Students develop skills for kindergarten readiness—socially, emotionally, physically and cognitively in our pre-kindergarten rooms. Contact the program director at your preferred location for more information.

Age-group overview

With at least one adult for every 10 preschoolers, your child will get the attention they need as they gear up for more structured classroom experiences.

During our time together, pre-kindergarteners develop a passion for learning and experience a true sense of achievement in literacy, math, science, social studies, arts, technology and healthy habits.

Areas of focus

  • Writing skills like letter practice and model writing
  • Reading skills like book and print knowledge
  • Math skills such as addition, subtraction and number games
  • Social and emotional development that includes problem solving with peers and understanding social cues
  • Physical skills, safety and activity

A typical day

When children arrive, teachers create an environment for a smooth transition from home.

Once the day gets going, kids participate in:

  • Large-group learning to explore areas of daily life, weather, letter, numbers and colors
  • Small-group learning, which expands on concepts shared in the large group and works to serve more individual needs
  • Interest-based learning that gives students the opportunity to make their own choices
  • Several transitions (washing hands before a meal, stories before nap time, etc.) that form a predictable routine, which helps kids learn social skills and develop self-help abilities

At the end of the day, our staff assists children in a smooth transition out of the classroom. Parents get information and updates on how the day went for your pre-kindergarten student. To help with name recognition and literacy development, children sign themselves out for the day (along with a parent).
