Your child explores the world with Blue Skies! 

Blue Skies pre-k science center

Our Science area is always a big hit!

At Blue Skies Exploration Academy, our Pre-Kindergarten environment facilitates the development of cognitive, language, math, science, and social skills.

We help your child solidify their knowledge base for kindergarten readiness. The skills of questioning, hypothesizing, exploring, and problem solving are the main focus of our Pre-Kindergarten program.

Your child has fun learning while they perform unique investigations on gravity, buoyancy, color and light and many other topics.

We embed academic kindergarten readiness skills into our curriculum. Plus they have ample opportunity to express their creativity in our Art Studio!

Key Features of the Preschool/ Pre-K Rooms:

  • Parents receive daily communication notes
  • Teachers work with the children to learn how to follow classroom rules and work within the structure of a classroom environment.
  • Early Learning skills such as ABC’s and 123’s are addressed naturally each day
  • Social skills and expressing emotions are a big focus of each day as our friends learn to share, cooperate and negotiate with one another
  • Scientific explorations lead to new discoveries as well as a chance for individualized embedded academic instruction
  • Natural and re-purposed materials are used frequently to teach children creativity and inspire them to create toys, art and activities
  • Outdoor education and environmental stewardship is extended year long with the use of our new greenhouse and flower gardens, the outdoor classroom, rabbit habitat, worm composting, vegetable composter, and garden beds!

Why is Reggio Emilia Education Important for 4-5 year olds?

Reggio Emilia is a philosophy that highly values the teacher and parents focusing on what the child needs “right now” in order to continue to grow and develop.

Reggio Emilia inspired learning centers all look different from each other because the philosophy demands the teachers meet the needs of the children and families in their care instead of insisting that the child and family conform to the philosophy.

All children are young scientists constantly exploring the world around them. They study, experiment, hypothesize, evaluate, and explore every day. The Reggio Emilia philosophy has the teachers observe what each child is interested in and then find a common theme which the children can “study”.

The teacher then builds in pre-math, pre-literacy skills, stories, music and movement into the overarching unit of study to help the children learn about the world around them.

Four and five year olds are eager to learn new things especially those of their own choosing. By letting the children decide on the course of their education we are promoting self motivation and encouraging life-long learning.

Our students are regularly given time for exploration in our art studio. Our studio teacher aims to support the growth of each child through fine arts, music, theater and dance. The preschool curriculum is linked to the children’s studio experience.
