Our PreKindergarten program is a 5-day, full day program (a morning only option is available) designed for young 5-year olds as a transition to kindergarten. Our program develops necessary kindergarten academic-readiness skills as well as important social-emotional skills.
Often, this extra year offers the “gift of time” and will bring increased success for young children as they progress through the upper grades. With a focus on literacy, math, self-regulation and social skills, students will benefit from whole and small group instruction, independent work centers and “hands-on” learning.
PreK students also participate in Music, Art, Library, Computer and Physical Education classes taught by our faculty specialists. PreK students may participate in our school’s hot lunch program, and also receive daily recess and a daily rest time.
Students must have reached their 5th birthday by December 31st of the school year for which they are registered.*
*Exceptions to this age requirement are made on a case-by-case basis. A child who does not meet this age requirement must have attended at least one year in a preschool program and provide a letter of recommendation from the former preschool teacher indicating readiness for a 5-day program.
