Our Yellow Pre-Kindergarten Program for 4-year-old and young 5-year-old children enrolls 10 children with 2 teachers and provides a semi-structured, social and active peer level learning experience in a smaller setting. Morning, afternoon and full day programs are available.

Teachers: Ms. Cindy and Ms. Lori

Our pre-kindergarten program enrolls up to ten children with two teachers and is designed to meet the needs and interests of older four-year-olds and young five-year-olds as they continue to prepare for their kindergarten experience. These children have the opportunity to participate in different, higher-level activities for literacy and learning in a teacher directed setting with a smaller peer group.

Our integrated curriculum, with intentionally planned activities and centers, are created around the interests of the children to support their cognitive, creative and physical development while providing time for further social and emotional growth. Through observation and assessment, curriculum is adapted to meet the developmental needs of each child as well as provide them with challenging opportunities. The daily schedule balances time for free-choice and outdoor play as well as structured learning activities. Our weekly curriculum includes activities which focus on letter and sound recognition, reading and writing skills, and math and science concepts. Listening and writing centers are available along with scheduled computer time offering educational programs for children to explore planned The afternoon curriculum consists of extension activities in language arts, math, social studies, science and creative arts. Yoga and relaxation techniques are integrated into the full day schedule along with a 30-minute quiet time during which children listen to music and recorded stories.

This program offers a three day minimum enrollment with a flexible choice of days. Although recommended enrollment for this program is full day, accommodations can be made for families desiring a half day program either morning or afternoon.
