For Early Childhood Education

Get Set Program

The Malvern School Get Set Program provides children with learning activities perfect for their “get ready, get set and go” stage. Get Set is one of our signature early childhood education programs* where children concentrate on independence and self-help skills. Our teachers provide personal attention during this exciting and active transitional period from toddlerhood to preschool.

*The Malvern School Curriculum is fully aligned with State Early Learning Standards.

GET SET LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Language skill-building by means of comprehension games, repetition of new words, rhymes, stories, fingerplays, and one-on-one conversations.

Building self-help skills with daily opportunities to identify, take out/put away personal belongings, wash hands, choose to be a classroom helper, and potty training.

Advancing cognitive abilities such as classification, sequencing, patterning, and letter and number concepts.

Development of physical skills that continue to improve hand-eye coordination and large and small muscle strength with activities such as running, skipping, climbing, hopping, cutting, zippering, buttoning, and grasping.

Enjoyment and appreciation of the creative arts, including visual arts, music and movement, dance, and drama.

Excitement for discovery and learning about the world through simple scientific exploration.

In the Discovery Room, Get Set students can explore in the sensory center, play dress-up and pretend, make music, do arts and crafts, read or work on computers.

Social/emotional well-being with an emphasis on sharing, empathy, problem-solving, cooperative play, appropriate expression, and management of feelings
