Preschool Program

The Preschool Program at Marina View Preschool is for children ages 2.9 to 4 years. To be enrolled in this program your child must be fully potty trained, his/hers language skills adequately developed, and he/she is able to understand and follow directions. The teacher to student ratio in the preschool class is 1:12.

  • The emphasis of this program is on providing a foundation for positive self-image and providing developmentally appropriate cognitive instruction and exploration.

  • Our Preschool Program encourages and promotes a healthy balance of developmental and academic readiness. Through classroom instruction in teacher-led and child initiated activities, children are able to work in large groups, small groups, and independently of one another.

  • Children learn at their own pace and are encouraged to follow their own interest. Children have a choice of materials and a freedom of movement in the classroom. However, freedom is directly related to their ability to use these materials with self-discipline.

  • Language development, listening skills, and fine and gross motor skills are an integral part of the daily curriculum.

  • Children spend a portion of their day rotating through Learning Centers which are set up in their classroom.

  • They also participate in Morning Circle Time, Music and Movement, Art, Outside Play Time, and Science activities that are based on the weekly curriculum.

  • Children are also introduced to Spanish and Mandarin.

  • Parents are given a weekly report on Friday. The “Weekly Preschool Report” outlines the activities that your preschooler participated in.
