Preschool with The Chatter Box
The intent of The Chatter Box preschool program is to provide an innovative early learning environment for children who may perform best in a small classroom with a variety of supports. The class size is 8-10 children in the 3 year old room, depending on the needs in the classroom, and a maximum of 10 children in the 4-5 year old classroom. Our 4’s and 5’s attend Mon-Wed-Fri from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm., and our 3’s attend Tues-Thurs. from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. We follow the Oldham County School Calendar.
Each classroom will have a master’s level certified teacher and a classroom assistant. Bi-monthly visits from an occupational therapist and speech language pathologist have been incorporated to offer direct and consultative support to the classroom. These therapists will enhance the sensory and fine motor experiences offered to the children and assist in increasing the demands on their receptive and expressive language and articulation development.
The Chatter Box educational program will include several components. The High Scope curriculum is a respected early childhood curriculum that offers intense language enrichment and ongoing assessment of specific skills. Letterland is a systematic and explicit phonic literacy resource which has been helping children learn to read and write for over 40 years. Letterland includes friendly characters to provide strong visual memory cues so children learn and retain phoneme/grapheme correspondences quickly. The classroom will also include strong visual supports with frequent use of photography to help children anticipate events as well as recall recent experiences.
The Chatter Box has provided quality early intervention programming for 10 years. We offer a unique classroom environment, created based on observed needs in the community. This comprehensive preschool is a fabulous part of our program designed to meet the educational and emotional needs of young children. Come by for a visit!
