Our GET SET for SCHOOL, Pre-Kindergarten Program (3 & 4 year olds) is filled with investigation, exploration, and discovery, where active and enthusiastic children can refine and expand their skills and knowledge. Through intentional teaching practices, purposefully-designed learning environments, and enriched activities, teachers ensure preschoolers have joyful, appropriate and meaningful learning experiences that lead to success in school and in life.
Our Kindergarten Prep Pre-K program (4 to 5 year olds) helps children advance skills in academic areas such as literacy, math and science, as well as in other essential areas such as art, social and emotional well-being, and health and wellness. Our child-centered approach ensures that children are exposed to a diverse array of learning activities and that they thrive in all areas of child development, creative thinking, complex problem solving, empathetic collaboration, curious investigation and astute decision making.
We have structured both of these classrooms to include One on One Teaching! Our teacher is actually a center! The classrooms have the following 7 centers:
One on One teaching
Science & Math
Literacy & Reading
Home & Grocery Store
The children begin their day in circle time where they discuss the day of the week, weather and classroom helpers are assigned. The teacher reviews the theme and lesson plans which are always incorporated in the centers activities. Then the children are assigned to a center. We only have 2-3 children in a center at a time. The children rotate to each center for 20 minutes at a time. This enables each child to have this time with the teacher for one on one learning several times a day! Our centers are outfitted with the best materials on the market! We spared no expense. We are proud that we have decked these classrooms out!
