Pre-K Program

missionIt has been well established that early childhood is a crucial time for children‘s cognitive development. We now know that very young children are capable of much more academically than was previously imagined.  Our curriculum focuses largely on language, literacy/reading, writing, mathematics and science.  In pre-K, children will be taught foundational knowledge through age appropriate instructional activities, such as read aloud, discussions, songs, games, projects, and other active learning opportunities. Both free play and “structured” play (where teachers purposefully design play experiences to support specific learning goals) are particularly important for this age group.
