PROGRAM PHILOSOPHY
It is the philosophy of The Wooden Pony Preschool to provide a nurturing educational opportunity for the young child.

The students will enjoy the beautiful country setting and a facility that provides an abundance of natural light and a comfortable caring atmosphere with appropriate educational materials and toys. The staff is highly qualified and exhibits a positive manner of speaking and teaching.

Through the equestrian program students learn to kindly care for and respect the preschool's ponies "Cider" and "Lady Jane." Students gain balance, strength, and flexibility as they master the skill of riding the ponies.

PROGRAM OBJECTIVE
The Wooden Pony staff's specific goals entail helping the students master the following skills while building a happy and confident self esteem: positive social interaction, alphabet/number recognition, shape and color identification, alphabet phonetic sounds, spatial/building concepts and the following fine and gross motor skills: writing, tracing, coloring and cutting. The student's education will also be enriched with math, science, and cultural units.

Wooden Pony students present a spring theatrical performance each year which entails a combination of acting, gymnastics, and songs. The exciting story of the "Shoemaker and the Elves" was presented in the spring of 2005.

Monthly field trips to science, art, theater, and community events culturally enrich the preschool student body. Many parents and family guests attend our field trips and festive preschool holiday parties.
