3 Year Old Classes and 4/5 PreK Classes

The day your child enters Lil’ Sneakers University’s Preschool Program, we accept a share in the responsibility for mental, social, physical, and emotional development.  Our philosophy is to promote a positive self image and develop personal self fulfillment in each child across the curriculum.  Each child shall be encouraged to develop positive social, intellectual, physical, and emotional skills.  Our goal is to provide a developmentally appropriate, confident, and successful foundation for every child as they begin their school careers.

3 Year Old Preschool:  Our 3’s meet 2 days a week, for 2 hours each day.  Morning class is from 9:30-11:30 am.  Social skills, as well as the enjoyment of learning in a school setting are among the priorities of our 3 Year Old Curriculum.  We conference with our parents once a year.  Children do not need to be potty trained.   All children must be 3 years old by October 31st.

4/5 Pre-K Class:  Our Pre- K offers many class options: 

M-W-F  9:00-11:30am
M-T-W-TH-F  12:00-2:30pm 
M-W-F  9:00-2:30

M-W-F  9:00-2:30 with T-TH  12:00-2:30

Kindergarten Readiness is an important part of our 4/5 Year Old program, as well as recognition of the need to learn through play.  We hold Parent-Teacher conferences twice a year, with a full Kindergarten screening in the Spring.  Children must be 4 years old by October 31st.


Staffing and Communication

We are proud of the professionalism of our staff.  Our preschool teacher holds an Associate of Early Childhood Education as well as an Ohio Pre-Kindergarten Certification.  We are all trained in First Aid, Child Abuse Recognition and Communicable Diseases.  Infant and Child CPR Certification is held by all preschool and child care members.  Continuing education is a requirement at Lil’ Sneakers University. However, the love and understanding of the individual needs of children is our most important asset.

The development of the whole child is important to us.  We believe that a strong communication between home and school will provide the most positive environment in which all children can learn.  Parent Conferences, Parent and Child Orientations, Newsletters, and an Open Door Policy are some of the methods which benefit “our” children.  Parent participation is encouraged (although not required) on Field Trips, Holiday Programs, Community Helpers Week, and, of course, Birthday Celebrations.
