WELCOME TO our preschool FAMILY!

We take great pride in our preschool! We know you'll love it!

HI! I'M MISS Caitlyn!

I can't wait to meet you soon! Let me tell you a little about myself.


I married my high school sweetheart and we have two children: Jace, 2, and Luke, 6 months. I have a Bachelor's degree in Music Education with a Texas Teacher Certification in Early Childhood through 12th Grade Music. I've been a musician all my life, and a teacher for 6 years in early childhood, elementary, and middle schools. I've also taught children in my church since 2016. When I'm not teaching, my family and I enjoy playing at local playgrounds, visiting the library, making music, and just hanging out together.


This is my 3rd year teaching preschool, and I absolutely love everything about it! My favorite part is seeing my students' eyes light up when they grasp a new concept. It's so magical! I truly feel that teaching is my calling in life, and I can't wait to teach your little one. I can't wait to meet you!

GET A TRUE HEAD START!

Music Time Preschool is "Pre-K the Music Way!" According to The Royal Conservatory, benefits of music education include improved language abilities, increased emotional resilience, increased empathy, increased attention span and focus, and increased self-confidence. These are only a few of the benefits your child receives at Music Time Preschool! There are MANY more!

Our preschool classes help your child to make friends, socialize, and become more than ready for Kindergarten. We focus on a "whole child" philosophy, developing your child's social, emotional, cognitive, and physical skills through MUSIC & PLAY. 


(Little do they know they are actually learning really important Kindergarten readiness skills WHILE they play - shhh! don't tell them!) We can’t wait for your child to join our preschool class!

each day is full of fun & learning!

15 min. – Welcome, Table Time

We are so excited for everyone to arrive! We get right to working on fine motor skills with fun arts and crafts.


15 min. – Circle Time

We gather together at the music rug to work on our cognitive, social, language, and gross motor skills with our sharing time, calendar, weather, and job helpers.

30 min. Music Time

This is where the magic happens! We review songs we've learned, learn new songs, play instruments, and practice musical concepts like steady beat, tuneful singing, aural skills, tempo, dynamics, style, and timbre. We also use props such as puppets, parachutes, scarves, and bean bags to help make sense of the more abstract musical concepts. While it may sound like serious learning (it is!), we make it silly, engaging, and fun.


40 min. – Center Time 

Often known as “Free Play” or “Play Time,” our many centers include Dramatic Play, Sensory, Art, Building, Literacy, Writing, and Science. We work on social, emotional, and language skills such as using our words, taking turns, being patient, negotiating conflicts, etc. In addition, our teacher brings over small groups or works 1-on-1 with building cognitive skills (colors, shapes, letters, sounds, numbers, counting, math/reading for older kids) based on each child’s level.


20 min. – Recess

Our playground areas include play structures, swings, slides, sand boxes, balls, sports, scooters, and more! You’ll think we’re just playing, but we’re actually working on our social, emotional, language, and gross motor skills as we run, jump, climb, swing, and create games.


15 min. – Snack Time

We love working on our cognitive, social, language, and fine motor skills as we pour, measure, sort, count, chat, and enjoy eating together.


15 min. – Closing Circle

We head back to the circle rug to work on our cognitive skills with story time and Handwriting Without Tears curriculum, social and language skills with discussing what we’ve learned, and emotional skills with getting ready to go home. 

OUR CURRICULUM IS FUN, PLAY-BASED, & CHALLENGING!

Every day is an adventure! From our engaging and bright classrooms to our exciting hands-on activities, your child will develop a love for life-long learning!

We Focus On The "Whole Child!"

At Music Time Preschool, we follow a “whole child” philosophy where we partner with you to improve your child’s Social, Emotional, Cognitive, Language, and Physical skills. Your child will learn to socialize, make friends, develop social and emotional skills, and be more than ready for kindergarten! In fact, kindergarten teachers LOVE our students so much because they're such great learners!

Developmentally Appropriate!

Our curriculum is based on the NAEYC guidelines and features a balance of teacher-directed and child-initiated hands-on activities to accomplish these goals. 


We also incorporate Creative Curriculum, Handwriting Without Tears Curriculum, Preschool System FUNdamentals Curriculum, and Jo Kirk's Lullabies to Circle Games music curriculum. 

We Love Questions!

We aim to help children become independent, self-confident, inquisitive and enthusiastic learners by actively exploring their environment.


In fact, one of the best ways we can teach is to ask THEM questions. "What are you creating?" "How does it work?" "Tell me about what you drew." etc.


We Partner With You!
We assess our students three times each year to discover what areas they're strong in, and what areas still need more work. 


We keep you in the loop on what we're working on, and we also let you know exactly how your child is doing during our two parent teacher conferences each year.

Process... Not Product!
We love to get messy, and the best time for that is at art time! We focus on the process, not the end product, and use a wide variety of art materials. 


Children learn SO MUCH MORE when they have the chance to explore and play without rules of what art "should" look like at the end.

Fun Themes & Centers!
Every few weeks, we dive deep into a new, exciting theme based on our upcoming field trips, the weather, holidays, or whatever the children are dying to learn more about. 


We change out our centers and materials to reflect the new theme. Our classroom is always changing, and you never know what exciting things we'll add next week!

THE GREATEST COMPLIMENT WE CAN RECEIVE IS YOUR REFERRAL.
