PK Program

When education is an adventure, the joy of learning begins and students develop the skills and confidence needed for a strong foundation for kindergarten and beyond!

Our prekindergarten program offers a developmentally appropriate, play-based curriculum designed to stimulate and challenge our youngest students as they begin their journey as lifelong learners. In a warm and nurturing atmosphere, children experience creative, purposeful, and collaborative opportunities that inspire curiosity and instill a love of learning. Our young explorers develop social, emotional, cognitive, and physical skills in an environment rich in opportunities for exploration. Discovery-based learning builds upon individual strengths and talents to nurture the unique potential of each learner while promoting a positive community within a diverse and respectful classroom. In addition to its emphasis on social and emotional development, our prekindergarten program offers our students instruction in language, literacy, and math. The curriculum also includes special subjects such as Spanish, art, science, engineering, library, and music/creative movement.
