4 - 5 years
SLA's Pre-K program prepares children academically and socially for a smooth transition into Kindergarten. Our curriculum is uniquely modeled to correspond with the curriculum and activities of Kindergarten. The children will build on previous foundations such as mathematics, language arts, science, art, geography and social studies. Emphasis is placed on the importance social emotional growth with an emphasis on compassion, sharing, communicating, problem solving, thinking critically, taking turns, working independently and working in groups.
The children engage in gross motor activities indoors and outdoors (weather permitting). Activities focus on study patterns, developing their senses, forming ideas, participation and relating differences and similarities. Theme-based activities are introduced weekly to help expand the children’s knowledge. In this program each child continues on with the second level of a Phonics Workbook.
