Setting the Stage for Kindergarten

The Pre-Kindergarten program is for preparing children ages four to five for Kindergarten.

In Pre-K, they begin to develop the social, academic, and emotional skills they need to enjoy a lifetime of learning. In a warm, nurturing environment, they experience the delight of self-reliance, the joy of being part of a group, and the thrill of learning.

The Pre-K program helps children explore the world through a series of weekly themes:

  • Friendship
  • Hibernation
  • Penguins

The themes inspire the week’s learning centers at which children become actively engaged in lessons in a variety of areas, including: 

  • Math
  • Early Reading Literacy
  • Technology
  • Science
  • Religion

Our pre-K students also have the unique opportunity to meet with our fifth-grade Language Ambassadors, who visit the class bi-weekly to introduce the students to Spanish.

The Pre-K program consists of Five Half-Days a Week (8:30 – 11:30 am)

Option in mid-winter of adding one full day

Pre-K students enjoy a wide variety of learning opportunities:

  • Physical education in the Robert J. Nolan Gymnasium
  • Computer training in our technology lab
  • New letter of the alphabet each week
  • Learning shapes and sounds
  • Projects that help develop fine motor, visual and handwriting skills
