Our Curriculum

Tustin Meadows Tiny Tots (TMTT) provides parents an opportunity to share in their child’s first school experience.We want our children to build a positive self image, develop problem solving skills, inspire creativity and wonder, and learn consideration of others. This environment will give your child a chance to explore life and gain independence in preparation for future school years ahead. Group times consist of directed music, stories, finger plays and other learning activities. Inside the classroom children can choose to participate in dramatic play, curl up with a book or engage in activities which include blocks, puzzles, play dough, games or crafts. Outside is time for make believe, hands on science, dig and play in the sand and water areas, climb or paint.The classroom environment is divided into different areas to cultivate many facets of learning. The art easels and art project area encourage creativity and personal expression. The dramatic play area helps encourage communication and physical expression where the child could pretend to be Mom or Dad or maybe their big sister. There are blocks, manipulative objects and puzzles that help a child practice and enhance fine motors skills, spatial relationships, patterns and matching. These activities help with pre-math and pre-reading. The children also have opportunities to practice phonics, counting and letter writing. There are music activities, sensory experiences, and science experiments.The preschool is in a community with 4 different playgrounds to go to for outside plays which give the children many different outdoor experiences. filefile 6
