Mansfield Children's Center
"Where Children Thrive"
The Morning Preschool Program serves children 3 to 4 years of age from 9:00am to 12:30pm Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Looking, touching, moving, questioning, exploring – Our curriculum and environment not only introduces our preschoolers to new skills, but also supports them in gaining a level of proficiency that builds confidence. Through large group, small group, and individual activities our teachers support the individual needs of each child by further challenging areas of strengths and scaffolding areas of growth.
Our teachers track our children’s progress within the domains of social-emotional, literacy, mathematics, artistic, and physical development through evidence-based portfolios received by the parents at the end of the year. Home activities are given to reinforce and expand on classroom lessons and support the parents’ role in their child’s academic experience. Throughout the year our parents are invited to attend performances and participate in events focused on specific skills being learned.
Our intimate personalized program set within our large school provides a wonderfully balanced experience for children attending school for the first time and their families with access to all our resources.
