The One World Preschool program is for 4-year-old children and those slightly younger or older as developmentally appropriate. Preschoolers must be accompanied by parents or teachers as the children are too young to proceed on their own.

Preschooler courses contain content that can be downloaded and printed or taken online. The courses can be taken individually or in combination. The courses are designed to standalone, but they are linked in many ways to reinforce the main lessons.

The following free classes are offered:

  • Preschooler Coding
  • Preschooler English Language Arts (ELA)
  • Preschooler Math
  • Preschool Orientation (for teachers and parents)
  • Preschooler Virtues

Each of these classes is a work-in-progress. A lot of good content is available but there is still much more to do. Additional content is currently being developed and uploaded. However, we are looking for collaborators and volunteers to lend their unique knowledge and talents to these endeavors.

Behind the scenes, we are currently developing the following courses:

  • Preschooler Baha’i
  • Preschooler World

In addition, we plan to add the following classes when volunteers are found to help develop these courses:

  • Preschooler Arts
  • Preschooler Dance
  • Preschooler Music
  • Preschooler Physical Education
  • Preschooler Science

Many topics from these subjects are used in the classes currently offered such as the Preschooler Virtues class and Preschooler ELA, but there is so much more rich, age appropriate content to be developed.

Training Provided to Volunteer 

We will provide free, self-paced Moodle training to anyone wanting to help develop and/or teach one or more of these courses.

This orientation is for teachers and parents of toddlers (2 and 3 years of age). Working with toddlers is fun, but it can also be exacerbating. This course is designed to help you create reasonable goals and introduce age-appropriate methods for toddlers. Knowing what to expect, planning for success, and selecting teaching methods and fun learning activities are the key to success, and we are always open to your suggestions so please use the parent-teacher forum if you would like to share.

Preschool coding is designed for 4- and 5-year-olds. This includes advanced toddlers, preschoolers, and early kindergarteners. Lessons are presented to help children improve their ability to think logically, to organize their thoughts, to be creative, to channel their feelings, and to continue developing a spiritual and moral character.

The Preschool English Language Arts class includes lessons to help 4-year-olds to learn the alphabet, phonics, and word recognition.

Preschool Math consists of age appropriate lessons to help 4-year-old children learn numbers, counting, grouping, and sorting.

The Preschool Virtues class is for 4-year-old children, and for those slightly younger or older as developmentally appropriate. Many printouts are available to help you conduct fun activities off-line.

This class is designed to help the child develop a strong, moral, and independent character. Focus is on expanding the lessons learned in the toddler class, but this class can be taken without having first taken the toddler class. However, preschoolers new to the One World School might find it helpful to take the toddler course in addition to the preschool class. One builds upon the other.

The preschool class continues the process of learning by playing, art, music, singing, dancing, and physical activities. Additional age-appropriate lessons in English language arts, early math, and other subjects are available.

Online Classes

The preschooler does not have the mental or physical skills to work independently online though some will be ready to work semi-independently online. An adult must guide and encourage the child every step of the way and that's exactly what a preschoolers needs: one-on-one learning, sharing, and playing.

In Person Classes

It is strongly advised, especially during the first few classes for a parent or guardian to  accompany the child. The adult does not have to be actively invovled in the lesson but the mere presence of a loved one is often enough to calm the child.
