Pre-K ( 4 years old by September 1st )
The goal of our Pre – K program is kindergarten readiness. We have chosen Pinnacle Pre- K curriculum which is a developmental hands -on curriculum. This provides an appropriate developmental continuum throughout the school. Weekly and monthly themes are also used in Pre-K and while many of these themes will seem familiar, projects and activities will be different and and appropriately challenging for our Pre-K students. During each week the teachers continue to address all areas of development; social/emotional, cognitive, language, large and small motor skills. Throughout the school year our Pre-K students are encouraged to learn new self-help and social skills, think for themselves, make choices, experiment, explore and have a lot of fun. We want them to finish their Pre-K year with us, not only ready for elementary school, but also as enthusiastic lifetime learners.
Our Pre-K program is designed to meet the learning needs of 4 and 5 year old children. It is the final step on our 5 year integrated learning system. Especially in the final year, the goal is to introduce activities and experiences that will ensure your child will make a successful transition to Kindergarten. Our Pre-K teachers and staff consult and work in conjunction with the school district Kindergarten staff that our Pre-K children will be attending to be sure we are providing the skills and knowledge required to make the transition to Kindergarten an effortless natural step in your child’s school career.
Our warm and educationally focused classrooms feature learning centers, and are equipped with inviting, age appropriate learning materials. Our Pre-K teachers will keep you informed of your child’s progress and address any issues or concerns to ensure your child’s academic success.
