The preschool program at See'um Smile Playhouse is intended to
be developmentally appropriate, not merely with respect to the group,
but individually as well. We provide a hands-on, non-stressful,
non-competitive environment for learning.
The learning emphasis at See'um Smile Playhouse is on
promotion of physical, emotional, social, and cognitive development
of young children. Our aim is to foster a love of learning in all its
dimensions for learning's own sake. We are convinced that children who
enter school loving to learn will enjoy success throughout their formal education.
Our curriculum consists of monthly themes from September to
June and bi-weekly themes in the summer. Each theme focuses on seasonal
concepts, experiences, and activities appropriate for each age group.
Our emphasis is on learning through play indoors and out. We believe
children learn best when they are active participants in shared
experiences. A written plan of each days' activities is posted in each
The year-round program is enriched with projects, special
events, and a myriad of celebrations, all of which help us impart a
sense of cultural diversity, community, and perspective to the
experiences of the children and families we serve.
We offer a variety of indoor and outdoor activities.
"Centers" within the Center allow children to enjoy creative arts,
drama, music and movement, storytelling, science and math in the
natural world. Outdoor, children develop physical coordination through
running, racing, catching and throwing in our
private playground. We play outdoors everyday.
