ABOUT MY PROGRAM:
Wee People Preschool is in Millersville Maryland with easy access to Ritchie, 100, 97, and 10. This is a state-funded, play-based, hands-on, nature-based, and science-focused preschool! We raise butterflies, have chickens and rabbits, and grow gardens! We examine bones and fossils and so much more. We have a nature trail through the woods and a natural playground, in addition to our large classroom and regular playground.
Wee People was chosen from hundreds of applicants to become part of the Aspire PreK team. Aspire is state funded through the Maryland State Department of Education that supports programs that deliver high quality preschool!
Our pre-K program utilizes the MSDE approved Creative Curriculum that gives children a love of learning and a running start in kindergarten. It integrates math, science, health, creative arts, social studies, physical movement, early literacy, and social emotional development. Your child will be offered a rotation of free play centers with an opportunity to learn through play and exploration. These include art, engineering, literacy, math, science, and dramatic play.
Children are served a hearty, nutritious breakfast and lunch and an afternoon snack that meets the CACFP national guidelines. Children each have their own reusable water bottle that is refilled throughout the day. Children are served family style where they can make and serve themselves whenever it is practical.
Read the parent handbook here.
Daily health screening, temperature taking, parents remain outside for drop off and pick up. No new symptoms in children or adults. This is a HEALTHY childcare service. IF anyone in the child’s household is sick, a covid test is expected. If the child becomes sick, they may not attend until healthy and a negative covid test is required.
“SICK”= Fever 100.5+, cough, runny nose, diarrhea, vomiting, sore throat, not up to participating in activities, head ache, stomach ache, unexplained rash, etc
If anyone in the household becomes positive for covid, there is a mandatory quarantine and negative covid test for return. All policies may be modified according to information available and is contingent upon the health department’s advice.
