Prekindergarten – Ages 4 to 5 years (or until eligible for kindergarten)
At this level, our goal is to develop social skills and peer relations, while building appropriate academic concepts that will ready your child for a smooth transition to Kindergarten. The classroom is divided into inviting centers that allow the students and teachers to be mobile within the class. Students are encouraged to practice skills that promote independence and self sufficiency. Building self-esteem continues to be a priority and focus of the Program.
Daily curriculum continues to be Child Centered and balanced between self-directed and teacher-guided activities that include language, reading, math, science, social studies, foreign language, art, computer, and physical education. Free play, lunch, and quiet or rest time are also incorporated into the daily schedule.
