the journey begins here.
The Pre-K 4's and Kindergarten provide a nurturing environment promoting the social, emotional and academic growth of each child. It is our belief that children are unique individuals and we embrace their individuality. Our developmentally appropriate curriculum meets the varied needs of our students providing them with a personalized learning experience.The Pre-K screening and Kindergarten Assessment date will be Friday, January 19th this year

PRE-K & KINDERGARTEN CURRICULUM
Children are engaged in daily activities that develop phonological awareness to build a strong foundation for reading. Exposure to quality literature, nursery rhymes, songs and poems further enhances each child’s awareness of the sounds of language. Through a multisensory approach, students are exposed to the alphabet, letter names and sounds. They learn the concepts of print, build vocabulary and language skills, and develop listening skills.
Children actively explore the world through scientific observations and experimentation. Units of study include insect life, plant life, animals and weather. Through inquiry based learning, students gain an understanding of the world around them.
Children develop an awareness of numbers and mathematical concepts through hands-on activities and the use of manipulatives. They are introduced to counting, number recognition, number writing, one-to-one correspondence, patterns, shapes, colors, as well as sorting and comparing. Concepts spiral through the year with students building upon prior knowledge and expanding their thinking to build a solid foundation of math concepts.
Children will be introduced to Spanish. Throughout the year, students will engage in storybooks, games and activities that reinforce the subject matter.
Art & Music
Art is a creative process that encourages children to explore their imagination. Our art program encourages individuality and free expression through painting, coloring, and cutting. In music, students will learn by singing, creating sound and movement to develop musical skills. The focus in the arts is on the process, and not the final product.
Students will receive a general introduction to age-appropriate technology in the classroom setting. Students are introduced to more formal technology such as iPads and Google Chromebooks in K.
