Prekindergarten Program (Ages 4-5)
The prekindergarten student continues learning about the world through a wider and wider lens.
The prekindergarten program supports children as they dive deeper into their curiosity and further expand their focus and problem-solving skills. Through their play, children develop emergent literacy (pre-reading and pre-writing skills) as well as math and science concepts. As children prepare for ongoing schools, an increase in routines with self-care as well as cooperative play skills are fostered in the classroom.
