Preschool Curriculum

Purposeful Play in Early Education

At Westside Shorty's we put your child first. We believe that they should feel safe and secure. Every child should be allowed the space to laugh, act silly, express themselves and use their imagination. They should know that it is okay to paint the sky red and give dogs 6 legs. We want them to learn how to make friends and resolve conflict.

Your Childs classroom will be an enriching environment, separated into interest areas where learning in the form of exploration and discovery can take place on a daily basis. Blocks, dramatic play, books, table toys/games, art and discovery. These centers along with our guided curriculum will provide your child with a well-rounded and educationally meaningful experience that will guide them for a lifetime of success.

Westside Shorty's is the perfect start to prepare your child to transition into kindergarten!
