Pre-Kindergarten

In the Pre-Kindergarten classroom, our main goal is strong preparation for kindergarten and the challenges of the world ahead of them.  We work on following directions, age appropriate socialization and problem solving skills. We operate on a theme based learning approach that incorporates math, science, reading, writing and social studies. The children work on number recognition, counting, patterning, addition, subtraction, deductive reasoning, and many other math concepts. We also practice writing skills, phonics, word recognition, holding a pencil the proper way, reading and writing simple sentences.
