Preschool Program at Discovery Center

Discovery Center's Pre-School Program is open to children 2 years to 6 years old.

Instruction

Playing trainsDiscovery Center follows a western approach to teaching young children. Throughout the morning, a combination of child-directed and teacher-directed activities are held. The focal word is activities as children in Discovery Center learn through doing, not through watching.

During “learning center time” the children progress through different learning centers with a teacher at each center to guide them. Records are kept on the progress of each child in each center. The materials themselves are the key to teaching the child. The teacher helps the children re-start previous activities, guides them in new activities and records their progress.

Sorting Colors For teacher-directed activities, the children are grouped according to age in groups of 8 to 12. One teacher and two assistant teachers work with each group. Activities include music, dance, art, story, drama, yoga, physical education, science, social awareness and cooking. There are 3 to 4 group activities per day.

Snack time

Cooking classes are held Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays wherein the teachers show the children how to make sandwiches, fruit salads, vegetable soup, cake, cookies and muffins. The children, under the guidance of their teachers, prepare the snacks.

Snacks on Tuesdays and Thursdays are prepared by the teaching staff: i.e., popcorn, savory biscuits, peanut butter on crackers, fruit, etc. Juice, milk or bottled water is served with all snacks. Bottled water is available throughout the morning.
