MBPC Preschool’s 5K

Our 5K classroom is a place where creativity and imagination meet academics. Each day begins with enthusiasm for learning and skills to help promote social, emotional and academic success.

Weekly curriculum focuses on letter relationships and phonics, math concepts, art and art history and hands-on science exploration. We combine traditional learning techniques while incorporating the newest innovative strategies. “Work hard, play hard!” That’s our motto!

We spend much of our learning time outdoors, whether on our Learning Patio with a Sensory Wall and raised garden bed, in our Courtyard with open space to explore, or in our 5 Senses Outdoor Classroom and Habitat Garden. Using our Smartboard and special learning stations in the classroom, we make sure our students are prepared for the elementary school experience. And it is such a fun way to learn!

Our comprehensive whole-child approach, with individual and personal attention to each child, is a great foundation for each child in future academic and social success.

MBPC Preschool Toddlers

From the very beginning in our youngest classes all the way to the end of our 5K program, MBPC Preschool wraps our preschoolers in warmth and joy. With giggles, stories, footprints, singing, and lots of love, our babies are welcomed into education with the utmost gentleness in a safe, interactive and peaceful environment.

Our Tuesday/Thursday Toddler Class is the perfect introduction to preschool, with two caring, trusted teachers who are the best at what they do. These youngest children are consistently happy and well-adjusted thanks to the teachers’ individual attention and recognition of tailored needs. The class size is small, with 8 children max, so each child has plenty of room to play and receives lots of attention!

Mrs. Evelyn Graham and Mrs. Beth Underwood guide the children through a fun, relaxed day, starting with a sweet moment of “circle time,” filled with singing, clapping and having fun together. They make crafts, introducing them to new experiences and skills. Free play is a great time to make friends and learn social skills! We enjoy the beauty of our peaceful campus with strolls outside, looking for birds and listening to the sounds of nature. Our shaded Toddler playground is another fun place to explore!

If you are interested in your child joining us in this special class, we would love to welcome you into the MBPC Preschool family. We only have a few openings left…Spaces fill quickly in our fun Toddler class, open to ages 12-23 months. Give us a call today and come experience the peaceful, loving atmosphere for yourself!
