Our Pre-K Program
Our Pre-K teachers work with the Handwriting without Tears/Get Set for School program. This program is developmentally appropriate so that children develop a foundation for physical and social behavioral skills as well as language and number skills.
Children in Pre-K have a wide variety of skills. Some may have exceptional motor skills, while others may excel in socialization. We can’t assume that children will do well in all areas, which is why many of our activities (although specific to fostering early math, literacy, and writing skills) have social and motor components.
Our activities help children to develop self-concept, self-regulation, personal initiative, emotional understanding, and relationships with adults and peers. We want them to have positive self-esteem, learn to engage in classroom activities, transition appropriately, take initiative, understand feelings, and take turns sharing and playing with their friends.
