Wilton Helping Hands preschool is an exciting preschool program for children ages 3-4 years old. Classes typically consist of 12 children and 2 preschool teachers. On a typical day of preschool, children are exposed to a series of different centers and activities, including: emergent math, reading and writing activities, circle/story time, arts and crafts, snack, outdoor play, and free play.
The program is unique in that it is part of the Wilton Public School system and run through Wilton High's Child Development program. Alongside two certified preschool teachers, several high school students interested in Early Childhood Development are given the opportunity to help develop curriculum and volunteer in the classroom during school hours alongside the preschool teachers. This allows children in the school to receive increased one-on-one attention when exploring and developing new skills, as well as to create a special bond with many of the high school students.
The use of the Wilton High School building allows preschoolers a wide variety of exciting events unique to the program. Some of these opportunities include: attending in-school music concerts, exploring animals in the Science rooms, molding pottery in the Fine Arts classroom, and a Springtime field trip.
