As a wife, mother of three, a teacher of elementary and special education I tried to choose a pre-school that was educational, organized, creative, current, has community field trips and most importantly- lots of fun. I found it at Foundations, right here in Orchard Park.
Foundations focuses on age-appropriate tasks and lessons that are theme centered. Whether your child is 3,4, or 5 they will enter a structured classroom that is well thought out. The teachers are thoughtful in their planning and considerate to special needs children. Parents are ALWAYS welcome and are always a part of the classroom. Field trips and visits within the classroom are always a way I could be a part of Carolines morning. My older children love to come back and say I learned how to write here. Foundations teaches the children to write by using an AWARD WINNING writing Occupational Therapy tool called HANDWRITING WITHOUT TEARS. It is awesome, easy and multi-sensory. Caroline uses shaving cream, small chalkboards, water and play-doh to make letters. Letters are introduced simply and fun. What a way to begin making learning positive.
