Happy Huskies Preschool
Happy Husky Preschool is a lab-based early childhood program. High school students, studying child development, work with the 3, 4, and 5 year old children that attend our program. The high school students prepare lessons for the children daily, all of which focus on the preparatory skills needed for the preschool children to be successful in kindergarten. They also complete weekly observations to gain a better sense of the preschool children’s developmental and educational needs. The preschool director is a certified Family and Consumer Sciences high school instructor, with several years of child development and preschool experience. It is the responsibility of the director to review students’ lesson plans regularly and to be certain all plans are developmentally and academically appropriate. All lesson plans are required to meet the early childhood state learning standards. Through this unified high school student and director relationship, a quality program is established for our preschool children.
