Preschool

With an array of fun-filled learning centers, our preschool program focuses on building cognitive performance through child-initiated, cooperative play. Our teachers introduce these active and enthusiastic learners to a more structured curriculum and new academic concepts in language, literacy, mathematics and science. With a consistent daily schedule, classroom roles, meals in the Kids’ Cafe and focused enrichment classes, our three- and four-year-olds gain a sense of self-reliance and independence.

"We wanted our child to begin learning as early as possible. We were not looking for a baby sitter. We wanted her to be part of an educational program that helped her build social and learning skills at a very early age."

Charles Jenkins, TGS Parent

Program Highlights

DLM Early Childhood Express Curriculum icon

DLM Early Childhood Express Curriculum

The curriculum offers a comprehensive program that links connections in literacy, math, science, social studies, fine arts, health and safety, personal development, physical development and technology. With a careful balance of child-initiated play in the learning centers and teacher-directed lessons and group activities, your preschooler will gain an academic foundation and love of learning that he or she will carry into Kindergarten and beyond.

Handwriting Without Tears icon

Handwriting Without Tears

The goal of Handwriting Without Tears is to make legible, fluent handwriting an easy and automatic skill for all students. The curriculum uses multi-sensory techniques and consistent letter formation habits to teach handwriting at an early age. With this program, our teachers use instructional techniques and activities that are geared to help improve a child’s self-confidence, pencil grip, body awareness and posture.

Learning Centers icon

Learning Centers

Our three- and four-year-old classrooms not only feature a variety of seating spaces that encourage small group work and cooperative learning activities, but also use learning centers that allow children to explore any areas that interest them. Each center features such skills as language and reading, construction, home living, math, fine motor skills, computers, art, dramatic play, science and sensory exploration. Each area helps your children gain independence and further explore themes and concepts introduced in class with a hands-on, interactive approach.

Structured Environment icon

Structured Environment

In preschool, we begin to incorporate a more structured, consistent daily schedule and work on building a sense of responsibility and independence in our students. Children begin to wear school uniforms, take on leadership roles in the classroom and leave the classroom for enrichment class opportunities and for all meals in the Kids’ Cafe.

Enrichment Programs icon

Enrichment Programs

By the age of three, children can now take part in all enrichment classes offered on campus. These focused, small-group classes vary from school to school, but may include dance, computers, music and drama, foreign language, karate, sports skills or cooking. This is a chance for kids to begin to develop and show their personal interests under the guidance of skilled professionals.

Parent Communications icon

Parent Communications

We understand the importance of staying connected to your child while at school. With real-time daily updates, photos and notifications through our PreciouStatus emails and app, our teachers take time to communicate every piece of your child’s day. Through child assessments, phone calls and teacher/parent conferences, TGS enables and encourages our parents to be an active part of their child’s educational experience.
