Sorrento Day Care  

"Where Children Come First"              12650 SW Brockman St. Beaverton, OR 97008

Preschool Classroom


The preschool class is designed for three-year olds ready to begin a life of learning. Handling increased self-reliance, testing social skills, solving problems, and developing good manners are all on the table for examination. Preschoolers are little scientists and explorers!


All of that is in addition to science, math, reading, music and movement, drama, cooking, show ā€˜nā€™ tell, and learning game playing. As a reinforcing tool, recognizing letters, numbers, shapes and colors remain part of the preschool program. The hook to make this come together successfully is to make it fun and interesting. Along with the above, we also offer daily guidance in team-building skills, social development, and promoting self-confidence. These are crucial skills in kindergarten and beyond.


Sorrento uses Scholastic Little Learner Packets workbooks to help the children learn their numbers and letters. In non-academic areas, teachers utilize arts, crafts and other listed activities to help children learn and grow.
