This classroom is for children in their younger fours.
Our pre-kindergarten program is intended to develop children’s knowledge, skills, and abilities in all developmental areas and to establish a foundation for lifelong learning. We believe that every child is an active learner who builds meaning and understanding through full involvement in his/her learning environment. This child-centered program combines high expectations for each child with respect for individual development.
Our Pre-Kindergarten programs contain everything your child will need to be ready and successful in Kindergarten. Our goal is to foster a sense of independence and a “Can Do” attitude. We are always pushing them to stretch and grow and to improve and master new concepts. Valuable life skills such as Responsibility, Honesty, and the ability to share and cooperate with others will be introduced.
Big Day by Harcourt is the curriculum used for Pre-K. It is a proven-effective comprehensive early learning program that embraces children’s natural curiosity and encourages them to explore and connect to the world around them.
Pre-K children will receive 2 progress reports through the school year to keep you informed on academic progress. One in the fall and another in the spring.

Big Day Includes Five BIG Elements of Success:
1) Big Experiences
Each day is organized around three big experiences—whole group, circle time, and story time lessons—that provide an anchor for conversation, play and learning.
2) Meaningful Conversations
Oral language is at the heart of Big Day instruction and the program provides opportunities for children to hear language modeled and use language in rich and varied contexts.
3) The Best Children’s Literature and Nonfiction texts
The program surrounds children with a diverse collection of authentic literature and nonfiction: big books, lap books, little books, eBooks, video storybooks, audiobooks, take-home books, and downloadable books.
4) Innovative Technology
The program features a robust collection of online resources and tools that support teachers and extend early learning into the home and community.
