Pre-K and “Pre-K Plus”
In our Pre-Kindergarten programs, students are introduced to concepts that provide the foundation of skills necessary for success in Kindergarten. Independence is encouraged and children enhance their social, emotional, physical, and academic skills through self-paced exploration in a positive learning environment. Unique to our school is our Christian values curriculum which strengthens emotional intelligence and fosters character development through developmentally appropriate lessons on topics such as empathy, respect, sharing, friendship, and honesty.
Through hands-on, playful, and engaging activities intended to spark the curiosity of young minds, our Pre-K students explore many activities that parallel a Kindergarten classroom such as mathematics, literacy, science, social skills, cultural studies, and technology. Concepts in each of these areas are not taught to mastery but intended to support a smooth transition to Kindergarten. Our Pre-K curriculum utilizes fun thematic units to ensure that children’s learning is tied to authentic, meaningful experiences. Curriculum resources in our Pre-K classrooms include Wilson Fundations® for Pre-K students which strengthen alphabetic principles, letter/sound correspondence, and supports fine motor and writing skills.
