Pre-kindergarten continues to stress our belief that it is the development of the children’s potential, their individuality and creativity within a loving and accepting atmosphere, that is important. The children are given the opportunity to further develop their skills in language, math, science and the creative arts. Foreign language is introduced as a regular part of the program. Field trips and resource people are an integral part of the pre-school experience.
Each year pre-kindergarten teachers choose a variety of units that teach important skills needed in a four-year-old program. These include pre-math, science, music, pre-language, perception, and large and small motor coordination activities. The children cook; paint with hands, feet, brushes, sponges, etc.; act out stories; care for pets; run and climb; do puzzles and games; sing; and learn about each other, their community, country and world. The children are encouraged, guided and exposed to new people, places, activities and experiences that are developmentally appropriate. Our goal is to encourage children to be self-confident, enjoy fellowship with each other and foster a lifelong love of learning.
