4 Year Olds

5 AM PRE-K

 
Our Pre-K class offers a developmental, play-based early childhood curriculum which focuses on building a child’s kindergarten readiness skills. Curriculum is driven by the interests of the children. Through play, children will be introduced to developmental activities that promote problem-solving, teamwork and creativity. These elements help build a child’s confidence, social and emotional skills, self-esteem and academic skills as they prepare to move on to Kindergarten.
