Gross motor development is a vital part of growing up! At The Weekday
Preschool we incorporate a variety of age-appropriate skills to help
the child master those sequential challenges essential to proper child
development. Skipping, galloping, crawling, twisting, stopping, changing
direction, left to right progression, running and dancing are just a
few of the activities in which we engage each child. The low
teacher-child ratio allows for concentrated individualized instruction
and encouragement as the child accomplishes each of these tasks.
Sing Along with Me!
Music is a very important part of the overall early childhood
experience at The Weekday Preschool. Research has shown a dramatic
relationship between a child's exposure to music and early brain
development. Children are exposed to an appreciation of music, while
being introduced to developmentally age-appropriate skills to help make
music an enjoyable part of their day. Each child will perform at two
music programs during the year, and learn a variety of songs
incorporated into the overall program curriculum.
Our "chapel" experience allows each child an opportunity to express
reverence and respect during this sanctuary time. Basic character
development traits such as honesty, responsibility, encouragement,

introduced and discussed. A variety of Bible verses and stories are
shared throughout the year.
