Children who are 2, 3, and 4 years old are often ready for preschool. Playing and learning go hand-in-hand for preschool students. Our teachers take pride in working with children to help them develop socially and emotionally. Each classroom is created to make our students feel comfortable, with furniture and manipulatives intentionally chosen to create a sense of comfort for children and invite them to relax and freely explore. Our teachers understand that when children feel settled in an environment, they will be open to learning, sharing, and growing. Through these activities, preschool children from Coconut Grove, Pinecrest, Coral Gables, and South Miami, become contributing members of the classroom community.
Encouraging Preschool Students to Develop Socially, Emotionally and Physically
Our preschool classrooms are designed to encourage curiosity in students, and with the help of our teachers, the satisfaction of discovering answers. Our teachers, along with materials provided in the classroom, encourage development in each preschool child. The children grow in the areas of social development, mathematical development, as well as language, and literacy. Our preschool children, from Coconut Grove, Pinecrest, Coral Gables, and South Miami, enjoy the social and physical environments our school provides. Knowing they are in a safe space encourages learning. Our preschool children learn how to grow as individuals, using skills that foster independence and self-reliance. When they enter the preschool class, they continue to learn to express themselves, not only through language but also through dance, painting, sculpture, and writing. Our teachers help each preschool student learn through exploration and discovery.
Child-Centered Learning in Preschool
Our Reggio inspired philosophy brings teachers, students, and, oftentimes, parents together to develop critical early learning skills guided by the interests of the child. No matter the subject, from noticing changes in weather to building new structures with different materials, preschool students from Coconut Grove, Pinecrest, Coral Gables, and South Miami, have the opportunity to ask questions, make observations, and have discussions with our teacher and their parents. Preschool students in Pre-K classes and VPK are well prepared for school. During these classes, children meet all of the state standards by diving deeper into literacy rich environments that support children and their natural curiosity. These experiences prepare preschool students for a lifelong love of learning. For more information on preschool, call Margaux Early Childhood School at 305-667-9470 or visit www.margauxschool.org.
Working parents depend on reliable, supportive child care. Finding a school that will care for your child while offering them a place to grow is the goal for parents. The Margaux Early Childhood School meets those criteria, offering a safe place for children to spend time with their peers while learning to express themselves and socialize. Our adults on staff understand that children in child care learn best through social interactions. Social and emotional development is a key part of learning for students from Coral Gables, Pinecrest, Coconut Grove, and South Miami, FL. Our teachers provide indoor and outdoor learning environments, which provide opportunities for children to explore their surroundings. During their time in child care, they will also learn about their classmates and themselves.
Learning Social and Emotional Development in Child Care
Our teachers create classrooms which enhance development for each child. Our goal is to provide a protective atmosphere, where children are comfortable to learn new ideas, make new friends, and play with the various toys in each classroom. All our materials in each classroom are intentionally chosen to present different textures, colors, shapes, and sounds for the children to explore. Many in child care are still learning to express themselves and with our teachers help, they learn to label objects and to ask for them. This exercise helps children from Coral Gables, Pinecrest, Coconut Grove, and South Miami, to understand language as a means of communication. Our child care programs are an important step in developing a well-rounded child.
Developing Communication Skills in Child Care
Children are excited to learn to express themselves, therefore our teachers support them, by providing a myriad of opportunities for children to listen to language, music and create sounds. By using these techniques, teachers engage child care students in a joyful and playful environment where their communication skills are broadened. Each of our classrooms are an invitation to children to explore and engage. We understand child care is more than just watching the child. It’s about teaching and inspiring young minds to ask questions, socialize with their peers, and learn the skills needed to becoming independent. All our child care classes are created with the goal of stimulating the mind of each student, creating a passion for life-long learning. Each teacher understands the importance of creating experiences that will help each child develop emotionally, cognitively, and socially.

Children ages 15 to 24 months learn through exploring the world around them. This leads to emotional development, as well as social development. Social interactions with our caring teachers and learning to socialize with peers are essential elements to growth in daycare. Parents from Coral Gables, Pinecrest, Coconut Grove, and South Miami who enroll their children in daycare provide them the opportunity to explore classroom and outdoor environments and learn with other children in the daycare setting. Our teachers understand the importance of encouraging social and emotional development among children in daycare. These teachings will build a solid foundation which will carry the students through their school years.
Learning Essential Skills in Daycare
Young children are developing in so many ways, including cognitive development, language development, and building skills that lead to independence. Our teachers have created classrooms which provide a supporting environment where daycare children will grow and learn each day. Each of our daycare classrooms contain essential materials to help children with their sensori-motor development. Families from Coral Gables, Pinecrest, Coconut Grove, and South Miami understand learning continues through the use of toys and items which are different sizes, shapes, and colors. There are also different sounds, textures, and smells to be explored each day. Daycare students use these various items to help express themselves and interact with the environment. They grow by learning to express themselves and their needs and wants.
Learning Developmental Skills in Daycare
Daycare students also develop their communication skills through language, music, and sounds. Each of these mediums teach the students to communicate. As they learn to work together with teachers and other students, they grow as individuals. They also learn skills for self-sufficiency, which will benefit them for years to come. Two sessions of class are offered for daycare. The first is a full week of classes, Monday through Friday, from 8:30 am. to 3:00 p.m., for students and parents who want a full-time daycare experience. Another option is a five-day program, which meets Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. until 11:45 a.m. Each classroom has a 1 to 6 teacher to child ratio, so parents know the children are well looked after.

Children who attend preschool have an outlet for their curiosity. Our preschool classrooms are set up so children can express themselves. They will feel at home in our preschool classroom because we have taken the time to make sure every toy, desk, chair, and item in the classroom is proportionate to the size of the children.

Families from Coconut Grove, South Miami, Pinecrest, and Coral Gables understand our teachers take the time to plan each classroom so that it always provides an opportunity for learning. Class activities bring the children together to learn with others. They will delve into science investigation, explore dramatic theater, and express themselves through art, among other subjects. Of course, each of our preschool children take part in morning meetings or circle time.
Preschool Instills Confidence in Children
Our teachers understand that providing an ear to listen and understand what the preschool children are saying, helps student development. It also provides information to the teacher about what is working in the classroom and what is not, so changes can be made. Our goal is to help each preschool student become confident in their cognitive skills, social skills, physical skills, and emotional skills. Our preschool program for 3- and 4-year-olds runs five days a week, from 8:30 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Our staff to child ratio for three-year-olds is 1 teacher for every 8 children. For 4-year-olds, the ratio is 1 teacher for every 10 children. This offers each child time to talk with the teacher and ask questions. Our preschool students learn through language, dance, writing, and painting. Skills leading to independence and self-sufficiency continue to grow as children engage in meaningful project-based learning. This allows children, with the teacher’s guidance, to learn through the subjects of interest to them.

Children who are four and five years old, start asking questions, curious about the world around them. Most parents in South Miami, Coconut Grove, Pinecrest and Coral Gables agree this is the perfect time to sign them up for VPK. Our VPK classes help children learn and understand the world around them, building the foundation for them to continue their love of learning for years to come. Since the brain experiences the most important growth and development by five years old, it’s the perfect time to have them learning, meeting friends and exploring concepts that support later literacy and mathematical development.
Learning About the World Around Them in VPK
