About Recreation for Preschoolers
Recreation for Preschoolers is a preschool-recreation program for children ages 3 -5 years.  It is held at Highland Park Community Center.  The program runs on a school year calendar from September through May. 

The program’s objective is to provide a quality environment for the total development of the child with special emphasis on the development of a positive self-concept and self-image.  A variety of activities are provided to encourage language, cognitive, gross motor, fine motor and social skills.  The program runs with the understanding that each child is unique and therefore develops at his or her own pace.

It is our belief that children learn by doing and playing with materials of their choice. The environment is designed to encourage children to freely choose activities and interact with other children.

Our emphasis is placed on providing a warm and nurturing environment along with giving emotional support and encouragement needed to grow.  Our education emphasis is on thematic units and to encourage a balance between child and teacher directed activities. Our daily activities include free time, academic discovery areas, creative arts area, quiet area, circle time, weekly show ‘n’ tell, snack, art projects, and use of the gymnasium or outdoor playground.
