Pre-Kindergarten

5-6 years old or until kindergarten

Our goal this year is to help prepare your child to successfully and confidently enter kindergarten.  We will help them bring their imagination to life by providing flexibility in the curriculum to focus on what the children are interested in.  We will provide simple games with rules so your child can learn the basis of cooperative play and as always, continue to give them lots of love, fun, approval and encouragement.

Daily activities include:

  • Small muscle activities (playing with manipulative toys, coloring, painting, feeding themselves, using crayons and markers, shape sorting, etc.)
  • Large muscle activities (walking, running, dancing, playing with balls, etc.)
  • Social activities (interacting with other children and teachers, family events, field trips, etc.)
  • Intellectual growth activities (verbal language, singing songs, building with blocks, reading stories, writing, counting, weekly themes and lessons, etc.)
  • Emotional growth activities (providing security, building trust, meeting the needs of each child, creating a caring and nurturing environment, etc.)

 

Parents provide the following:
