our curriculum is fun, play-focused, faith-based & challenging!
Every day is an adventure! From our engaging and bright classroom to our exciting hands-on activities, your child will develop a life-long love for learning!
At Ruffin's Muffins Pre-K, we follow a “whole child” philosophy where we partner with you to improve your child’s Social, Emotional, Cognitive, Language, and Physical skills.
Your child will learn to socialize, make friends, develop social and emotional skills, and be more than ready for kindergarten! In fact, kindergarten teachers LOVE our students so much because they're such great learners!
Our curriculum is based on the NAEYC guidelines and features a balance of teacher-directed and child-initiated hands-on activities to accomplish these goals.
We also incorporate Creative Curriculum and Handwriting Without Tears Curriculum.
We aim to help children become independent, self-confident, inquisitive and enthusiastic learners by actively exploring their environment.
In fact, one of the best ways we can teach is to ask THEM questions. "What are you creating?" "How does it work?" "Tell me about what you drew." etc.
We assess our students three times each year to discover what areas they're strong in, and what areas still need more work.
We keep you in the loop on what we're working on, and we also let you know exactly how your child is doing during our two parent teacher conferences each year.
We love to get messy, and the best time for that is at art time! We focus on the process, not the end product, and use a wide variety of art materials.
Children learn SO MUCH MORE when they have the chance to explore and play without rules of what art "should" look like at the end.
Every few weeks, we dive deep into a new, exciting theme based on our upcoming field trips, the weather, holidays, or whatever the children are dying to learn more about.
We change out our centers and materials to reflect the new theme. Our classroom is always changing, and you never know what exciting things we'll add next week!
