Huron Academy’s preschool program is offered Monday through Friday from 9:00am – 3:00pm. The program follows the K-8 calendar schedule, with a few minor exceptions. Children must be four years old by September first of the program year to attend.
Preschool Mission Statement
The mission of the Huron Academy Early Childhood Program is to provide each child with the opportunity to grow and learn in an environment that is nurturing, safe, and supportive in order to promote social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development.
Preschool Vision and Philosophy
We believe that each child should be an active participant in his or her learning and offer a variety of play-based, teacher-guided educational experiences to support each child at every stage of development. We provide each child the opportunity to think creatively and to make independent decisions in order to best prepare them for success in the classroom and beyond. Huron Academy is committed to providing a solid educational foundation and a lifelong love of learning from the beginning.
Curriculum and Daily Routine
Our typical daily routine will include the following:
Morning Message, Large Group, Small Group, Planning, Work Time, Clean up, Recall, Outside, and Snack/Meal Times
These components are all a part of our HighScope curriculum. In the HighScope Preschool Curriculum, learning is focused on the following eight content areas, which are based on the dimensions of school readiness identified by the National Education Goals Panel. HighScope's curriculum content areas are:
- Approaches to learning
- Social and emotional development
- Physical development and health
- Language, literacy, and communication
- Creative arts
- Science and technology
- Social studies
While learning in these content areas prepares children for later schooling, HighScope takes the learning process beyond traditional academic subjects by applying methods that promote independence, curiosity, decision-making, cooperation, persistence, creativity, and problem solving in young children.
