The pre-kindergarten day is from 9:00am to 12:00pm.  Many children stay for After School Enrichment Classes and Picnic.

Similar to the nursery classroom, the Pre-Kindergarten classes encourage the children to learn through play, but with greater emphasis on experienced-based learning.  Children engage in a range of teacher directed, and child initiated activities designed to build a strong foundation for school.  Pre-kindergarten classes introduce letter sound relations, number sense, beginning name writing and the award winning Handwriting Without Tears program.  They experiment with science and explore with art.  The children learn to work together to solve problems, develop critical thinking skills, and to become aware of the environment outside of the home.  Our pre-kindergarteners develop a strong sense of self, and respect for others.

We offer three Pre-Kindergarten classes, Monday-Friday.  All classes have 15 children per class with a teacher and an aide.  Children must be 4 years by September 1st.
