FOUR YEAR OLDS
(4 years old by September 30)
Teacher to STUDENT Ratio is 1:10
The focus in our Four-Year-Old classroom (Pre-K) is Kindergarten readiness to prepare the students for their transition to elementary school at the end of this final level of preschool.
Our program strengthens the education of the whole child through relationship building, an gaining essential skills in adapting to a variety of learning modalities such large or small groups, partner projects, and independent work. The daily schedule at this level offers both a pattern and flexibility, decision making opportunities and a sense of security and safety. Being able to function in a group, to make friendships, handle conflict and respect the teacher as a leader are crucial to fitting into the expectations of any their forthcoming kindergarten year.
Our pre-K curriculum includes learning problem solving skills, literacy and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) concepts as well as essential lessons to build social-emotional skills. Concepts are taught within the context of projects, activities that can be teacher directed or self-guided, games and free play opportunities which are developmentally appropriate.
