It is Bascomb Preschool's commitment to promote the educational and spiritual development of young children in a Christian environment.
Since it is generally agreed by most child care experts that children learn by doing, it is the philosophy of Bascomb Preschool to operate as a ‘hands on’ school. In the daily routine of the classroom, teachers will provide direct experience and exploration of the environment in to provide active learning for the children.
Bascomb Preschool’s goal is to help your child grow in the following areas of development: cognitive, social/emotional, physical, and language. It is also our goal to prepare each child for kindergarten through the implementation of the Georgia Early Learning Development Standards which are a part of the Georgia Pre-K program. We use these standards with all of our students (birth through age 5). (http://www.gelds.decal.ga.gov/)
Our teachers work with the students on a level that is developmentally appropriate for their age level while maintaining a pace that is on par with the specifics needs of your child. We are able to to do this by keeping our class size and student-teacher ratio low, as well as having teachers that are certified and trained in .
- Four year classes use the ‘Let’s Begin with the Letter People’ curriculum (a program designed to teach phonics)
- Four year classes also use 'Handwriting without Tears' curriculum (a program designed to teach writing)
- The young fives’ class focuses on implementing the same standards used with children enrolled in Cherokee County. Our teacher is certified in Early Childhood Education.
- All of our students use a thematic and integrated approach.
