Focus in the Early Preschool Classroom

Focus in the Early Preschool Classroom

Our Dublin, OH Early Preschool students are encouraged to explore and discover new ways of learning. Your child will be introduced to a daily school schedule, including a language arts curriculum that is focused on expanding their current vocabulary. Early Preschool students explore math concepts and learn more about the world around them by observing and participating in science experiments. Using social skills, your child will discover their roles and responsibilities in the world.

What We Do

Rewards & Discipline

Rewards & Discipline

Dublin Learning Academy’s Early Preschool teachers encourage children with behavior charts and a lot of praise! Your child will be rewarded for behaviors such as: using gentle hands, sharing, manners, cleaning up, and good “listening ears.” When a child displays inappropriate behavior, the teacher will re-direct them. When inappropriate behavior is continually displayed, children will take a break and discuss ways they can make better choices.

Early Pre-School Nutrition

At Dublin Learning Academy, we recognize students strive when they have a routine in their day. That includes their nutrition. Packed lunches from home ensure that your child is eating foods approved by you and free of any dietary concerns. If your student arrives before 8:00 a.m., they may bring breakfast to eat at school.
Dublin Learning Academy provides snacks (students may bring in individual snacks if preferred) and milk for our Early Preschool students. Please note that due to the health risks of students with severe allergies, Dublin Learning Academy has a school-wide peanut-free policy. A microwave and refrigerator is located in the classroom for food storage convenience.

Toddler Nap Time

Nap Time

Early Preschool children take a nap on their own cot after lunch. Rest is essential for their development! Parents will need to provide a cot sheet which is sent home on the last school day of the week to wash and return at the beginning of the following week.
