Ages 4 and up for Children Who Will Be Attending Kindergarten in the Fall

Our Pre-K program offers a daily schedule and routine as well as a variety of activities to engage your child and get them ready for Kindergarten. They will participate in Circle Time every day as well as Daily Centers. Our program focuses on a letter of the week, sign language word of the week, and Spanish word of the week. We also use the Handwriting Without Tears curriculum. Your child will read stories with their class or come up with a story on their own, build in our block center, use their imagination in our dramatic play area, explore their senses during texture time and explore nature. All of our classes get to participate in our Art Program, Creative Kids, and learn how to create art in a comprehensive, exploratory way. We make time for movement and dance every day. Our music program is coming soon!

Our Certified Teachers know how to make learning fun. We send home daily logs to help you connect with your child at the end of their day about what we are working on and learning. You will receive a weekly art log and your child gets to create their own Art Portfolio. Quarterly Progress Reports are sent home to track progress and watch as they grow and learn new things.
