The Madison Consolidated Preschool, Deputy Elementary school location, strives to create a safe, nurturing, educational, and developmentally appropriate learning environment that meets the individual needs of our students. Students at the preschool learn through play in a developmentally appropriate and inclusive learning environments while developing school readiness skills.
The teachers at our preschool implement the Creative Curriculum for Preschool in their classrooms to teach social skills, math and reading readiness skills, science and social studies concepts, and health and nutritional practices. The curriculum balances both teacher directed and child initiated learning, with an emphasis on responding to children's learning styles and building on their strengths and interests. We also implement Everyday Mathematics PreK and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) instruction at the preschool in order to align our curriculum with district programming.
Our staff views education as a partnership between the students, parents, and teachers. We believe it is essential to develop a good rapport with our families based on open communication and mutual respect. This is the foundation of a successful school experience. Through this partnership, students will learn to self monitor and manage their own behaviors in a variety of situations that will allow them to make decisions, solve problems, and demonstrate positive social interactions with their peers. It is our sincere hope that each child will develop a positive outlook towards school, build strong and lasting friendships, gain an appreciation of the World around them, and acquire a lifelong love for learning!
Our mission is to educate all children to reach their potential by providing our students with a high quality early childhood experience. We strive to create a safe, nurturing, educational, and developmentally appropriate learning environment through a partnership with our students, families, and community.
