Remember, spots may be limited as the new school year approaches.

GCP's New Smart TVs

As many of you may have seen, we have a new addition in our preschool programs. Global Connection Preschool is very happy to announce we have incorporated the SMART TV technologies into our classes. As a highly qualified preschool, we are always looking for new, innovative ways to better our children's education. SMART TV's along with SMART Boards are the newest way to educate children of all ages.

Our staff members and the children use the Smart TVs accompanied with a tablet as a Smart board device. For example, the tablet connects to the TV and children do educational practices on it. Children use an interactive online curriculum called ABCmouse, along with other educational apps which provide age appropriate games that help support what the children are learning throughout the week. Children are also using the SMART TV's to read online books and occasionally watch educational videos to help them better understand what we are learning about that day. 

Please see attached link to review many of the benefits that SMART TV's/Boards provide in a preschool classroom.

Black History Month, also known as African-American History Month in America, is an annual observance in the United States for remembrance of important people and events in our history.

During the month of February we will be talking to our children about Black History Month. Children will have different activities about diversity. We ask parents to take the time at home to speak to your children about diversity and express to them that no matter your skin tone, we are all equal human beings.
