Early Childhood Education

Each day at the Walpole Village School, our preschool and pre-k children enjoy circle time, where we discuss the calendar, weather, learn about the seasons, the alphabet and numbers. The current weekly theme is discussed and stories/songs are taught. We offer a dramatic play area that transforms throughout the year giving children access to a play grocery store, travel agency, and even outer space. Other classroom areas include: a dress-up area, a kitchen area complete with child size table and chairs, a science area, an art center, a block area, puzzles and manipulatives, a train table and much more.

Our curriculum is built on weekly themes where children dive into learning by making themed connections through reading, hands-on arts and crafts projects and exploratory play. We incorporate field trips when appropriate and as they relate to our themes. We aim for our curriculum to be timely and relevant to the season, the age, and the environment. For example, we are just finishing up a unit that explores the Winter Olympics. Our pre-k children do weekly science experiments and keep a weekly journal. This journal will help the children, as well as their parents, understand the growth and development throughout the year.

Fall 2016 classes start the same day as Fall Mountain Regional District on Aug. 30th.

Please join us for our Open House to meet the teachers, visit the school and meet our other friends. Open house is Thurs, May 12 at 5:30pm at the school.
