Activities in our pre-kinder room are all in preparation for kindergarten academically and socially. Children are busy writing their names, identifying some words, counting to 20, drawing shapes and following patterns. All of which are precursors to reading, writing and math. This class uses the Creative Curriculum to help plan activities that will address the skills children presently have and then presents them with new and challenging ones. Parents get to sit down with the teachers twice a year to share news about their child and to hear how they are progressing. Our goal is to prepare the whole family for kindergarten and the world of elementary school.
