the most important in a child’s development. We also believe that being at a preschool with peers close to their own age helps children develop socially and emotionally as well as pushes them ahead academically.
Here are some goals we aim to meet or exceed with each child who attends Toddler Town. Having these set goals is key to helping each child achieve their fullest potential. We recognize that each child develops at their own pace and believe that giving them space and time while enriching their experiences promotes growth.
We look forward to being a positive influence in your child’s early learning experience.

Circle Time is one of the most important activities in a preschool classroom. At Toddler Town we believe that a well planned circle helps children with their mental, academic, physical as well as social development. Circle times don’t need to be long and boring but should be filled with usual circle time activities like calendar, weather etc. along with alphabet, phonics, counting, singing, dancing and interactive conversations! For a preschooler, it’s a great way to start their day and transition through activities!
Morning circle time will consist of talking about the calendar, weather, phonics, Letter of the week, counting, number games, reading, sight words and lots of singing and dancing!
During the midday circle time, we will take the opportunity to read to children to encourage their love for reading and spark their imagination.
To end their day on a very fun note, our afternoon circle time will be full of music, singing, games and of course reading!
To get our Pre K friends ready to succeed at school, they will have a part of their day dedicated to ‘work’. We will have them working on Math and Phonics workbooks, journals, along with tracing and handwriting worksheets. To make sure that work time doesn’t get boring and monotonous for them, we will alternate between these activities and add in some fun, game worksheets!
Preschoolers need to rest their bodies and minds just like we do, so it’s important to develop this healthy habit at a young age. During the quiet activities time period, they can choose from reading/looking at a book quietly or engaging in some quiet table activities such as coloring, cutting and pasting, puzzles etc.
We have learned the importance of Art in a young child’s day. It is not only important for boosting their creativity but also their brain development.
Art will be done everyday at Toddler Town and would involve creative, messy wet mediums like paint and glue! Teachers will also find ways to incorporate learning in art such as math, vocabulary and emotions. We will also be introducing directed drawing in our Pre K programs.
These would be activities that are guided by the teacher. Children will be placed in groups and offered small motor table activities, carpet activities, imaginative play etc.
Working in groups during these activities encourages peer cooperation and interaction as well as problem solving.
Science, Technology, Engineering and Math seem to be the future of our society! Why not introduce these subjects at an early age? Children will do S.T.E.M based activities everyday through art, table activities and experiments!
Children will participate in organized P.E activities everyday indoors and outside.
A homework packet will be sent home weekly for Pre K students. It’s not compulsory to finish and return the packet but it is highly recommended to establish healthy ‘future’ homework habits. Homework might be an activity that the student can do alone or could a family group project to encourage involvement.
