During large group lesson time the teacher introduces new learning materials and curriculum themes, reviews and reinforces content covered in previous lessons and leads children in daily routines such as calendar time, weather and classroom job chart.
Small Group Lesson
Instructors provide activities that reinforce the development of literacy, math, and science skills. Children participate in hands-on table activities that introduce and develop skills needed to build a strong foundation in these key content areas.
The development of important literacy skills including reading, speaking, writing, and handwriting is further promoted. Instructors incorporate teaching techniques that focus on developing phonics skills. Instructors also incorporate music, reading, storytelling, dramatic play, and other fun, interactive teaching methods to accomplish these goals.
The combination of CATCH (Coordinated Approach to Child Health) Curriculum and opportunities for active play teaches children the importance of being active and making healthy food choices. To support the learning objectives of this program, children use various PRO Club facilities for the last hour of the day.
