Kindergarten readiness is the overarching theme of our Pre-K curriculum. Teachers and children work together to begin to identify the style and type of learning techniques that resonate with each child. We believe that by allowing children to participate in this process, children share ownership of their education and become engaged participants in their learning.
Through interactive, age-appropriate activities, children continue to grow problem-solving skills, enhance their communication abilities and evolve social skills. Teachers track his or her progress through our child assessment portfolio system and daily communication tools in order to share information about your child’s development during your biannual Parent/Teacher Conferences.
By nurturing friendships, we are supporting your child as they develop relationships with their peers. It also helps them gain a sense of independence, confidence and the desire to discover. Our teachers help nurture Friendships by modeling respectful relationships, discussing and reading books about friendship. They also provide opportunities for every child to work together as well as learn problem-solving and conflict resolution skills.
Developing emotions lays the foundation for children to learn how to understand their own feelings through positive social interactions with their teachers and peers. Our pre-k teachers help develop healthy Emotions by acknowledging your child’s feelings. They respond promptly and consistently to your child’s needs, and they model cooperative behaviors. They also will talk to all children at their eye level and create areas in the classroom where children can work together.
