Petting Zoo Fun
We know it's important to get outside the classroom
Incorporating outside fun like chalk and bubbles is a great way to mix up the outdoor play activities
We take our PreK classes on field trips and love being able to give them tangible experience on what they've been learning. Here we went to HealthWorks! where the kids got to explore the health and anatomy in a unique way that built upon what they learned in the classroom.
Fall Nature Play
At TGCA, we know that nature play is important to a child's development.
Valentine's Sensory Play
Our kids love exploring through different sensory activities.
Connecting what's going on in the world around us with our daily activities helps kids form deeper connections with what they are learning.
Engaging in art projects in other ways than sitting at a table
Not only do we have a full fenced in playground, we have space for the kids to have gross motor play on those days the weather doesn't allow for going outdoors.
Tower Grove Park Field Trip
Having a relationship with Tower Grove Park and Botanical Gardens allows us extend our classrooms beyond our walls.
Going for a ride
Some of our younger ones may not be able to run and play like the older kids, but we have the ability to get them outside, in the fresh air and looking at the world and nature around them.
Our classes have circle time during the day where kids learn many skills like sitting, listening, cooperating, taking turns. It also gives teachers change to make learning things like letters, numbers, and seasons a time of fun and excitement.
As a Christian Preschool, we value teaching children pray and give thanks to God.
5th Grade Reading Time
Fifth Graders visit preschool classes to read to the kids in small groups. This not only helps the elementary students practice reading skills but gives the chance for children to learn and interact with others.
Math doesn't have be boring. We make learning fun by using activities that feel like play but teach the children foundational academics.
