The Preschool program at the Dewing School and Heath Brook Schools transitioned to the Frog Street Curriculum in the fall of 2023.The Frog Street Pre-K curriculum is a comprehensive program designed to meet the needs of diverse learners while supporting developmental learning domains. This engaging, interactive pre-kindergarten curriculum celebrates the joy of learning as children travel down the road to success. This engaging curriculum addresses State Standards in Social Emotional Learning, English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies all in a busy, center-based week of learning. The themes are organized to meet the interests of young learners throughout the year. Our curriculum offers a wide variety of literature sources including many popular and well-known children’s books. Materials are adjusted to meet the developmental ages and stages of our three- to five-year old students.
Our preschool students enjoy time in school learning through a variety of materials and experiences. Each day includes a morning meeting where we discuss the “Big Idea” of our theme. We then learn in small groups at various independent and guided centers around the classroom. Each weekly theme is supported by the speech language pathologist and physical therapist who each provide whole-group lessons to enhance learning.
