Reading and Beyond Preschool

The goal of Reading and Beyond is to help children from our community excel academically and be prepared by the time they enter kindergarten. Our focus is to help the needs of the whole child by enhancing their social, emotional, cognitive, physical, and creative development.

Reading and Beyond Preschool is preparing our children to enter Kindergarten ready to learn. We do this by aiding young children in developing fine and gross motor skills, writing, reading, and social skills, by providing learning activities that are age appropriate, challenging, and engaging for our children.

Children are provided with an integrated learning environment. They are encouraged to explore and experiment according to their own interests.  We use the California Preschool Learning Foundations as a base to create child-centered curricula.  This allows each child to successfully progress and develop educational skills at his or her own rate.

We measure success through formal and informal observations and assessments. The Desired Results Developmental Profile assessments, which are aligned to the California Preschool Learning Foundations, allow us to chart each individual child’s development within their natural learning environment.

Essentially, children at Reading and Beyond Preschool are surrounded by a nurturing atmosphere of respect and appreciation. This philosophy will foster positive self-esteem that will help each child develop and grow intellectually, physically and socially.
