Here at I Am! I Can!, we offer full day and half day preschool for ages 2-5 as well as a before and after school program for ages 5-8 in the Johnsburg School District. Over the summer, we provide a camp themed experience for ages 2-8. Each of our preschool classes are personalized to your child’s age and abilities. Our experienced teachers prepare children for school and life readiness through developmentally appropriate practice. Our structured and play-based curriculum ensures that children enjoy learning as they foster skills in all early childhood developmental domains. Each preschool classroom provides a daily schedule of fun, child-directed and teacher-directed activities. Please contact us to register your child.
Our Terrific Twos classroom provides a structured environment for your two year old to be surrounded by other children their own age, learn to follow directions, practice independence, begin color and shape recognition, object identification, work on gross motor skills, begin fine motor activities and have fun with friends! Activities are purposefully planned to promote a fun-loving, collaborative environment where children work together as they learn and play. Children may begin potty training and practice self help in order to progress towards independence in hand washing, dressing, etc.
The Thoughtful Threes continue to build on independence, making friendships, and following directions. This class also begins and continues to work on communicating needs, emotional development, health and creativity. Creative, investigative games are well balanced with a bit more structure as they grow into more responsible members of the classroom. Filled with fun, this class participates in science and art experiments, building vocabulary, letter recognition, and enhancing motor skills.
Our Fabulous Fours class is designed to prepare your child for our Pre-K Program. In this class, your child will begin to become proficient and fine tune everything that they have learned in our Thoughtful Threes class. We strive for each child to become independent in all areas of self help and continue to foster a great learning environment for the development of social and emotional skills as well as communication. This class is full of fun and creativity while your child works toward our Pre-K classroom.

This curriculum is all encompassing and is a great start to a lifetime of learning.
School aged children (ages 5-8) from Johnsburg School District can join us for fun mornings and afternoons. We provide age appropriate activities for your school aged child prior to getting on the bus for their school day. After school, your child will be dropped off by the bus where they can eat a snack and choose from a variety of art projects, games, reading and music or run around and play outside with friends. We provide a safe, fun environment for kids to be kids!
Our Summer of Fun Program provides a fun summer of learning for your child! The summer activities will be based on a camp style theme, and children will continue to learn all summer long in each of our age based classrooms.
