Aldersgate is a play-based, developmentally appropriate preschool. Our curriculum is based on an approach known as emergent learning. Classrooms are set up with "learning center" which encourages curiosity and exploration. Emergent curriculum is a way of planning lessons based on the children's interests and passion. Children learn best when their interests are captured.
Students participate in a variety of activities during their day including circle time, concept/story time, music, art , math, science, snack, free play and both indoor and outdoor play time.
ACP Teachers have credentials either in Education or Early Childhood Education and extensive experience working with preschool age children.
Aldersgate Christian Preschool offers several diferent options for each of the age groups. Add A Friday and Extended Day options are available for all classes that are not already scheduled during their running times. These are fun ways to continue curriculum offered with an additional emphasis on science, math, movement and drama. Please note these offerrings may be with a different teacher.
