As you know CPNS uses Teaching Strategies, The Creative Curriculum for Preschool as our curriculum of choice. Several of the 38 objectives for development and learning are associated with literacy. Preschooler’s literacy skills vary greatly in their abilities, and our teachers continue to provide the developmentally appropriate academics by challenging children and providing the achievable literacy experiences for each child. Literacy should be a source of enjoyment and for preschoolers connected to real life reasons to use their skills. Remember there are many phases of children’s writing that include letter like forms in scribble drawings to writing and drawing letters that begin to spell words.
You may have noticed, we have a new mailbox “Letters to Santa” next to our CPNS Panda bulletin board. Our teachers will provide materials for the children to write letters to Santa in our classrooms, and we are encouraging our families to do the same with the children at home. Just before Christmas, all the letters will be taken to Macy’s. Macy’s Believe Campaign will donate $1.00 to Make-A-Wish for every letter they receive. Not only will we be enhancing our children’s fine motor skills; we will also be donating to a beneficial cause. We are looking forward to filling our mailbox.
Please mark your calendars to attend our 2018-2019 Open House on January 24, 2018. You will have an opportunity to explore the many options our school has to offer. Don’t forget to tell your friends and neighbors about our developmentally appropriate academic Christian preschool. We don’t want anyone to miss the opportunity to give their children the strongest foundation for their child’s academic success.
If you are a church member, you will be able to register beginning on Tuesday, January 16, 2018. Please call Janice at (609)655-8663 or email her at CPNSchool@comcast.net for additional information.
