Ages 3-5 • Entering Kindergarten with Confidence

Empowering Children

A high-quality pre-kindergarten education can not only prepare children for kindergarten but also help them reach their full potential in life. Studies show that Pre-K graduates generally experience significant cognitive gains and score higher on math and reading tests than peers who receive no Pre-K education. They also enjoy greater levels of high school graduation, earnings, and overall lifetime achievement. Experts on early brain development agree: Pre-K learning has become just as necessary as kindergarten and first grade.

Developmental Domains:

  • Cognitive: Rich environments, stimulating experiences, and responsive interactions help to develop prekindergartners’ emergent cognitive skills. With a firmer grasp of logic and language, children at this age benefit from creative, theme-based activities that prime them for the next stage of learning.
  • Socio-Emotional: Secure relationships with parents and caregivers, observance of healthy adult behavior, and early positive social interactions influence socio-emotional development. Opportunities to gently collaborate with peers and express emotions verbally rather than physically are beneficial to effective socialization.
  • Physical: Four- and five-year-olds are full of energy and need active games and environments. Building, dancing, painting and similar activities help to develop gross and fine motor skills, as well as coordination and concentration.

Within the comfort of small classrooms, our skilled teachers offer your child plenty of choices concerning equipment and materials, emboldening little ones to learn with confidence.
       Strengthening Vocabulary: Research indicates a strong oral vocabulary is the foundation of future reading success. Engaging activities and conversations with teachers and peers are the cornerstone of our Pre-K program.
    • Promoting Literacy: An environment rich with words, language, and print is key to promoting literacy. Your Pre-Ker participates in interactive activities to increase phonological and print awareness, narrative skills, and letter knowledge. Writing skills are expanded with the help of the sight worlds on our fun Pre-K Word Wall.
    • Growing Up Fit: Learning good fitness and nutrition habits early can lead to a healthy lifestyle for years to come. Interactive exercises and educational cooking projects are a part of your little one’s daily routine, instilling the value of smart, healthy choices.

    High Quality Pre-K Education

    High quality Pre-K programs can have a tremendous impact on a child’s success in school and life—but what constitutes quality? Research defines quality Pre-K programs as having teachers trained in early child development. Our Pre-K curriculum is not only built on these standards, but also another very important one: a partnership between parents, staff, and teachers. We work with you to set and reach clearly defined goals for your child. As a team, we make sure your child is confident and prepared for kindergarten.
