We offer your child an innovative, fitness-based learning program right here at Patti’s All-American. Our educational preschool provides the lowest student to teacher ratio in NW Indiana. This is so important, especially during this COVID-19 pandemic (please view below for all our updated precautions we are implementing to keep your child safe and healthy). Gym-N-Learn offers a well-rounded program with a strict emphasis on academic excellence. Children graduate our program well prepared for kindergarten. Our curriculum stresses letter recognition, introduction to at least twenty sight words, and numeral identification. Students complete basic patterning and rote count to twenty for ages three to five. Gym-N-Learn also can help prevent childhood obesity with nutritional lessons and gymnastics class each day. Instead of napping or having a snack… we exercise! Our program also offers Ready-2-Learn for parents and their two-year-olds. The preschool prep class involves parent and child activities that are designed to acclimate two-year-olds to the daily structure of school. Our qualified professional teaching staff is led by Amy Pataky who has a B.A. in Elementary Education with a Kindergarten endorsement.
Precautions and procedures we utilize to keep your child safe
- Parent drop-off car service to limit the number of people coming into the building.
- Children go straight to our hand washing station before going to the gym.
- We ask parents to take temperatures at home so that they won’t bring their children to school sick BUT we also take their temperatures in the car before they step foot in the building.
- We have lowered our class ratio size spreading the children out in the classroom.
- We have installed plexiglass dividers (see pic). That way children can still socialize during class time but in a much safer way.
- Extra clothing in their backpack is required as well as an extra mask. Just in case of any accidents.
- We sanitize hands every time they rotate in the gym to a different spot.
- Children’s stay in the same group of kids in the gym and in the classroom.
- Each child is assigned their own supplies for the day. They are never sharing supplies.
- All school supplies are cleaned daily, (before – between classes- and after) as well as educational props.
- Tables, chairs, and plexiglass are disinfected between classes.
