2017-2018 Discovery Time Preschool Teacher: Ms. Kirsten Johnson
Discovery Time Preschool
The Redwood Area School District will once again be offering a Discovery Time preschool program for children who are three by September 1.
The goals of Discovery Time are to provide young children with opportunities to explore their world and to obtain knowledge and confidence in their growing abilities. It has been said that the work of young children is their play. The curriculum will be designed with that in mind and for a portion of each day children will be involved in free choice/play. During this time the children will be given the opportunity to choose from and participate in a variety of activities in the room. The structure is provided in the planning of the activities rather than in the child’s selection of activities. There will be opportunities for social interaction with adults and peers, large motor activities inside and outside, dramatic play, creative projects, and language development through songs, finger plays, and stories.
The cost of the program will be $55 per month. In addition, there will be a one-time non-refundable $30 registration fee. Classes will meet twice a week in their classroom in the Ehler's Early Childhood Center at the Reede Gray School. There will be an orientation prior to the first day of Discovery Time.
Classes will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Registration may take place by mail or at the Early Childhood office.
If you have questions or need more information, please call the Early Childhood office at 507-644-8939.
Discovery Time Schedule for 2018-2019 will be as follows:
Monday and Wednesday: 8:15-10:30 am
Tuesday and Thursday: 8:15-10:30 am or 3:15-5:30 pm.
