Prepare your child for the future with a well-rounded early childhood education from Playmates
Pre-School and Daycare in Fort Myers, Florida. Playmates Pre-School is a family-owned, multi-generational, early childhood learning facility.
The Miller Family purchased the center in 1989 and has had the opportunity to serve the children in the surrounding areas of Lee County and Collier County for over 20 years.
Our VPK pre-school education program is designed to nurture the whole child through hands on learning environment. The VPK children learn through fun activities that promote:
• Hard Work
• Self Control
|• Conflict Resolution
• Respect for Others & the Environment
We believe that character development and social awareness play a key role in developing a balanced and productive child. Our program uses a professional VPK-approved curriculum by Saxon Publishers®. The program is research based. Max the Bear, and other components are used to implement the program. The Saxon Curriculum was designed by two kindergarten teachers who developed goals and objectives that will give the VPK child the foundation they need to be prepared for kindergarten.
During the year we use the VPK assessment tool to track the children's progress and keep the parents up-to-date on their achievements. Our VPK schedule integrates teacher directed activities and self-initiated play. During centers the children learn through science, math, language arts, water play, blocks, dramatic play, manipulative, library, and computers. Self-created experiences are a fundamental way to learn about self and the world.
Our year is filled with fun experiences and parent involvement. We have a Halloween party, Thanksgiving feast, Christmas program with Santa, and Graduation with cap and gown.
We encourage a highly productive partnership between administration, teachers, and parents. Here at Playmates Pre-School, we link parents to what their children are learning at school through parent bulletin boards and open parent-teacher communications. Your child will have a brighter future with this influential partnership we offer.
