Peer Model Information

Peer models are an important part of our program as children learn not only from adults but from watching and interacting with each other. Peer models are exposed to a positive and supportive environment that promotes self-confidence and appreciation for diversity among people. Peer models are accepted through an application process.

All children will be actively involved in learning through hands-on experiences. Self-help skills will be promoted to build each child’s independence. A daily gross motor or gym time develops small and large muscle development and coordination. The SWCS Preschool Program is a language-based preschool that promotes literacy and pre-readiness skills for school.

Our play-based curriculum focuses upon encouraging child development in the areas of communication, cognitive, social-emotional, motor and adaptive skills.
