Both classes will participate in a program of art, reading, music, math, and science, as well as monthly field trips and monthly parties to supplement the curriculum.
As this is a participatory program, parents must work once a week in the classroom.
Focus will be on:

The cost per child is $165.
Each child needs to bring a nutritious snack (parents are encouraged to bring one, too), a backpack for their snack, their change of clothes, their assignments and a mat or towel.
Our theme for September is “ALL ABOUT ME”
We will explore our own interests and ourselves and make a booklet. We will also go to the County Museum and have a party at the end of the month!
We will talk about the changes of the season, pumpkins, apples, spiders and twigs. We will also go to the pumpkin patch and have a costume party.
We will talk about Pilgrims and Indians, and giving to others with a food drive. We will also go to Oak Glen Orchards and have a Thanksgiving feast in class.
We are a community program open to everyone. Come join us for fall session and see what we are all about!

A NOTE FROM DENNIE MARIE MORALES
Hello. A few of you may know me as Mrs. Morales from Parent Participation Preschool where I taught at the Redlands School District, Adult Education, and recently at the YMCA. Our program now has a new location and a new direction, with renewed emphasis on parent education. We cover topics during the regular school year such as levels of art and play, stages of reading and writing, discipline strategies, influence of technology, multiple intelligences, and megaskills.
I received my Master’s Degree in Education, with an emphasis on curriculum and instruction, from the University of Redlands. I created a “Parent Education for the Preschool Child” manual and revised the program at Redlands Adult Education.
