Progress Community Preschool

The school is located at the Park Street entrance of the Progress-Immanuel Presbyterian Church, 3640 Ash St., in Harrisburg (Progress Area). We have been serving the community for over 30 years.

 

GOALS FOR 3 YEAR OLD CLASS

The main goal of the 3-year-old program is to provide a safe and caring environment where the children will learn and grow in a positive way. Our staff want the children to feel comfortable to explore and express themselves through the many projects and activities planned throughout the year. At this age, children learn through play and hands on activities. The children will have many opportunities to develop their language skills, small and large motor skills, and social skills through stories, music, games, finger plays, rhymes, movement activities, and art activities. They will be moving beyond themselves and families to learn to share and cooperate with other people in an organized program. For many children this is their first experience in school and we want the children to feel comfortable and happy away from their familiar surroundings. Finally, the staff hope the child will learn to love school and begin to develop a life-long love of learning.

GOALS FOR 4 YEAR OLD CLASS

The goals for the 4-year-old program are to provide a loving and caring environment for your child. Our first and last concern is with your child. The staff will teach from the simple to complex by building on previously learned skills. Each child will be allowed to learn and grow at his or her own pace. Skills will be reinforced with many hands-on and fun experiences in different contexts. Academic curriculum will be the focus. The teacher will focus on small and large motor skills, writing names, preparation for reading, math, science, cooking, and recognition of letters and sounds, with lots of art projects that coordinate with the lesson plan for a particular day. By the end of their preschool experience, we hope we will have expanded a child's learning to make the transition into kindergarten an easier and happy experience.
