3-Year Playschool

Meet the Teachers…

 

 

 

Our 3-year class is taught by Mrs. Jennifer Cranford and Mrs. Cindy Odum.  Both are new teachers to our program this year, however they bring with them a wealth of experience in working with children.  Mrs. Jennifer taught Kindergarten for ten years and first grade for one.  She has a Masters degree in Christian education.  Mrs. Jennifer and her husband Cory have four children of their own.  Mrs. Cindy teaches 2-3 year old Sunday school at her church and has been a substitute teacher at her children’s school for many years.  She and her husband Bryan have two children.  Both are excited to be in the classroom with our 3-year olds.

Our Program…

Our 3-year program runs from September until the end of May and meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9am-12pm.  Currently we have 13 students.  Since 3-year Playschool is most children’s first experience in a structured program, our primary focus is socialization, teaching routine, and basic shapes and colors.  Each month we have a color and shape focus around which our activities revolve.  Beginning in January, we also start emphasizing numbers and introduce the children to scissors.  We have a weekly chapel time led by our pastors that teaches simple bible stories and lessons and usually includes singing.  We love and nurture each child while preparing him/her for the 4-year Playschool program.

4-Year Playschool

Meet the Teachers…

Our 4-year-old Playschool program is taught by Mrs. Amy Ehrhardt and Mrs. Tina Phillips.  This is Amy’s 12th year of teaching Playschool.  Tina has been assisting for the past 10 years.  Amy is a former public school teacher with Guilford County Schools.  She is a mother to 4 children, ranging in ages from 12-19.  Mrs. Tina graduated from UNC-G with a degree in biology and worked at LabCorp before becoming a full time stay at home mom to her daughter Reagan.

Our Program…

The four year program runs from September until the end of May and meets on Mondays and Fridays from 9am-12 pm.  We meet on Wednesdays from 9am-1 pm and the children stay for lunch.  Currently we have 15 students.  Our primary goal for the 4-year program is to prepare the children to enter Kindergarten.  We focus extensively on letter recognition and letter sounds.  We spend one week on each letter of the alphabet.  We also have special celebrations for holidays such as a Pilgrim and Indian feast at Thanksgiving.  We believe that children learn through both play and experiences.  We take many field trips throughout the year to give children experiences they might not otherwise have.  This year we have visited a dairy, gone to the fire station, and taken an Amtrak train ride.  In the spring of the year, we do a series of swimming lessons through the YMCA.   Being a Christian preschool, we have a weekly chapel time taught by our pastors where children learn about various people in the bible and Christian concepts such as loving others, sharing, helping those in need, and sharing God’s love.  Additionally, we work on number recognition, calendar concepts, handwriting, and learning one’s name.  We try to love and nurture each child in this first school experience as he/she grows and develops.
