The Sonshine Patch uses a developmentally appropriate curriculum when planning for our preschool program based on the South Dakota Early Learning Guidelines. The preschool teachers at the Sonshine Patch use these standards in planning day to day activities that provide for social emotional development, language and literacy development, health and physical development, exposure to math, science, social studies, and creative arts.
Activities planned are based on weekly themes throughout the year using a hands-on, child centered approach in planning developmentally appropriate activities.
The activities allow children to learn or enhance their skills. A variety of playtime experiences including time for physical play, and sensory experiences encourage the children to develop and use their physical, social, emotional, communication, and creativity skills.
LEARNING CENTERS are used in each preschool root and provide opportunities for the children to experiment, observe, explore, identify, communicate, and create.
Letters will be introduced each week for the 4-5 yr olds through visual and hands-on activities. Shapes, numbers, and colors will be integrated within the themes.
