Our goal is to allow each child to become the best they can by building self-esteem and increasing language skills and social awareness. Gold Creek strives to provide inviting and stimulating activities designed for all abilities and learning styles. We accomplish this by offering 3 rotations with specialists engaging our preschoolers in a variety of challenging and fun activities. The Gold Creek Equestrian Preschool aims to foster a sense of "team," where children are encouraged to develop leadership and cooperation through:
Language and social development
Physical development, through horseback riding and organized fitness activities
Skill development, through art/science/math activities.
Academia and School-Ready Knowledge
Gold Creek follows the local school district's recommendations for skill knowledge and mastery for kindergarten readiness.
Math and Science
Gold Creek presents sensory activities that help preschoolers discover mathematic concepts including: Sequencing, patterning, sorting, number recognition, and quantity. Our science activities encourage natural and physical science exploration, with a curriculum that encourages inquisitive and investigative learning with hands-on materials and live animals.
Social and Language
Gold Creek incorporates a social skill program into the daily routine. We teach whole body learning using all our senses and an emotional intelligence curriculum to promote social and emotional development. While building vocabulary and developing listening skills, children also learn patience, cooperation and an ability to negotiate through conflict.
Art and Creativity
Our preschoolers experience daily activities through art. Developing small motor skills requires practice. Our “practice” is fun and engaging. Each day our preschoolers create through painting, drawing, cutting and gluing with a multitude of mediums, textures and colors.
Health and Fitness
Gold Creek has an indoor and an outdoor playground with an array of gymnastic equipment to exert energy and grow healthy preschoolers. Our fitness program includes a cardio warm up to develop locomotor skills. Fitness time includes balancing and agility activities and a portion of each class focuses on acrobatics; rolls, wheels & stands. We end our class with an obstacle course to challenge all levels of physical abilities.
Equine Education and Pony Rides
Gold Creek is located on 10 acres with 3 arenas and 50 horses. It’s a perfect location for children to learn about horses and have the opportunity to ride them. Each week Gold Creek students participate in an equine lesson and ride on one of our ponies. Children will become comfortable around the horses and learn about caring for horses in one of our barns or covered arenas.
