Focused on Literacy and Preparation for Kindergarten

 Pre- K Program

Our Pre-K program is a progressive thematic curriculum rich with learning opportunities.  Our Pre K children are emmersed in a print rich environment designed to use all of the foundational skills learned in 2's and 3's while building skills needed to enter Kindergarten.  We recognize that all children learn at their own pace.  Some may leave us ready to read, and some may leave us all ready there!  Our ultimate goal is to encourage children to have a positive self esteem, inquisitive minds and enthusiastic learners.

This program will focus on developmentally appropriate skills of children aged 4 years old (by December 1):

    • Vocabulary Development
    • Writing journals
    • Sight word recognition
