Preschool

In the first few years of life, 700 new neural connections are formed every second in a child’s brain. These are the connections that build the foundation upon which all learning, behavior, and health depend. This is why Rocky Mountain Preschool provides preschoolers with a healthy environment in which to learn and grow.

Daily Activities

In our preschool classrooms, children are asked to start following simple class rules, routines and directions. Activities have well defined spaces and focus on different subjects, like math and science. Each day your child will use props for imaginative play, art projects that involve the use of scissors and glue and music and movement time where children sing and dance as they get their wiggles out!

  • Well defined activities with focus on subjects like math and science
  • Imaginative play and art projects
  • Music and dance time

Curriculum

Preschoolers like to ask a lot of questions and they use their imaginations and creativity to express their ideas in many ways. Our teachers try to ask kids questions that apply to real problems and talk with them about different approaches to solving problems. As preschoolers begin to handle their impulses and feelings better, our teachers use a rewards system that reinforces positive behavior and encourages making good choices.

Our teachers also use iStartSmart – A revolutionary curriculum on our tablets and smart boards that teaches kindergarten readiness skills through digital activities that are fun and interactive. Your child’s progress is trackable so teachers can focus their attention on the areas that your child needs extra help with.

  • Rewards system to reinforce positive behaviors and making good choices
  • Fun and interactive digital activities through iSmartStart
  • Track your child’s progress with iSmartStart

Communication

Trusting someone else with your child can be scary but being able to learn about your child’s day can set your mind at ease. Kangarootime is our parent communication app where you can see what teachers are charting about your child in real time like feedings, nap times and selfies! When you come to pick up your child you will also receive a report of all the day’s activities and notes about what happened. Our infant teachers also have a cell phone that you can text or call anytime to speak directly with the person holding your precious baby.

  • An app to get real-time updates on feedings, nap time, and selfies!
  • Daily activity report and notes
  • Direct access to teachers via cell phones

“They treat the Children like their own. I would never doubt their judgment. They screen and make sure all the teachers are mature and friendly. I would trust them with my kids any day!”
