Outstanding Teaching and Learning

At Bear Cub Preschool our number one goal is for students to be prepared for Kindergarten.  We believe in teaching and learning through guided play for maximum growth for young children.  Using a guided play model, students are introduced to a scope and sequence of skills that have been mapped out in a preschool learning guide.  This guide fuses together Teaching Strategies GOLD, Nebraska Early Learning Guidelines, Creative Curriculum, and Second Step (Social/Emotional Learning).  The guided play model allows State Certified teachers to work with small groups of students to expose them to concepts in a natural environment for exploration.  The exploration is guided by the teacher and this allows teachers to accurately assess student learning and identify the next building block for further learning.   This is all accomplished while simultaneously modeling and reinforcing social skills necessary for kindergarten.
