From the Director:
The PreK-3 program is committed to fostering childrenâ€™s social, emotional, physical and intellectual development, with an emphasis on independence and classroom structure. Children are introduced to an interactive classroom that invites exploration, problem solving, creativity and group participation. Throughout the year, there will be a Letter of the Week. Lesson plans are developed around each particular letter. Students are taught to recognize, trace and identify the sound(s) each letter makes. In combination, this learning process lays the foundation for strong readers and writers. Students grow and develop through dramatic play, art, music, literature, religion, foreign language and structured social time. Teachers work to establish structure and routine. Our PreK-4 Program provides a warm and nurturing classroom experience, where strong emphasis is placed on the childâ€™s curiosity, creativity, imagination and natural talents. Teachers and students work together to build the developmental and pre-academic skills that will assist them as they advance to Kindergarten. Both thematic units, as well as interactive curriculum (i.e. the alphabet, numbers, etc.), help advance the childâ€™s thinking skills, while they continue to learn to be a part of a classroom. Music, art projects, physical activity, foreign language and library are incorporated into the studentsâ€™ weekly schedule.
