Welcome to the Winchester Preschool Program! We are an integral component of the Winchester Public School System as we educate Winchester’s youngest learners ranging in age from three to five years.
Our programs utilize an integrated team approach to instruction and curriculum development. Together, the teams create lesson plans and support students in learning through both work and play. Our six preschool programs together make a comprehensive team of educators, including; teachers certified by the Massachusetts Department of Education, Speech and Language Pathologists, an Occupational Therapist, a Physical Therapist, a School Psychologist, a School Nurse, and Teaching Assistants.
The Vision of the Winchester Preschool:
To promote the cognitive, language, social, emotional and motor development of our youngest learners by providing programs and services that supports the needs of the individual child and family.
Our instructional concepts are presented through all sensory modalities – a multi-sensory approach. We encourage the children to experiment, explore and discover in all areas of development. What may be viewed as play is truly a rich learning activity for the young inquisitive mind. These learning tasks provide the foundation for learning and promote readiness skills in each learner. Our teams work toward common goals and encourage each child to develop at his or her own pace.
The Winchester Preschool bases comprehensive curriculum development in alignment with the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks, the Guidelines for Preschool Experiences, and the Teaching Strategies GOLD Assessment Tool.
