Class size is limited to 14-16 children. There is one teacher and one assistant conducting this class. Age requirement is 4 by August 31st. This class is designed to meet the needs of those children who will be entering Kindergarten in the Fall of 2017. It can also meet the needs of a child experiencing school for the first time.
These classes offer a theme-based curriculum using high-quality children’s literature as springboard to develop a variety of readiness skills. Research tells us that children learn best through play, so along with good books we engineer the environment for play that promotes learning. The children experience a well-balanced day with activities that are both active and quiet while always allowing each student to be engaged.
Our Pre-K programs work to expose children to additional pre-reading, pre-writing, and pre-math activities, helping to develop those skills needed for Kindergarten. Our curriculum has been developed to be used as a guideline as we strive to never lose sight of the fact that each child comes to us as an individual, unique, and responding to activities differently. Teachers work hard to help each young child transition positively from home to school. We feel children should find school a joyous and exciting place to be. A high-priority is placed on continued development of social and emotional skills which are vitally important in being successful in later school years and throughout life.
