Pre-Kindergarten (3 years)
The Pre-K 3 classroom is an environment for children to become familiar with a school setting, learn valuable lessons, and develop friendships that will last. Our main goal is to have these children ready to enter Pre-K 4 next year. Much of the Pre-K 3 day is spent using centers. There are many practical skills that are revealed during independent centers, including learning sharing strategies, appropriate social skills, and listening to and asking appropriate questions. Over the course of the year, students learn to work through problems without teacher assistance, learn how to properly participate in group lessons, and obey classroom and school rules. Thematic units are used to enforce integrated learning in Pre-K 3.
While some three-year olds are ready for a full week at school, some families prefer a more flexible schedule. Our Pre-Kindergarten (3 year old) class offers complete flexibility for families to choose from a wide array of scheduling options: 5 full days to a minimum of 2 half days. Options include:
- 2 days (half and full day options) – Monday and Wednesday
- 3 days (half and full day options) – Monday, Wednesday, and Friday
- 4 days (half and full day options) – Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday
- 5 days (half and full day options) – Monday through Friday
