The Pre-K Program is designed for children who are 4 and 5 years old who will be attending Kindergarten the next school year. In the Pre-K Program, we provide a child-oriented environment that encourages creativity and imagination. We recognize that children learn different things at different times and are able to learn at their own pace. At 4 years old, Pre-Kindergartners are making connections between what they know and what they are learning. They start to participate in routines, making decisions, and planning ahead. The curriculum is designed to prepare four- to- five-year-old children for the next stage of their education while giving them a place to feel comfortable and safe to explore their interests.
We offer a blend of teacher- and child-directed activities as well as a balance of quiet and active periods throughout the day. Through structured activities, hands-on learning, and independent exploration, children develop a variety of skills and knowledge in areas like early literacy, social skills, science, and mathematics. We set up daily activities for children, both indoors and outdoors. We have books, quiet areas, puzzles, blocks, music and movement, imaginative play areas, and large outdoor play area.
Children who attend high-quality preschool enter kindergarten with better pre-reading skills, richer vocabularies, and stronger basic math skills than those who do not.
