The Lennox State Preschool bases its instruction on the High Scope Curriculum to structure the daily schedule. Our program offers instruction in the child’s dominant language and parent choice, either English or Spanish, as assessed by the Bilingual Syntax Measure. English Language Development and oral language development are emphasized through active learning. Children are encouraged to explore their environment and its materials. Adults promote critical thinking and offer guidance to children in the form of purposeful questioning.
The Lennox State Preschool Program has eight goals that address children’s needs and the parents’ best interests, they are:
The state preschool program is based on the premise that each child has a wealth of experiences to share. Each child is seen as a unique and capable individual. The program promotes and enhances children’s natural abilities and potential while recognizing and supporting the families and cultures of our target population. Developmentally appropriate activities based on the High Scope curriculum are provided through an integrated curriculum model, which encourages critical thinking, decision-making, following through on tasks, and problem solving. The curricular model allows for optimum social, emotional, cognitive, linguistic, and character development and physical growth.
