Preschool

Academic components of our preschool program are built into our structured play based curriculum in a manner consistent with the developmental age of each child. Children in our preschool program are introduced to shorter periods of structured academic time in preparation for their transition to the Kindergarten Preparatory Program. Pal’s teachers introduce preschool children to the academic setting and progressively build upon the beginning skills learned in their toddler years. Literacy, math, science, health, the social sciences and physical education are all integrated into our daily program both through play and structured academic time. Children become increasingly interactive with one another at this stage of development and teachers arrange the daily environment to help the children form healthy bonds of friendship with their classmates.

Make Summer Safe for Kids!!!

Beat the heat and sun

Heat-related illness happens when the body’s temperature control system is overloaded. Infants and children up to 4 years of age are at greatest risk. Even young and healthy people can get sick from the heat if they participate in strenuous physical activities during hot weather. For heat-related illness, the best defense is prevention.

  • Never leave infants, children, or pets in a parked car, even if the windows are cracked open.
  • Dress infants and children in loose, lightweight, light-colored clothing.
  • Schedule outdoor activities carefully, for morning and evening hours.
  • Stay cool with cool showers or baths.
  • Seek medical care immediate if your child has symptoms of heat-related illness.

Just a few serious sunburns can increase you and your child’s risk of skin cancer later in life. Their skin needs protection from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays whenever they’re outdoors.

  • Cover up. Clothing that covers your and your child’s skin helps protect against UV rays.
  • Use sunscreen with at least SPF (sun protection factor) 15 and UVA (ultraviolet A) and UVB (ultraviolet B) protection every time you and your child go outside.
