Programs / Preschool Full Day Care
We are very proud of what we offer throughout our school, but particularly feel that our Pre-K kids go off to the Lawrence public schools extremely well prepared. We utilize the Creative Curriculum program, which helps dictate room arrangements and interest areas that are quite varied. The program is portfolio based so we focus lesson plans on specific targeted areas of development and three times a year hold parent/teacher conferences so you can track your child’s development with us. Each preschool classroom, for 3-5 year olds, has activities in art, science, blocks, math & manipulatives, literacy, cooking, sand & water, toys & games, and dramatic play. We are lucky to be the only school in Lawrence with an indoor climbing structure so that our children get to build gross motor skills and exercise year around, regardless of the extreme Kansas weather.
In addition, we use the Animated Alphabet Literacy curriculum as does the Lawrence public schools. This is the curriculum in place at USD 497 for introducing the alphabet to incoming kindergarteners. We introduce it in our preschool so that our children are a step ahead when they enter the public school system. We also teach Handwriting without Tears, another curriculum program used by USD 497. The special curriculum we offer at Googols includes sign language, Spanish, science, and social etiquette, even a manners program! The preschool classrooms offer both full and part time options. The sum of all these varied curricula is a whole child approach which addresses the development of the young child not only cognitively but, socially, emotionally, and physically as well. We’ll make sure your child is completely ready to be successful in grade school.
Rates are monthly and we do have tuition assistance programs. Please call with any questions, 856-6002.
