AIM Preschool teachers are under the direction of Gail Pinkerton and Kortni Nelson. Both directors have Early Childhood Teaching degrees and years of experience teaching in districts around Washington State. AIM School Curriculum is developmentally appropriate and full of purposeful play centers which focus on academic and social-emotional readiness for Kindergarten. We accept registrations year-round.
Children begin to develop social-emotional skills while engaging in play-based activities such as a sensory table, creative art, building blocks, and dramatic play centers. The class focus is an introduction to basic preschool and classroom skills during the singing at the carpet time and instruction on shapes, colors, numbers, and letters throughout the day. Children play with a purpose alongside knowledgeable teachers who have been educated on developmentally appropriate practices.
Gross motor skills are also introduced during recess in the gym.

Children continue to develop social-emotional skills while engaging in play-based activities such as the sensory table, creative art, building blocks, and dramatic play centers. Classroom competence strengthens through the beginning to learn letter names, letter sounds, counting, colors, and rhyming. Pre-reading and writing skills are introduced through carpet time and organic learning opportunities that are captured by our experienced teachers who play alongside the kids. This class also takes advantage of the large gym area for recess time to develop their gross motor skills. Children also participate in hands-on, student-led projects that create inquiry, problem-solving opportunities, teamwork, and planning.

Stepping Stones to Kinder
This class is designed to help your older preschooler or younger kindergartener prepare for the rigorous transition to full-day kindergarten in the district. In addition to everything covered in the 3 days a week preschool, teachers are able to enhance the student's educational experience by going deeper and gaining student engagement.
Students that participate in this class thrive in kindergarten because they are academically, socially, and emotionally prepared given the extra days and time to grow and develop. Students also expand their learning into the world around them by participating in one field trip a month.
Monday-Thursday 9:30-12:30 PM
