MULTILANGUAGES​

Language development starts from birth and continues developing within our social environment.  Communication and Language development is the basis for all learning in our Preschool.

In our Community, English and Spanish are very important languages.  Learning languages promotes intercultural bridges and opens up a whole new world to the children.  Children work with Spanish speaking teachers in a fun and dynamic way.

COLLABORATION WITH PARENTS

Our main goal for our Preschool is to be able to work hand in hand with our parents. Parental support for our program and different school activities is essential.  Good communication between parents and teachers is key to having a successful preschool program.

At Wood Rose Academy Preschool, we offer a mentoring program to our students and parents.  This program offers better support to families in the preschool.

WOOD ROSE ACADEMY PRESCHOOL LEARNING MATERIALS

At Wood Rose Preschool we provide each child with his/her own creative writing book kit, given to us by Fundación Arenales. The Creative Writing Book Kit consists of the Reading, Mathematics, Writing, Religion book.  Having their own set of books/materials will develop their sense of ownership along with having more effective tools for learning.

OUR FOUNDATION

At Wood Rose Academy Preschool, we seek to foster loving, creative and confident minds with developmentally appropriate programs.  Our dedicated and nurturing teachers strive to meet the needs of the whole child - social, emotional, cognitive, academic and spiritual. Wood Rose is a place where the children are accepted and loved, where they are encouraged to develop at their own pace, and where their laughter and play are cherished and their safety and well-being are the top priority.

I. Multi-Language with Spanish speaking

Languages and communication are the door to this world.  Children who are exposed to different languages learn new languages in a more natural way and also are more open to learn about other cultures, including their own.

II. Appropriate educational training activities for each age from the beginning

In our programs for children, we encourage the children to learn through play using all their senses integrated with our academics.  We also encourage the children's natural desire to learn, discover and use their own skills.  

 

We are trained for the sensitive early childhood stages.  Experience has shown that there are different ideal ages to learn how to write, walk, ride a bicycle, clean up etc. Thus we adjust and work with each individual child's development and recreational habits.

III. Comprehensive and Personal Training

A main element in our teaching philosophy is the attention to all the senses with a comprehensive teaching program as well as training that is based on the Christian vision of the human person's different aspects, including intellectual, human, spiritual, social and motor skills.

We are committed to these values and promote them within the context of teachings of the Catholic Church.

IV. Complementary Activities, Excursions, Outdoor Play, Activity Corners

Movement, outdoor play, experiences and new activities are a very important key to the child's development.  

Also outdoor play allows the children to apply what they have already learned and allows them to make their own decisions.  That is why we have designed  activity centers so the children can choose between the options based on their interest.  

When the children go out for field trips, they are able to understand many new things using their senses and broadening their horizons.​
