My name is Christina Garthwait and I am the director and a teacher of the Elite Sports Club-Brookfield Petite Elite Preschool. (Petite Elite Preschool at Elite Sports Club-River Glen opens next Fall!) I have been in education for 11 years and absolutely love my time with the 3 and 4 year olds in Petite Elite.
The Petite Elite school day in the 4 year old class looks a little like this…
Kids arrive and free choice playtime.
Carpet time (hello song, counting, calendar and songs, theme of the week, letter of the week activities, travel the map, math skills, story).
Bathroom break followed by snack time.
Rotation of small group learning time with the teachers (when not with the teachers, children work in small groups on theme-based, curriculum-based, or skill-based centers).
Music, parachute games, play-dough, scavenger hunts, movement games.
Story and good-bye.
We have karate and swimming lessons alternating on Monday mornings during school time.
Optional Afternoon Enrichment program on Mondays and Wednesdays after the 4 year old class looks a little like this…
Tennis lesson or swimming lesson depending on the day.
Art project or game in classroom.
About 75% of the Petite Elite students stay for the Afternoon Enrichment program.
