Preschool For 3's
A Typical Day:
Children in Preschool love the familiar activities of “morning circle”, and we start with this each day in Class. Weather, calendar, seasonal events and more are typical conversations that students have during this vital learning and sharing time. Weekly routines are structured around letters, numbers, and writing that are carried through the entire school environment.
Children at this private school are busy! Students rotate through five classrooms that focus on music, dance, theatre, art and academics.
Each class time is concentrated on skill building with age appropriate activities, and the teachers make it fun. The faculty is highly trained in their area of artistic discipline, and have a genuine love for this age group.
Daily Academics: Preschoolers develop writing skills daily through many subjects and activities. Math is an everyday experience for our preschoolers and helps them make sense of the world around them and teaches how to reason and problem-solve. Our weekly hands-on science experiments creates a desire to want to learn more and explore on their own.
Daily Music: Singing, movement and playing instruments come alive in our daily music class. Preschoolers will sing and move (or play instruments) at the same time to build the learning pathways in the brain. Movement, listening, vocal development and playing instruments are what students get to participate in during our daily music classes
Daily Theatre: Building confidence and imagination with stories, puppetry, poetry, dress up, terminology, speaking on a friendly stage, and every child gets a part with our age appropriate skits. We have real concrete learning with a host of acting and theatre skills appropriate for our students’ ages.
Daily Dance: A unisex program incorporating the techniques of jazz, tap, hip hop and ballet. Yes…We have LOTS of boys in our program! It begins with REAL dance shoes - jazz, tap and ballet shoes for each child. Dance is all about thinking, sending information from our brains to our bodies in an ordered way, sequencing, and remembering what comes “next”, plus of course listening to instruction and moving with the music.
Daily Art: This is not your typical water-color-tray type of art class! General learning about art and art history is included, centered around the seven elements of art that are line, shape, space, value, form, texture, patterns and color. We host two yearly art gallery shows for our students, where they have a chance to not only display and “unveil their masterpieces” but also tell us about the techniques and mediums they used for their creations.
Computer Technology: Students enjoy a variety of fun educational software including ABC Mouse educational apps.
Events: Our students showcase their knowledge of the arts throughout the school year. Our music concerts, art galleries, theatre skits, and dance performances with professional costumes allow families to see what their children are learning at Frisco Creative Arts Preschool! Plus all of the traditional seasonal school special activities that make it to our calendar of events!
The Frisco Creative Arts Preschool is a licensed child-care center and is located at the Frisco School of Music and Performing Arts, a premier private music and arts school in the area, at Preston and Main Street in Frisco.
