Preschool Program: 3-5 Year Olds


Ganon Early Childhood Center’s program for 3-5 year old is based around a play-based curriculum that focuses on getting your child prepared for elementary school. Our oldest students learn in a combined age classroom. This follows many current teaching philosophies that children can learn better when older students work with younger ones in a supportive environment. As with all ages in our school, the children enjoy a very rich group of activities to both educate and allow the kids to grow in a fun atmosphere.

Your 3-5 year old will never have a dull moment as a student at Ganon. Our experienced teachers prepare very thorough lesson plans based around themes. Many of the activities for a given week will center around the week’s theme; these can range from art projects to math games to quiet reading time. In addition to the academic curriculum, there are numerous special activities that are included as part of the tuition, something rare among local preschools. These include weekly music with a professional musician, large motor development classes and field trips. If you ask our students, they will no doubt tell you that the time enjoying our exceptional outdoor facilities are often the highlight of their day. We have a great selection of play structures and a very large open area for bike riding and ball games.
