Uncle Sam English House
Preschool Developmental Areas Mission

All students will be tested using University of Cambridge testing program, before starting any classes to determine the correct level of placement of each and every child.

In the preschool years, brain and body development are significantly associated. Children should be encouraged to play regularly with block building, or other manipulative activities, as well as in music, art, dramatic play, and language activities, in order to stimulate both sides of the brain.

At the preschool stage, parents should be focused on both gross and fine motor developmental activities. Developing the large muscles will give support to the small muscles in the hands and fingers.

Socially, preschool children interact with peers and adults other than family members and need guidance to develop the ability to share, take turns, lead, follow, and becoming a friend.

Emotionally, the young child’s increasing independence involves taking steady steps away from the security of the parent’s presence and protection and achieving self-assurance and individuality. Children need to feel safe in order to feel free to explore, and they need meaningful responses from significant adults who take pleasure in their successes and comfort them in their failures. As children begin to practice independence, it is important to allow them enough time to work on tasks until they are pleased with the outcome.

Learning through Play     边玩边学

Preschool children learn ideas through play that incorporate all of their senses. While they are having fun and learning necessary social patterns (being respectful of each other, taking turns, etc.) they are unaware that they’re acquiring educational knowledge. Physical activities, such as ball play, promotes hand-eye coordination and gross motor skills, writing games advance fine motor skills, card games help to encourage memory, and games involving books inspire an interest in reading and language.

Preschool children take pleasure in playing actively with each other. They are masters of make-believe. They like to act out grown-up roles and create imaginary situations. Costumes and equipment that help them in their pretend worlds are important at this stage. Some of the many possibilities include pretend money, play food, a toy cash register or telephone, a make-believe village, fort, circus, farm, gas station or restaurant, a puppet theater and play with dolls and doll furniture. Trucks, cars, planes, trains, boats and tractors are all fun preschool toys. It is common for preschool children to develop strong attachments to favorite toys, expressing feelings to a special doll or teddy bear.

Physical play: Physical play helps to develop an awareness of their bodies (balance, strength, coordination) and builds confidence.

Story time: Sitting quietly listening to stories develops the skills of concentration and attention, and is an introduction to the wonderful world of books and reading.

Block building: Building is a bridge between the world of pretend and reality. It provides experience in spatial concepts, opportunities for sharing, and develops large and small muscle control. Blocks also provide a pre-math experience (size and shape sorting, balance).


Painting: Painting provides an opportunity for self-expression and pleasure. Preschool children find an adventure in every masterpiece.

Sensory Table Play: Play in these areas encourages experimentation in texture and measurement in an entertaining approach. It also introduces early scientific and math conceptions.

Play dough and clay: Modeling provides a release for aggressive feelings and offers satisfaction.

Music and rhythm: These offer a way of self-expression through playing with sounds, songs, instruments, finger plays, games, and dancing.

Dramatic play: This style of play is used to recreate experiences and stories, fears and feelings. It allows children to try out different roles and encourages cooperation.

Language communication: Communication and speech improve greatly during preschool. Words are increased through all forms of play.

Desktop toys: Puzzles, beads, games, etc. These help a child to develop his/her hand-eye coordination, sequencing skills, ability to follow direction, and concentration.

Cutting and pasting: These provide an experience in hand and finger manipulation as well as self-expression. When given an array of supplies, shapes, textures, and objects to glue the enjoyment of creating is more significant than the end results.

Our goal is to use and develop all the 5 senses in each lesson as much as humanly possible.
