Each preschool in Kenosha is a little different concerning curriculum and education themes. You should research the curriculum of the preschools you are interested in your child attending to ensure you are comfortable with their education program and philosophy on teaching toddlers and small children.

That being said, there are some similarities in the preschool education themes and overall, most preschools aim to educate small children on colors, shapes, vocabulary and to set the foundation on how to read (don’t miss our post on Tips to Teach Your Preschooler to Read).

Here are some of the popular preschool education themes you will discover during your research of child care facilities in the area:

ABCs

Learning to read starts with children understanding the alphabet and their ABCs. This is accomplished in many different ways and it is one of the primary goals of most preschool programs in Wisconsin.

Colors

Preschools aim to educate small children on all primary colors and some of the complementary colors as well. The goal is that toddlers would be able to correctly identify all common colors prior to kindergarten.

Shapes

Learning shapes is similar to learning colors in preschool. The goal is for preschool students to identify squares, triangles, circles, rectangles and other common shapes before attending kindergarten.

Music

Music is often a popular device to aid in educating small children. Lessons in song form can help children remember much better and it makes the process a little more fun too.

Animals

Preschools in Kenosha will teach small children about various types of animals, including exotic animals found at the zoo as well as farm animals and pets like dogs, cats, bunnies, birds and fish.

Games

Several preschools use fun memory games to help children retain the information from the lessons of the day. Memory games usually involve cards and fun colors and pictures or maybe rhymes.

Playtime

Playtime is an important part of a typical day of preschool. Playtime allows children to let out some of their energy but it also helps teach social lessons concerning good behavior and sharing with other children.
