We’re About The Little People…
We are very fortunate to have such a wonderful, experienced, and caring staff here at Guilford Park. Our turnover rate is very low, but because our teachers are professionals, there may come a time when one of them will decide to return to a full-time position.
We provide opportunities to explore, read, sing, create and practice independence in the classroom.
We have very engaged parents at our preschool and we welcome you to our school.
We offer classes from 3 months of age through your child’s Pre-K year.
Meet Our Teachers
All classes attend 9:00am – 1:00pm
Our Crib Room is composed of 8 babies and 2 teachers. Babies can attend 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 days a week. Our goal is to provide an environment where babies can feel very secure and loved. We create a classroom full of music, toys, sensory, exploration, and books.
Our Toddler Class is composed of 10 toddlers and 2 teachers. We provide opportunities for toddlers to learn social skills, experience creativity, participate in language exploration, and practice gross motor skills. Toddlers learn the world is exciting and fun-filled.
Our two‑year‑old class is composed of 12 children to 2 teachers. We provide opportunities to explore, read, sing, create and practice independence in the classroom. The two year olds participate in painting, storytelling, singing, and dancing. We offer a play enriched environment while at the same time integrating developmentally appropriate readiness skills incorporated within the child’s play.
Our three year old class is composed of 12 children and 2 teachers. This classroom is very exciting. Language has been mastered, fine motor skills are being sharpened, gross motor skills are constantly used, and memorization pre‑emergent reading and writing all come together. The children are gently encouraged to rise to the next level of development by working together in learning and play centers as well as with individual attention from the teachers. We are beginning the building of readiness skills needed for objectives that will be introduced in the Pre-K Classes.
Each Pre-K class is composed of 15 children and 2 teachers. These classes are preparing your child for Kindergarten. We offer a literacy-rich environment building pre-reading skills through daily activities in phonemic awareness and print concepts. Additionally, important early math concepts are taught through a variety of hands-on activities. Each classroom is a sensory-enriched environment giving the children many opportunities for discovery through cause and effect.
