Our Preschool

Sandhurst Co-op seeks to provide an opportunity for children to learn, through play, about themselves, their physical world, and how to interact socially with peers and adults. Preschool provides time for children to develop:

  • Emotional skills
  • Communication skills
  • Creative skills
  • Physical skills
  • Self-help skills

Children are naturally curious about things that interest them. We provide developmentally appropriate activities in the following areas so they can practice:

  • Art
  • Blocks
  • Snack
  • Dramatic play
  • Large motor
  • Manipulatives
  • Literacy
  • Emotional and social coaching

As part of our program, parents work with the teacher and parent educator to enhance the experience of every child. Adults in our program:

  • Value children’s play and learning
  • Create a safe environment to practice skills
  • Provide positive role modeling

We emphasize process over product and believe that learning skills take practice and patience. As a community we all learn together.
