ABOUT MRS. HEATON

I have such a heart and genuine love for this age group! My family, originally from Leavenworth, Kansas, moved to Gig Harbor in 2013. We are still amazed by the spectacular landscape God created here in the Pacific Northwest, and love getting outside whenever we can. My husband, Joe, and I have two beautiful children.

I am beyond excited to see how our Heavenly Father moves, not only in preschool, but also in this special community of St. Nicholas School. What a gift this school has been to our family, and so many others.

CURRICULUM

Math

Children will be introduced to problem solving, basic math vocabulary, concepts of counting, on-to-one correspondence, shape recognition, patterning, measurement, sorting,  graphing, simple addition and subtraction.

Science

Children will build upon their natural curiosity to investigate and make sense of the world.  Children will focus on four steps in the scientific discovery: explore, investigate, collect and communicate.  Children will explore science as inquiry, life science, earth and space science, physical science, and science in personal and social perspectives.

Social Studies

Children will learn about self, family, school helpers, community members, traditions, celebrations, other cultures, and problem-solving.  Children will participate in projects to help others in need.

Religion

Children will get to know Jesus Christ, His teachings, their Catholic faith, celebrate the Liturgical year (Advent, Holy Days and Feast Days) with an emphasis on gifts from God (plants, animals, and human beings) and His love for us.  Children will hear Old and New Testament Bible stories, pray with others and by themselves.

Language Arts

Each day, children will be exposed to alphabet instruction, phonemic awareness, literature, oral language, pre-handwriting and writing activities, sound blending, word building, reading, spelling, creative writing and literature.

Reading

Children learn the letters and sounds of the alphabet.  Then they will learn to read, spell, and write simple words and learn some high frequency words.
