The curriculum for the pre-primary child is developmental and age appropriate at each level. Thematic units of study include instruction in the areas of language arts, reading readiness, mathematics, social studies and sciences. Daily language, speech and auditory development activities help children to listen, understand, speak and learn effectively. The pre-primary department seeks to maximize the academic potential of each child while fostering a positive self-image and providing the skills necessary for the next level of education.
In addition, there is an emphasis on activities and materials designed to develop the full range of motor skills.
Our pre-primary program recognizes that young children learn best in an environment rich in sensory experiences. The core curriculum is supplemented by "enrichment" classes in computer education, art, media center, music, Spanish, PE, and Investigative Science Lab. Our free play, music, art and drama activities stimulate creativity and self-expression. Our unique fully equipped science lab helps our youngest students grasp basic science concepts through observation and manipulation of a variety of materials. As a child progresses through Kindergarten, more emphasis is placed on math and reading readiness in preparation for first grade.
