In our pre-K rooms we are getting ready for Kindergarten!
Studies indicate that children who attend pre-K enter kindergarten with larger vocabularies, stronger basic math skills and better pre-reading skills than children who do not attend.
While many pre-K programs focus on the basics of letter and number recognition or reading skills, our program prepares for kindergarten readiness by encompassing more than a few isolated skills. We look at the whole child and feed all the skills and strengths that makes each child unique.
Kangaroo: 4 to 5 years
