Jump Start

Our school philosophy is to provide a loving and nurturing environment for our youngest preschool students to explore and experience the world around them.  Our Jump Start program is designed to provide experiences for developing skills in:

  • transitioning into school and developing independence
  • exploring the classroom environment
  • beginning social skills with their classmates
  • participating in group activities.

Some learning activities that will be offered to your child during our mornings at TBA are:

  • making choices during free play
  • learning how to play with a classmate
  • circle/story time
  • social skills at snack time
  • songs and large motor movement
  • “messy” projects (paint, play dough, and shaving cream)
  • the most important lesson of all, as quoted by our graduates… “Mommies and daddies always come back”!
