Wesleyan Preschool was established over 50 years ago as Idaho's first kindergarten in the same location as today. We are a nationally accredited preschool program that offers a rich curriculum based on a sound knowledge of child development and guided by the Developmentally Appropriate Practice set forth by the National Association for the Education of Young Children.
Our program takes a child from “learning to love” to a “love of learning.” Our objectives are for children to feel loved and comfortable in their environment and to learn to accept responsibility and show respect for others and themselves.
The curriculum and room arrangements promote large and small motor skills, social and emotional growth, positive conflict resolution, and intellectual development. We offer a full preschool curriculum that includes activities in language arts & literacy, math, science, dramatic play, sensory and water tables, movement, and music.
We emphasize “freedom with limits and rights with responsibility.” Limits are non-judgmental and enable children to respond to guidance without shame or resentment. In this way, children develop internal control as they grow toward healthy independence and responsible individuals.
Children need to develop feelings of trust, security, and confidence before they are free to explore, create, and discover.
We will encourage and nurture each child individually, facilitating all aspects of development; cognitive, emotional, and spiritual.
We will strive to instill in each child a love for learning and deep respect for all of God’s creation.
The Wesleyan Preschool has been educating and nurturing children in the exact location for over 50 years. Wesleyan has been accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children since 1994. Our long-standing commitment to excellence has resulted in many alumni returning to these familiar hallways as their children enter Wesleyan classes.
