Pre-Kindergarten Program

Hurray for Pre-K! The Pre-K class is for children four to five years of age.

Children at this age are energetic, inquisitive and eager to learn. The Pre-K teachers strive to meet children’s individual needs while preparing them for kindergarten.

We use seven developmental domains outlined in the Delaware Early Learning Foundations in planning our weekly curriculum to ensure success. The children in the Pre-kindergarten classroom use an independent management system to move freely between hands-on learning centers. Learning centers include, but are not limited to, science, art, math, manipulative, dramatic play, construction, writing and language, library, sensory and computers.

Examples of activities might be planting a root-vue garden to observe the life cycle of a plant in science, sorting and stringing colored macaroni to develop patterning pre-math skills while also improving fine-motor skills, creating dramatic play scenarios such as the Whitehouse Oval Office during Fourth of July week, and learning the letter of the week with related sounds and activities for language skills.

We believe that the parent/guardians are the child’s first teachers and work to partner with families in the child’s education. We provide regular communication with parents/guardians, and individual child assessments and family-teacher conferences twice a year based on observations and work samples in conjunction with the Teaching Strategies Gold online assessment program. Our goal is to help you and your child be prepared for Kindergarten in a fun, educational and enriching environment!
