The Pre-K class is an emergent curriculum classroom that fosters independence, cooperation and a love of learning through play-based, developmentally appropriate centers and hands-on learning. The children learn at their own pace through exploration, extended periods of free choice play, observation and inquiry while engaging in activities that they have expressed an interest in.

 

There are opportunities throughout the morning for children to play independently, to play in small groups and to be engaged in large group activities such as circle time. Many skills and concepts are learned throughout the year in several different areas including:
