Our 3 1/2 year old to 5 year old children can participate in our Pre-K program. In this program, children have a more structured day that includes instruction in letter recognition, shape and color identification, name writing and much more.
Our teachers use the standard kindergarten screening as an ongoing assessment in our Pre-K program. They spend one-on-one time with the children, reviewing the skills on the screening to ensure that everyone will be ready for Kindergarten.
In the Spring semester, children going to Kindergarten will take part in a reading program. Teachers, spend time with the children in smaller groups and work on skills appropriate for each group. Time is spent on letter recognition, letter sounds and sight words. Many of the children are able to read beginning reader books by the time they get through with our reading program!!
