Fillmore Central Community Education Programs


Fri, Apr 4th, 2014
Posted in Preston Education

Fillmore Central’s Community Education offers a variety of programs for families with children age birth to 5. The mission of our early childhood programs is providing children with successful starts through healthy, nurturing, learning environments.

School Readiness

School Readiness offers a preschool experience to students that are 3-5 years of age. The 3/4 year olds have three options: Monday/Wednesday sessions from 8:15-10:15 or 10:30-12:30 or Tuesday/Thursday from 8:15-10:15.

We offer three classes for the 4/5 year olds on Monday, Wednesdays, and Friday; two sessions in the morning from 8:15-11:15 and an afternoon session from 12:10-3:10. Transportation is offered for all of our preschool classes.

Our primary goal is to welcome students to the school setting and help them feel comfortable in a classroom when they enter Kindergarten. Playtime is an essential part of our program. Playtime provides many opportunities for students to grow in conversations skills, imagination, social skills, as well as fine and gross motor skills.

We also have structured activities that focus on a standard from our curriculum, Splash Into Pre-K by Houghton Mifflin. Activities are usually hands-on and cover a wide range of abilities including cutting, writing, coloring, role playing, retelling stories, and learning colors, shapes and letters.

Pre-literacy skills are also an important component of our 4/5 school readiness program. Much of the year revolves around early literacy and helping students move on to the next step. Throughout the school year, we focus on number and letter identification and beginning letter sounds, writing our letters. Letter knowledge is not the only piece to the early literacy puzzle; rhyming is a big part of being able to increase awareness in different sounds in language.

Special education students are fully integrated into our classrooms allowing friendships to form and differences to be accepted.

Staff includes: 4/5 Lead Teachers Tonya Keim and Jessica Marzolf, 3/4 Lead Teacher Tara Corson, 4/5 Classroom Assistants Angie Haugerud and Jill Miller, 3/4 Classroom Assistant Charlene Mensink. ECSE Staff includes Connie Berg, Paula Birch, Janeen Wingert, and Katie Sveen.
