Perspective from our Families

We love A Mother’s Touch! From our son’s experiences in the infant room to his experiences in early preschool, I have known that he is well cared for. Our son is safe, loved, and healthy. Everyday, he comes home so excited to tell us about fun activities; our son has learned so much at AMT. Every time I drop off or pick up, his teachers are welcoming and positive. I know that I can trust them and that they are always looking out for the children in their classrooms. I am forever thankful for these amazing teachers and for what AMT has done for my son! - Meagan B.

There is nothing like A Mother's Touch. The teachers and staff take time to know every family and child. We couldn't be happier with our child’s care and education. We are proud to be a part of the AMT family! - Jim and Dawn S.
I like the learning curriculum - the kids learn letters and numbers, the teachers incorporate new topics of discussion every week, and the teachers read with the kids. The art projects are always great; my daughter enjoys them very much. I also like the addition of dance and Spanish classes, along with the field trips. A Mother's Touch is a place very much focused on education. The teachers and the staff are nice and helpful, which makes for a pleasant and warm environment. - Corina Z.

Educational Philosophy

A Mother’s Touch offers three intentionally aligned preschool programs for children ages 3 to 5.

Our curriculum promotes learning through play and social experience and encourages hands-on exploration within multiple learning centers. Our structured learning environment also allows room for children to make choices and grow in independence.

Daily Experiences

Daily experiences foster physical, sensory, social, emotional, and intellectual development.

Physical Care

Our routines empower children to independently engage in self care practices that promote healthy living. Teachers guide children to effectively clean up and dress themselves for outdoor play. Children participate in discussions about healthy living and safety. In early preschool classrooms, we also partner with families to support children in toilet training. Ever patient and supportive, our teachers respond intentionally to the child’s cues for help in mastering these skills.

Motor Skills

Preschoolers build skills through exploration! To prepare for the multifaceted work of writing, children engage in increasingly complex fine motor activities such as coloring, tracing, cutting, drawing, and approximating letters to represent written words. Our children also spend time building balance, muscle strength, and endurance while climbing, jumping, and running outdoors and in our indoor gym.

Social-Emotional Skills

In all preschool classrooms, teachers guide children to show increasing levels of persistence and independence when problem solving. Children are prompted to clearly communicate needs, desires, and feelings. Preschool learning is a social experience, so core values such as empathy and care for others are prioritized, modeled, discussed, and recognized through positive reinforcement. In Pre-Kindergarten, teachers use Second Step Early Learning curriculum to explicitly teach executive function skills, which research has proven to be the foundation for self-regulation and social-emotional competence.

A Mother’s Touch is pleased to offer the Language Stars Spanish Program to our Preschool classrooms.

Cognitive Development

Our Curriculum

Language Development: Our goal is to support preschoolers in developing strong identities and desire as readers such that they independently engage in early literacy activities often. Through shared, group writing experiences, children come to understand that writers write for different purposes and develop an awareness of text and labels in the environment. Children are introduced to the alphabet, develop phonological awareness through activities such as rhyming, and receive explicit instruction in phonics. Our Jr/Pre Kindergarten classrooms implement Jolly Phonics, a multisensory approach to letter sound recognition. To aid in letter formation, our Jr./Pre Kindergarten classrooms implement Handwriting Without Tears, an informal, developmentally appropriate readiness program designed by an occupational therapist to meet the needs of 3-5 year olds. Through activities such as building with wooden pieces, stamping, and rolling dough, children gain experience with hands on letter play and prepare for success with capital letters.

Math & Science: Children build number sense and learn fundamental concepts of science through experiments and playful activities such as cooking, counting, sorting, and sensory table activities. Children can be found comparing, ordering, describing, and graphing according to patterns, colors and shapes, to name a few.
