Pre-Kindergarten is for children preparing for Kindergarten. The classroom is divided into areas of play and learning with age appropriate toys and furniture, large carpeted area for free play and circle time, reading center, house keeping area, discovery art activities, and a child-friendly bathroom. Teachers share lesson plans with parents weekly. Children enjoy free play, circle time activities including alphabet, handwriting, numbers, math play, science, weather, calendar activities, and stories. Students play games and make art projects based on the letter of the week. The Lead Teacher and Teacher Assistant work with children in small groups to teach fine motor skills, such as cutting and Handwriting without Tears lessons, and activities that develop math concepts. Students attend Music, Movement, and Chapel each week, and play outdoors every day. Classroom parents will send in food for a mid-morning "nut-free" snack for the whole class on a rotation basis. With sensitivity to COVID-19 Health and Safety Protocol, children will arrive and depart by way of carpool. Upon arrival, children will have a temperature check prior to leaving the car. The only adults in our preschool wing during the morning hours are members of our staff. Teaching focus is on developing Kindergarten readiness involving social interaction, fine motor, and early learning skills. Detailed evaluations are given to parents in January and again in May.
