Stony Hill Preschool

 

ABOUT US!

Stony Hill Christian Preschool is an outreach ministry of the Church at Stony Hill and began in 2008. We serve potty-trained children ages three and four, as well as young five year-olds. We recognize that each child has unique talents, learning styles and personalities. Our highly-qualified teachers and staff are committed to working within each child’s comfort zone to ensure optimal social, emotional, spiritual, and educational results.

If Highland Schools are closed due to the weather, then Stony Hill is closed due to the weather. 2017-2018 ACADEMIC CALENDAR now available.

PHILOSOPHY

Stony Hill Christian Preschool was established to provide quality, loving care for children ages 3-5 years old. The staff recognize the importance of balanced growth so they provide opportunities for mental, physical and emotional growth through a variety of creative experiences. Children are encouraged to learn and explore at their own speed in areas that interest them. We are pleased that you are considering us to be a part of your child’s world during this fun and exciting age.

 

CURRICULUM

Stony Hill Christian Preschool is certified by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. We follow the Ohio Department of Education’s early learning content standards. We use a thematic approach to teaching which encompasses the Multiple Intelligences Approach along with the Montessori Philosophy.

Children all learn differently and are smart in different ways. We use classroom activities to help children express the ways in which they are smart. We look to Dr. Howard Gardener, of Harvard University, and his Theory of Multiple Intelligences for guidance. He identifies eight specific intelligences (linguistic, logical-mathematical, spatial, bodily-kinesthetic, musical, naturalist, interpersonal, intrapersonal). In our classroom, we teach reading, writing and math but also engage children thru music, art, building, moving, outdoor experience, interaction with other children, thinking and reflecting. In our classroom, we have stations from which your child can learn as well as self-direct (by choosing the station that they want to work at) using either art, language arts, math, sensory and either fine motor or science.

Dismissal

Our Preschool schedule is flexible enough to provide adaptability when necessary but structured enough to provide predictability for our young people.

We want them to view school as a safe and comforting place, where they know what to expect and when to expect it.
