Preschool practicum is a year-long class for those students who are interested in working with young children. Besides learning about the development of young children, students will be working with our preschoolers in our on-site preschool lab three times a week. They will create the learning environment (including classroom management), curriculum as well as plan, prepare and implement fun lessons to preschoolers. This class not only gives information about young children but also the experience of being a preschool teacher. There are no prerequisites however, you must be a junior or senior.
The preschool room will be included in Phase 1 of the Maine South renovations. Spectacular new learning space for both the high schoolers and the preschoolers will be ready for the 2020-2021 school year. This room will be relocated near the A-wing courtyard and boast plenty of natural light, tons of clean storage and a child-friendly restroom!
