Pre-K

(48 mos. – 5 yrs.)

The Pre-K Classroom is for children 4 to 5 years old, who will be entering Kindergarten the next fall. Our goal is to have them ready as they head off to school, armed with all the knowledge and tools they need to succeed in Kindergarten. The ratio of this group is 1 teacher for every 11 children.You will find that the Pre-K Classrooms is set up with distinct learning centers around the room. Children are given opportunities daily to choose a center to play in which interests them. Learning centers include, but are not limited to: Blocks, Dramatic Play, Math, Science, Art, Reading and Sensory. Teachers may rotate materials into the centers or offer a special center option based on what the children are learning about at that time.
