Whether it’s filling containers at the water table, stacking blocks in our blocks center, climbing, sliding or putting together puzzles, early preschoolers are always learning in our large, bright creative classrooms. Fredericksburg’s Premier Preschool center is Minnieland Academy at Salem Fields.

As they mature, these children are just beginning to express themselves through oral language, social relationships, creative arts, mathematical relationships, and physical skills. In addition to developing a sense of self, these children are taught self-help skills such as potty trainning and feeding themselves.

Minnieland Academy at Salem Field’s trained teachers develop a daily schedule and a weekly preschool lesson plan utilizing the Innovation Series, written by Dr. Raines published by Gryphon House, as our primary source for story structure with our infants, toddlers, and twos, as well as active learning for twos. Parents receive a daily Sunshine Report, which outlines the child’s preschool activities, meals and overall disposition. Older children in this category will move to the next level of care after appropriate assessments determine readiness and upon the recommendation of the classroom teacher.

We appreciate the care and attentiveness you have given all the children and the professionalism with which you have done it. You are all to be commended.
