Welcome to Haygood Preschool where we focus on providing programs that are designed to assist and guide children through the many facets of development, including mental, emotional, social and physical growth. Haygood’s developmental philosophy of learning, guides our curriculum and classroom activities. Children are encouraged through our play-based curriculum to learn through actively engaging in hands-on activities and exploration of the world around them. Play experiences encourage children’s social growth and help them develop the fundamental skills necessary for future learning. The development of learning skills is stimulated through guided, creative play and group interactions. Weekly themes reflect seasonal changes and holidays. Age-appropriate interests are carefully chosen to enhance the learning experience of each age group. Additionally, Haygood’s Pre-K and Young Fours academic program is structured to ensure our children are ready to enter into Kindergarten by exposing them to Georgia Early Learning Standards.
