PRESCHOOL New


Horizons


Preschool Where Fun and Learning Grow Hand in Hand


COVID-19 FAQ’s for this program can be found at bataviaparks.org.


The New Horizons Preschool program is designed to provide an opportunity for social and


emotional growth as well as a beginning adjustment to a more formal school experience. The program is based on the philosophy that children learn more through play. Play provides opportunities for children of all abilities to participate in common activities, yet allows for success and mastery. This is paramount in the foundation of self-esteem and self-confidence.


A knowledgeable staff works together to provide a safe and happy environment. Children are encouraged to think independently, be creative, and freely explore in a structured atmosphere. Social skills, especially conflict resolution techniques, are emphasized. The use of manipulative and sand/water tables allow science and math skills to be practiced. Children learn to sort, match and quantify. They also learn problem-solving techniques, tolerance for frustration, the reward of trying an activity again and improving their skill.


Language, listening and speaking activities are practiced daily through stories, music, finger plays, story writing, and dictation. Art and sensory activities focus on the process, not the perfect end product, allowing for freedom of expression and choice. This is essential for the child’s self-esteem. Information on the activities within the classroom is conveyed to the parent through weekly flyers and monthly newsletters. Parent involvement in the classroom is encouraged!


The New Horizons school year runs from the early September to the end of May. If snow days are used during the school year, those days will not be made up.


Our “The Young 3’s” program is geared toward having a successful first school/away-from-parent experience. Emphasis is placed on socialization skills as well as building self-confidence and self-esteem. It is understood that not all children will be completely potty trained. Pull- ups will be allowed in this class only. In case of accidents, parents will be required to be available to change their child. Children must be 3 by January 1, 2021, to be in the Young 3-year-old program.


The Pre-Kindergarten class is designed to meet the needs of children who have late birthdays or may need a growth year. These children must be age 5 by January 1, 2021. Our curriculum will include activities in language, pre-reading, writing and alphabet exercises. We will provide hands on math, science explorations, cooking experiences and frequent field trips. The program will include small and large group work.


Instructors: Pam Sorenson, Deb Carlson, Kaylee Gallagher, Laurie Musielak, Heather Wnek, and Liz Czekajlo
