Preschool Lab

Preschool Lab is a course offered at Burnsville High School to preschool children from our community. Under the direction of Family and Consumer Sciences teachers, high school students gain experience in teaching and working with children in a preschool lab setting. 

Eligible preschool children are 3-5 years old and fully toilet-trained. Students with special needs should be served through the District 191 early childhood special education (ECSE) program. 

Program Goals:

Children will develop,

  • Positive self-concept 
  • Curiosity about the world 
  • Sensory exploration skills 
  • Prosocial behavior skills
  • Language skills, both listening and speaking 
  • Fine-motor and gross-motor skills 
  • Problem solving skills 

Preschool Lab activity areas include story time, music and movement. art, gross and fine motor, pre-writing and reading, math and science.

Since high school students are required to complete observations as part of their coursework, children who are enrolled in Preschool Lab should be able to consistently attend our program on all offered days of the session.
