Our preschool program is located within Lone Mountain Gymnastics and Swim School.
This facility allows us the unique opportunity to incorporate movement and swimming into our everyday activities.
Our active learning environment promotes development and growth by engaging not only the mind but also the body. Children learn through sensory and movement based experiences; therefore we have designed a preschool curriculum that integrates physical play with academic learning.
The MindBenders preschool values and understands this preferred mode of learning for our preschool students. The student’s day consists of what may be seen at a standard preschool; arrival time, morning circle time, snack, art exploration, free time and academic learning. Where our day differs from other programs is that movement is not curbed but utilized in all parts of our day.
Our academic activities are created to engage and challenge our student’s development and growth of their academic, social, emotional and cognitive skills. The activities utilize large matted spaces, gymnastics equipment, cones, scooters, large foam letters and numbers, hoops, rings and large variety of items the teachers employ to create their lesson plan. Morning circle time encourages stretching, hands on activities and community development. This theme is continuous throughout the rest of our daily activities.
