St. Maximilian Kolbe's Korner Preschool
Our Goals and Philosophy Kolbe's Korner programs are developmental in theory, as we believe all children need time and space to discover the world around them. At Kolbe's Korner we provide many of those opportunities. We provide a high quality, early education program for children ages 2-5 years that fosters curiosity, excitement and confidence in our young learners. We are an outreach program and are part of St. Maximilian Kolbe Catholic Church. We do respect the diverse and cultural backgrounds of all people and welcome them into our loving and caring environment. Kolbe's Korner Preschool is made up of teachers, parents and students who together make up what feels like a large, loving family which one notices when visiting the campus. The joyful spirit permeates every aspect of our school. Kolbe's Korner not only offers preschool classes for children, but also many outside activities are planned by our very active parent board who provide easy opportunities for the development of friendships amongst our families. Parent education classes offer another avenue of education and support for the families of our program. Children who participate in the Kolbe's Korner preschool program discover that learning is fun. Music, stories, science exploration, exploring the world of numbers and letters, group games and pretend dress up fill their days with plenty of opportunities for joyful learning at its best. Kolbe's students learn how to treat others by learning good social skills based on Christian principles. As a result of experiencing this nurturing environment, the children establish a strong sense of self-confidence and self-esteem and a sense of wonder that sends them well on their way to becoming successful lifelong learners. Our goal is to provide our students with a love of school and learning. In order to reach this goal, our curriculum is designed to provide a foundation for the growth of intellectual, physical, social, spiritual and emotional skills needed to succeed in kindergarten and beyond.

Fabiano Family Day Care

Teddy Bear Town, established in 1976 as Fabiano Family Child Care is licensed by the state department of social services and complies with all of the... standards put forth by the department. The owner/director, Marsha Fabiano has a Masters Degree in Educational Counseling, a P.P.S. Credential, a Bachelor’s in Physical Education, a Minor in Early Childhood Education and Business Administration, Certified in Preschool Education and Directorship of a Preschool. Martha has an AA in Child Development & Psychology. All staff members are CPR and First Aid certified. They also have been fingerprinted and have submitted evidence of freedom from tuberculosis. Teddy Bear Town uses a combination of the Dodge Creative Curriculum for Early Childhood and the Piaget's constructivist theory of child development. The Creative Curriculum approach is based on Diane Trister Dodge's career in working with preschool educators. The approach helps teachers to make their practices consistent with their goals for children by arranging their classrooms to support teachers' developmentally appropriate practice and children's active learning, which is directed toward their social competence. Teachers arrange the learning environment into ten interest areas: art, blocks, cooking, computers, house corner, library corner, music and movement, the outdoors, sand and water and table toys. Piaget theory of child development is based on a classroom that is arranged with discrete, well-equipped interest areas. The children engage in a consistent routine that consists of time for children to play, carry out and reflect on their own learning as well as time to engage in small-and-large group activities. Adults support children's active learning by organizing the environment and establishing a consistent daily routine; establishing a supportive social climate; encouraging children's intentional activities, problem solving, and verbal reflections; planning small-and-large groups learning experiences; and interpreting children's actions in terms of child development. These key experiences are grouped into ten categories: creative representation, language and literacy, initiative and social relations, movement, music, classification, serration, number, space and time. Marsha Fabiano has taken these two wonderful child development specialists and has created a successful self learned curriculum for the teachers and children of Teddy Bear Town. The children are well prepared for traditional elementary school, by recognizing letters and letter sounds, writing the alphabet, their name and numbers. They are also developing reading skills and social skills.
