Our PRE-KINDERGARTEN PROGRAM educates children from four years through five years of age. Our program is structured to recognize a child’s “whole” self. By using this philosophy, we focus on a child’s emotional as well as academic growth. These years are very crucial to a child’s positive development in all areas. A child is encouraged to explore the world around them in both “free play” centers as well as more structured centers such as reading, writing, and science. Our weekly lesson plans include an opportunity to learn a second language such as Spanish, French, or Sign Language. Computer enrichment classes are offered to children in this program as well as a curriculum that reinforces standards set forth by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and the State of Delaware Department of Education. We have attached a developmental outline that summarizes the areas that we focus on in this program.
