Pre-Kindergarten Program (Ages 4-5)
The Pre-Kindergartener continues this research of the world through wider and wider "languages" as forms of expression of what they know.
The pre-kindergarten 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.
