Verano Preschool provides a safe and nurturing environment, which allows children to grow socially, emotionally, intellectually, and physically in a culturally diverse classroom. Children are given opportunities to interact with one another and build knowledge through hands-on learning experiences. Based on developmentally appropriate practices for young children, the curriculum is carefully planned and developed by teachers to challenge and stimulate children at their individual level of development. Daily activities include exploration in art, creative movement, science, math, music, dramatic play, literacy, and language. Parents are strongly encouraged to work with teachers as partners in educating their children. Family involvement is welcomed in the program.
