Pre-Kindergarten Morning Class

Mon/Tues/Wed/Thurs/Fri                 9:00 -11:30 am

Age: must be Four by September

Ratio: 3 teachers : 18 students

Pre-Kindergarten allows children to refine social, gross and fine motor skills, as well as language and literacy, handwriting, early math, science, and social studies. Teachers foster independence and build self-confidence when facilitating learning.

 

The day begins and ends with circle time. The curriculum topic introduced at the first circle directs activities for learning in the centers for the day. Circle activities may include a story, discussion, hands-on project, or movement activity that is relevant to the topic. Children then move to small groups at various learning centers which are established to promote learning through developmentally-appropriate "hands on" activities. Students in the class use the Learning without Tears program. Problem-solving skills are promoted as part of an integrated curriculum. Children enjoy part of each day outside on the playground, as well.

 

Regular specials in Music and Movement, Art Inspired by Nature, and Native American Indian Art, visits from the Felt Board Lady among other children's entertainers, field trips, and other special guests enhance the child's school experience.

 

Typical Day includes:

Arrival and Check-in

Free-choice gathering activities

Clean-up
