This classroom has been designed as an important stepping stone to elementary school. Here, children make significant developmental gains, communicate more successfully, and learn to work well both independently and in group situations.
The Pre-K program provides a focus on:
Creativity, problem-solving, and self-expression are developed in this center, as children discover different art techniques, color concepts, and cooperation.
Children build hand-eye coordination and practice inventiveness, as they develop goal-setting and critical-thinking skills by counting, sorting, and patterning.
Through cooperative pretend play, children develop early writing and reading skills, explore emotional expression, and learn how to make sense of real life.
Children begin to think critically about numbers and math concepts, such as addition and subtraction, while sorting, ordering, and using measuring tools.
Children love to move, dance, and sing. This center helps them to work on physical coordination, cooperation, and communication while having fun.
Classification, analysis, predicting, and experimenting are all skills children will use in this area, while exploring physical and earth science concepts, including plant and animal lifecycles.
Story reasoning, print awareness, and word recognition are some of the significant literacy skills children begin to develop in this area.
Children will begin to communicate through writing, as they work on letter and word recognition and formation, segmenting words into sounds, and putting sounds together to make words.
Through our Empowered Child™curriculum, inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach, secure relationships with responsive, respectful adults enable children to develop trust and independence, and inspire strong learning. Using a digital less planning tool, Childtime teachers customize curriculum to meet each child’s individual needs, observing and assessing overall performance, and advancing children through 10 developmental scales:
Measures children’s ability to plan, set goals, and interact with others and with the environment.
Measures children’s ability to express ideas and feelings through music, movement, visual arts, and drama.
Measures children’s expressive and receptive vocabulary and their ability to use conversation skills and vocabulary to communicate effectively.
Measures children’s phonological awareness, alphabet knowledge, reading, and writing skills.
Measures children’s sequencing, problem-solving, and symbolic and critical-thinking skills.
Measures children’s ability to understand numbers, patterns, sorting, and ordering, as well as the ability to use numbers to add, subtract, measure, and graph.
Measures children’s understanding of the natural and physical world, as well as their ability to observe, describe, predict, and gather data.
Measures children’s understanding of themselves, their families, communities, and their world.
Measures children’s fine and gross motor skills and their understanding of health and nutrition.
...children’s brains are more alert when they are moving. This is why it can be so important to incorporate movement into educational activities, such as practicing literacy skills.
