Pre-K – 18 children – 1:9 ratio

Our Pre-K classroom offers children who are getting prepared to enter Kindergarten the necessary foundation from which to support their cognitive, social-emotional, and physical growth. Through an enriched, challenging, and varied curriculum, children have maximum opportunities to explore and learn through a variety of interactive experiences.  The day is planned to ensure a balance between individual and group play, quiet and active times, children’s choices and teacher-initiated activities. The program incorporates experiences such as dramatic play, blocks, fine motor, language and literacy, art, science and nature, math, music and movement and outdoor play, all with an emphasis on teaching children strong social-emotional skills. The curriculum is supplemented with weekly trips to the bookstore, special programs and events such as our Fall Festival, Bookmobile visits, STEM presentations, museum outreach programs and an optional yoga program.
