Our Pre-Kindergarten students are preparing to enter their first level of formal education in Kindergarten. Our concentration is on establishing intellectual, social and emotional foundations as well as language arts, communication skills and academics including science, math, phonics, social studies and writing. Activities include circle time to discuss ideas and observations, fine motor skills, art, block play, dramatic play, outdoor play, organized walks and local field trips to learning resources in the area. Our pre-kindergarten children are so aware of their surroundings that a trip to a local construction site is fascinating and allows them to monitor progress and accomplishments. They are taught to tie their shoes, construct simple graphs, write their names, addresses and phone numbers and count backwards and forwards. All of these skills are very useful in Kindergarten. They are well-rounded by the time they leave this program to enter their first step into Kindergarten.
