Fun and Schooling

 We will continue to take many walking fieldtrips throughout the year, especially during the summer months. There is a trail, park, fairground, and then there is wonderful Down Town Sonora. We love exploring our world. During all fieldtrips, we wear matching "yellow" shirts and will be practicing the buddy system at all times. 

We preschoolers do schooling too just like the big kids do!  I truly believe, play is your first learning experience, but we also incorporate our preschool curriculum.  We are sort of a Lab Preschool for Adventures In Learning Curriculum designed specifically for ages 2.3-5 years old.  Our play and learning environment gives your child the first steps into preparing for kindergarten and developing a love of learning.  Check out our blogs by hitting the blog button on the top left hand side of this page.  You'll find lots of preschool stories, fieldtrips and fun had by all at PattyKakesKidz.  Don't forget to comment or become a follower of our blog too.  We love hearing what our PattyKakesKidz fans have to say.

Inside Play/School Room

Our playroom was designed with your child in mind.  Includes age appropriate toys covering toddler to kindergarten ages. We offer lots of stimulating activities planned for preschool time as well to better prepare your child for the upcoming kindergarten years.

 Outside Front & Back Play Yard
Our outdoors are somewhat under construction because we want to insure we provide your child with everything they need to engage all their senses.  We have a large front yard where the children can ride their trikes and cars, a 6 foot playhouse where they can use their imaginations with dramatic play, a side garden to learn about where food comes from and to plant, harvest, then enjoy eating and we have apple, plum and fig trees that are a delight during in season.  Our back yard will have a huge sandbox that is due to be completed within the next couple of weeks (pictures to come soon). Everything is set up for mobility, large and fine motor skills, creativity, dramatic exposure, life science learning and plain ol' fun!  Everyone who has seen it says it looks just like a Children's Park.  All this in a private, personalized, home-based preschool setting just for your child.  We want you to walk away saying, "wow, this is just too good to be true"!

Please tell me this piqued your interest?  We are scheduling interviews now. Call or email anytime.
