Play is a childs way of learning and growing. We encourage supervised play without interfering with the childs interests and actions. It is through meaningful, age-appropriate, creative play that children learn about themselves, their peers and their world. Children grow faster and learn more during the first five years of life than at any other time. It is the responsibility of those who guide young children to provide good learning situations. North Park Church Cooperative Preschool (NPCCP) is committed to providing this.
Hopping, jumping and dancing help children build large motor coordination skills. Stringing beads, cutting, drawing, or putting together a puzzle helps children to develop small muscle dexterity and eye-hand coordination. Children playing dress up and make-believe create situations that they can deal with and control; teaching them to work out their fears and anxieties. These activities promote social growth, sharing, problem solving, self control, exploration of sizes, shapes, distances, proportions and weight, concepts such as smaller than or bigger than, counting, classification, sorting and matching.
The variety of activities we offer gives children a feeling of satisfaction and joy. These positive feelings allow children to gain confidence in their skills and abilities, resulting in a strong self-concept. Play encourages positive outcomes, so lets encourage play. Play is the work of children!
NPCCP is a cooperative effort that cannot thrive without the time and talent of its students family members. Parents contribute daily in the classroom as volunteers aiding in every way from hand washing to crafts. Parents are encouraged to share their special talents, as well as their ideas for crafts and activities, and are responsible for providing a nutritional snack and/or drink the day they are in the classroom.
Parents provide additional support by serving on the Community, Marketing, Development, Technology and Green Committees. These committees are vital to the operation, improvement and promotion of NPCCP. Additionally, program support is provided by the Preschool Committee comprised of church members and parents of children enrolled in the school
