About GBS Titan Tots:

Titan Tot Preschool is a high school laboratory preschool located within Glenbrook South High School. Our program gives Glenbrook South students the opportunity to observe and interact with preschool-aged students as as part of their Child Development class. In addition to Ms. Goodrich, high school students rotate throughout the day to assist.

The primary goal of our program is the development of a positive self-concept and a positive attitude toward school. The Glenbrook South Titan Tot program provides three, four, and five year olds with a warm, stimulating, academic environment.

Our program reflects how children learn and develop a multitude of skills in the areas of: literacy and language development, mathematical, logical and scientific thinking; social and emotional relationships; and through music and art. The program provides the preschool child with a great deal of individual attention, various stimulating materials, and exciting activities through experiences and friendship.
 

Curriculum:

Preschool is a time of growth and development. Our curriculum is a play-based program with a focus on curricular areas and socialization. Along with the development of core academics such as reading, writing, science and math, we focus on the development of social skills and conflict resolution.

Each year, Ms. Goodrich creates a theme calendar based on interests of the students, secular holidays, and aligns with the Illinois Early Learning Standards to introduce core concepts required in Kindergarten. Throughout the school year, your child will be exposed to a wide variety of curricular learning areas such as: math, science, reading, writing, social skills, music, art, cooking, creative play and manipulatives.
 

Special Events:

We go on several in-school and off campus fields trips each school year. The Grove, Wagner Farm and visiting the Greenhouse here at GBS are our favorites! We also invite guest speakers to visit our classroom, including, firefighters, police officers, the high school nurse, storytellers, and more!

The high school drama class always invites us to various plays throughout the school year as well. It is always so much fun to see some of our favorite fairytales and classic childhood stories come to life.

Holidays are always special at Titan Tot Preschool too! From trick-or-treating, the Thanksgiving Feast, and the Winter Music Assembly, to exchanging valentines, we always have so much fun!
