About San Lorenzo Community Church Preschool:
All children have freedom of movement and a free choice in each subject. All projects are easily accessible and hands on. When a child decides to choose a job in Language, Science or Math and they master the work of their choice, their self-esteem begins to blossom and mature. Therefore, each child’s desire to move forward is pruned with confidence and preparation to assist them in achieving higher levels of intellectual, social and creative growth.

The program planned for children in the classroom include:conceptual learning, grading objects according to size and shape like the cylinders, classification, sorting and matching, numbers, alphabet, literature, games like animal bingo, computers, Math, name tracing, creative art using a variety of mediums, etc. Workbooks are used when developmentally appropriate.
