Pre-Kindergarten

Expressing, sharing and exploring.

Our priority in this classroom is to properly prepare these students for kindergarten but not forgetting to instill a love of learning along the way. Each child is pushed to his/her potential in a friendly, nurturing way that asks the child to challenge him/herself but not to overwhelm. Through language arts, math, science, music and Spanish we are able to provide an excellent blend of the necessary tools for kindergarten.

From circle time all the way to class dismissal children are learning at their own pace. The size of our playyard provides ample opportunity to release some energy in a safe environment. Special activities in this classroom include the Thanksgiving feast, Mother’s Day tea and Father’s Day pancake breakfast. Bike days and pajama days are also big hits within this classroom.  The Holiday play is a tradition that all the children look forward to every year.

Our exposure to appropriate pre-reading activities prepares the children for future success in the world of independent reading.  Learning happens through structured activities as well as independent exploration of educational games, dramatic play areas and social interactions.
