Pre-Kindergarten children have increased learning capacity to understand concepts and to share common experiences in a community of peers. The Pre-Kindergarten curriculum continues to emphasize an approach that is intentionally designed to meet the interests, skills and developmental needs of each child.
A few of the areas that the curriculum activities will reflect are: science and mathematics, health, music, art, and song and story writing. Social skills continue to be emphasized in the Pre-Kindergarten program, which further support critical thinking and language skills.
Our program avoids isolated skill activities that require children to use dittos, rote training for memorization, reciting in unison or flash card drilling. Children will build their social skills, critical thinking and language skills by participating in independent, large group and small group activities.
During this time of development, teachers further embed curriculum with more complicated activities in number sense and other mathematical concepts, language and literacy projects, writing centers, investigative science projects, drama and theatrical experiences, block building, and dramatic play centers.
