Language and Literacy in Early Learning Preschool in Cypress, California

Teaching the Whole Child to Read and Write.

Zoo-phonics® Multi-sensory Language Arts Program is a multi-sensory, multi-intelligence approach to understanding all aspects of language arts, including vocabulary development and articulation, based on phonics and phonemic awareness.

This program in  Early Learning Preschool in Cypress, California allows for children to become strong readers and spellers using a “phono” (hearing), “oral” (speaking), “visual” (seeing), “kinesthetic” (moving), and tactile (touching)—whole brain approach. This curriculum is age-appropriate, developmental, sequential and playful.  Zoo-phonics® incorporates animals drawn in the shapes of the letters for ease in memory.

A related body movement is given for each letter along with a song to support the shape, sound and movement of the animal letter.  The animal letters integrate into the calendar, alphabet song, favorite songs, art, music, science, math, dramatic play and physical education.

In the first five years of a child’s life, it is essential that a child feel cared for and that he or she learns to care for others as well.

STEM….Our energetic and enthusiastic teachers in  Early Learning Preschool will teach your child to develop creative and critical thinking skills.  Your child will explore and discover his or her world while experimenting with different materials. On any given day, you might find our teachers guiding your child in building castles with blocks, exploring STEM concepts such as gravity or velocity or planning an herb or butterfly garden.  We have even been known to develop creative, hands-on activities and projects based on our observations of your child’s interest and skills.

Physical Development is an important part of our well-rounded preschool program in  Early Learning Preschool in Cypress, California.  Your child will enjoy his or her day through music and movement, Yoga, various calisthenics and breathing exercises.

Your child will begin his or her mornings by moving his or her body to the sounds of music and by learning calming yoga breaths.  During outside time, your child might encounter a classic childhood game like  ‘Simon Says’ or go on a ‘Safari’ or ‘Bear Hunt’ where he or she can pretend to swim across a crocodile-filled river quickly, climb a hill, jump over ravines or run away from a hungry bear or lion.

Your little one might find it more exciting to pretend to be ‘the animal’ and will walk like different animals as a form of exercise. He or she might hop like a frog, crawl like a crab, waddle like a duck or flap his or her arms to fly like a bird, but it might be enough to just run, jump or spin!  Exercise is fun and healthy!

Your child’s safety is of the utmost importance to  Early Learning Preschool.  We want to be him or her to be safe while at our school in Cypress, California.  We practice monthly fire and earthquake drills.  We also invite the local Fire Department and Police Department to visit our center at various times throughout the year to review safety issues with the children. Your child’s vocabulary is key to his or her safety.

We talk to them all the time and continually teach your children proper words and names of everyday persons, places and things such as: Descriptive words ~ Healthy body and dental words ~ School time words ~ Change of season words ~ Good etiquette words ~ Places to go ~ How you got there ~ Directional words ~ Identifying and communicating correct amounts and sizes, colors, numbers; animals, feelings and emotions ~ Tactile surfaces ~ Foods you eat and foods animals eat ~ Where the food comes from. The greater your child’s vocabulary, the safer your child is in today’s world.
