A combination of organized teaching methods along with a variety of ‘free’ activities contributes to the social, intellectual, emotional and physical development of each child. At Wilmot Learning Place, we follow classroom rules and routines with plenty of room for personal freedom and space. Pre-reading, pre-math, science and social studies subjects are introduced. All these subjects are reinforced through crafts, songs, games and hands-on activities. There is also much opportunity for creativity. Our goal is to prepare the children with the basic skills, independence and enthusiasm they will need as they enter kindergarten. Learning and fun go hand in hand at Wilmot Learning Place.
Wilmot Learning Place admits students of any race, religion, color, gender and national or ethnic origin. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Scholarships are available, click HERE to learn more.
Our Pre-School Room is where we sing, play, create and learn to be independent.
In our Pre-School Program, we believe in the importance of students learning in an environment that is consistent and secure. Children are encouraged to take risks and are supported when they make mistakes, which are when the best learning experiences occur. Our students grow and learn not just from our teachers but also from their peers. We encourage students to help each other to become independent and self-confident.
Thematic units provide a mixture of guided and undirected creative activities. Children will have the opportunity to learn about colors, shapes, numbers, textures and nursery rhymes. Hands-on activities provide developmentally appropriate pre-reading, pre-math and science experiences while the use of manipulatives helps support fine motor development (homemade play-dough!). These help build strength and dexterity for when we begin pre-writing skills and teaching the children how to form the letters of their name. Creative concepts are also encouraged such as dramatic play, music and art.
