From the Director:

"The program is based upon the High - Scope active learning curriculum. It emphasizes a child-centered approach where the child is encouraged to start individual activity and then evaluate his/her experiences with the teachers and his/her peers. Planned learning activities and materials appropriate to the child's age are combined with a positive, warm, healthy and safe environment. The number of teachers and aides exceed the minimum requirements, and they are able to respond to each child's needs. Nutritious snacks and some meals are provided."

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The Pre-Kindergarten Program follows the 'We Learn as We Play' method of teaching. Play is the medium of learning. The children play in a happy environment that is imbued with the Armenian spirit. Nurturing, experienced teachers help prepare the Pre-Kindergarten students, through a variety of active learning experiences, for enrollment in Kindergarten. The Pre-K students are immersed in the Armenian language with periodic exposure to English language activities." Extracted from the KZV Armenian School web site.
