Pre-Kindergarten

4 years – 5 years

The year before your child enters kindergarten is a critical time in his life to develop early educational and social skills. Our pre-kindergarten program is a continuation and expansion of the concepts introduced in the preschool program. Concepts such as phonics and math become progressively more advanced. Young children are passionate learners and our pre-kindergarten program builds in more structured learning time. Step by inviting step, children master the foundation skills they will need to excel in their upcoming school years.

Monthly themes, weekly topics and daily activities keep the curriculum focused and fun. Our strong, literacy-based approach teaches reading readiness through our language and literacy curriculum, journal writing, music, rhymes and stories. Teachers use small and large groups, individual opportunities, games, music and teamwork to introduce new ideas. Our program is presented in a manner that encourages a child’s attention and the children are offered the opportunity to choose any area within the room to explore. These activity areas include iPads, STEM-focused centers, writing, paint easel, housekeeping, dramatic play, sensory tub, block and ramp building, fine motor manipulatives, puzzles, table games and art projects.

At the conclusion of their pre-kindergarten year, children are socially and academically ready to make the next step to kindergarten in either a public or private setting.
