A Preschool Curriculum Guide (Ages 3 and 4 Years).
Eisenberg, Joanne
This curriculum guide describes a religiously oriented preschool program for 3- and 4-year-old children. The program reflects a philosophy of Lutheran education and religious ideals. Program objectives focus on the consideration and development of social, emotional, physical, cognitive and religious processes. The role of the church, parents and teachers in the preschool program is described. Characteristics of 3- and 4-year-old children which affect preschool program planning are presented and discussed. Suggestions for the indoor and outdoor learning environments reflect these developmental considerations. Ideas are presented for specific learning centers, scheduling and daily plans, equipment, room arrangement, curricular areas and student observation and evaluation. The guide describes an integrated curriculum in which children are free to choose from a variety of activities and learning situations. The main body of the paper presents numerous ideas, activities, materials and supplementary resources for introducing and integrating religion, language arts, mathematics, social studies, music, art, science and perceptual-motor development into the preschool curriculum.
