Our Pre-K class provides a child-driven, enriching, and developmentally appropriate curriculum. The daily curriculum includes the children listening to a wide variety of age appropriate literature read aloud. To introduce earth sciences, the children identify the characteristics of local weather based on first-hand observation in our school garden. The children observe the American flag, sing “We Love Our Flag” and recite The Pledge of Allegiance for social science/history appreciation and to take responsibility for simple classroom tasks everyday as they perform the classroom job list. Number sense is introduced by saying the name of numbers in meaningful contexts everyday when we count down the numbers on the calendar and use positional language when we discuss what today is, what yesterday was, and what tomorrow will be.
The children communicate their personal experiences or interest during Circle Time to build their confidence and language skills. Physical development occurs when children combine large muscle movements with equipment and use various motor skills to move from one place to another during outdoor play. Enthusiastic teachers and a well developed curriculum offer children a variety of experiences and hands on activities designed to promote cognitive, social, emotional and physical growth. Our goal is Kindergarten readiness made fun.
