Did you know that CPAVTS has a Preschool.....
CPAVTS Preschool Program
Early Childhood Education is a three year program offered to Cumberland Perry AVTS students in 9-12 grade. CPAVTS preschool offers an AM and a PM session, part time, preschool program for children 3-5 years of age. Children attend preschool Tuesday through Thursday from 8:30-10:40 a.m. and then 12:30-2:30 p.m.
CPAVTS 9-12 grade students discuss and prepare themed lessons to teach the preschool students. They prepare “circle time” for the day, which is learning the days of the week and weather. Following circle time, there is a group activity or craft to correspond with the theme, followed by playtime either outside or inside weather permitting. Snack time is always a favorite part of the day! Songs and story time finish up a busy day in the preschool room. They also enjoy having fun holiday parties, school wide trick or treating, and parent participation days, including an end of year graduation ceremony.
CPAVTS students learn the importance of patience working with children. Each child has their own personality and Early Childhood Education teaches the students to be adaptable, organized, and team players. They enjoy watching the preschoolers grow from year to year. Seniors in Early Childhood Education at CPAVTS would like to pursue post-secondary options such as Elementary Education Teacher, Special Needs Teacher, Social Worker, and more specifically Kindergarten Teacher in the Elementary setting.
