Name: Discovery Preschool. Descripton:Give your child the best possible start in school by enrolling in Discovery Preschool in South Jordan. Both 3 year old and Pre-Kindergarten classes have limited openings available. Kathleen Balls, teacher, is Utah certified and has 6 years experience teaching in Jordan School District, as well as 18 years private preschool experience. This preschool is licensed in South Jordan. Discovery Preschool has monthly themes and calendars, quarterly progress reports, photo memory books, and creative art and learning experiences. In the pre-kindergarten classes, students are taught all the letters and sounds, and introduced to beginning blending and reading. Another focus is numbers and counting, and students work to count to 100 by 1's, 5's and 10's. Time is spent during each preschool class recognizing and writing numerals 1-10 and all 26 letters of the alphabet. There are also many social and fun experiences and activities. There are activity days for each holiday and season (including a snow day in the winter!) and several field trips for hands-on learning experiences. Just to name a few . . . we have a pet day, pajama day, teddy bear picnic, and nursery rhyme week. Students learn to work and play together cooperatively and enjoy many varied art and creative opportunities. The goal of Discovery Preschool is to help each child gain confidence, be successful and excel in kindergarten in an elementary school or charter school setting. Many students go on to advanced placement and gifted programs because of the great start they receive in preschool. This program is recommended by many doctors and kindergarten teachers in the South Jordan area. Please call today for a parent/child tour of the preschool and a free information packet.
