Williamstown Elementary Preschool Program
Our preschool program is a play based program using Creative Curriculum, The Vermont Early Learning Standards and our students' interests to design our learning environment and guide our curriculum. Our classroom is set up with 7 centers; Library, Art, Blocks, Pretend, Toys and Games, Sensory, and Discovery. The materials in our centers are chosen to help our preschoolers build their skills while providing opportunites to build language and practice social skills. Our centers change with the seasons and with our learning themes. Circle Time is a favorite time of day when we come together to share in stories, songs, and games. We interact with new concepts, practice skills, and make crafts during Table Time activities and we love to go outside everyday.
Our preschool team (teachers, teacher assistants, special educators, and speech language pathologist) work closely together and with families to support the learning of every preschool kiddo.
Preschool sessions are half days Tuesday - Friday.
Specials - Our preschoolers are visited by our specialists (Art, Library, Music, & Wellness) for class once each month (one special per week).
Story Time - Our librarian from Williamstown's Ainsworth Public Library visits us for Story Time each month.
Family Outings - Preschoolers and their families are invited to join their teachers in fun and educational activities outside of the school day several times during the year. Some examples are apple picking, Montshire Museum trip, fire house visit, nature walk/scavenger hunt, and Dabble Day.
