The KinderRHAMa Preschool Program is located at RHAM High School in Hebron. The purpose of this program is to provide a nurturing, safe, stimulating and developmentally appropriate environment for children ages 3-5. In addition, this program provides High School students with an understanding of child development through observation and interaction.
KinderRHAMa preschool is staffed by two trained teachers and follows the State of CT Early Developmental Guidelines (CT ELDS) in planning and implementing curriculum. These skills are interwoven into the school day and children have opportunities to work on them consistently while engaged in play. Daily activities include art, circle time, blocks/building, stories, science activities, and outside time. There are several family events held each year including family brunches, a hayride, and an end of the year picnic. Parents are invited into the classroom at any time to observe, facilitate an activity or read a story to the children!
This program also provides High School students taking Child Development and Child Psychology classes with an understanding of child development through observation and interaction and supplements their book learning with hands on learning in the preschool classroom. High School students are a wonderful addition to the program, and are able to give the little ones attention both one and one, and in small groups, providing a very good staff to child ratio. The RHAM Students who are in the classroom are from Child Development Class I or II, but students who have taken these classes previously often frequently assist voluntarily during their lunch or study periods!
In addition, our location at RHAM High School provides many enrichment opportunities for little ones. Some of these have included sitting in the big auditorium to hear band and chorus concerts, viewing beautifully constructed gingerbread houses by the Foods classes, and seeing newly hatched chicks in the Genetics lab.
