Welcome to Preschool

Dear Parents,

Welcome to PreK 4 classroom. I look forward to working with you this year to help your child grow. Our website is designed to assist you in your child’s education. I hope you find it easy to navigate and can find everything that you are looking for. Be sure to check in each weekend for a weekly update before the upcoming week.

The 4-year-old program emphasizes kindergarten readiness and exploration. This program is designed to expand on the skills established in our 3-year-old program including socialization, independence, and group participation, and to prepare students for future elementary school experiences. Our engaging educational atmosphere is rich with discovery and possibility. Our goal is to encourage and challenge our students to become independent, enthusiastic learners.

We use a variety of instructional methods and developmentally appropriate activities to meet the varying cognitive, social and emotional needs of each individual child. To help prepare our students for upcoming kindergarten experiences, language and literacy activities further emphasize letter/sound relationships and are designed to promote reading readiness and encourage self expression. As fine motor skills develop, art activities can be more complex. Quantitative, comparative, and more detailed concepts are introduced as students demonstrate increased memory and attention skills in the 4-year-old program.
