This past school year, our little ones at the EPP started their journey about learning how to become caring, responsible people in our ever changing world. We tackled some big words about character, but our goal was to make it real and meaningful to them. So, if you’ll remember, our October’s focus was on showing respect towards others as well as their belongings. November had us logically following with discussions about showing responsible behavior. The monthly calendar was filled with ideas for engendering responsibility with quick chores around the home. We moved into the month of December highlighting the concept of caring for others. Both EELC and FDR had drives to collect food, clothing, and toys for others who do not have enough during our traditional holidays. January had us talking about being true to your word and following it up with action. Throughout February, our focus turned to fairness and being able to listen to others and showing empathy and patience. Lastly, we focused on citizenship, but we did this one throughout the year by having our students recite our Pledge of Allegiance daily. At FDR, we chose mail carriers every week and they were responsible for delivering the daily mail from each classroom to the main office. At EELC, this is done through each classroom. Further, at EELC, the students will be planting flowers in the front of our school at the start of this month to brighten up our school for the spring season. This task will also require some responsible behavior as each class will have the added responsibility of watering their flowers throughout the season.
Our mission is to prepare each child to become increasingly independent, to maximize readiness for more formal school experiences, to encourage each child to become a life-long learner, and to engage the parents and guardians in their child’s educational experience.
Specifically, the Edison Township Preschool Program strives to:
Celebrate Your FamilyMay is National Personal Family History Month. Take some time out this month to talk about the importance of family. Help your child create a family tree and write down some facts about the members of your family. Display your family tree in a prominent place in your home.
