The Pre-K Classroom
This class is designed to challenge and prepare those children who are over 4 1/2 years old for Kindergarten. Because public Kindergartens in most local towns are 5 full days per week, we strive to prepare children for that type of schedule not only academically, but emotionally as well. Typically, children who have been exposed to an extended day preschool program transition into a full day Kindergarten program with ease and confidence.
If your child has one academic year before being eligible for Kindergarten you should consider the benefits of enrolling your child in a full day pre-k program which meets at least 2-3 times each week
Full Day Sessions
The full day sessions are flexible in hours and times.
We want to be able to provide these sessions which accommodate the schedules of working parents.
The Pre-K Curriculum
Within this environment, children are encouraged to explore their world through educational centers: literature, mathematics, the arts, science, computer, music, dramatic play, outdoor play, show and tell, individualized instruction, and group time. Themes will be presented to the children which will incorporate letters, shapes, colors, and numbers, with emphasis on strengthening fine and gross motor skills, as well as social skills. Although it might seem like the children are “just playing”, each activity is carefully planned to help enhance specific skill areas.
