In our Pre-Kindergarten classroom, our primary focus is to prepare our young learners for the challenges that lie ahead in kindergarten and beyond. We place a strong emphasis on developing essential skills such as following directions, age-appropriate socialization, and problem-solving abilities.

Our approach to learning is theme-based, which provides a comprehensive framework for integrating various subjects. Through this approach, we seamlessly incorporate math, science, reading, writing, and social studies into our curriculum. The children actively engage in activities that promote number recognition, counting, patterning, addition, subtraction, deductive reasoning, and other fundamental math concepts.

In addition to mathematics, we also dedicate time to practicing writing skills, phonics, word recognition, and proper pencil grip. Our young learners are encouraged to read and write simple sentences, fostering language development and early literacy.

Our Pre-Kindergarten classroom is a dynamic and stimulating environment where curiosity and exploration are nurtured. With dedicated teachers guiding them, our students gain the confidence and competence they need to embark on their educational journey with enthusiasm and readiness for the world ahead.
