Employee and Community Preschool

  • Preschool The Community Preschool Program is a unique program for children ages 3 – 5. Children are provided a high quality learning environment with qualified preschool staff. The curriculum is based on the Florida Early Learning and Developmental Standards and includes activities in language, science, social studies, literacy, math, health and safety, art and music. Opportunities for socialization and physical development are provided through circle time, choice time, creative dramatics and playground activities.

    The Community Preschool programs are located on a high school campus with preschool facilities. High school students enrolled in the early childhood program in the high school also study and work in the preschool classroom. Under the supervision of the high school Family and Consumer Science Early Childhood teacher, the high school students learn how to plan and teach developmentally appropriate activities for preschool children. This partnership allows the high school students to apply what they are learning in the classroom and to graduate with the credentials required by the State to enter the early childhood workforce. It also provides extra hands, extra activities, and extra help for the preschool students!
