Pre - K

 

Pre-K services four and five year olds.  We align this age group with the Douglas County School District age cutoff calendar so your young one is ready to hit the ground running when they leave us.  This age group focuses primarily on the A Beka curriculum as well as learning through experience. At this age group the children are able to go on field trips for the first time in their lives. At this age we are working on their letters, numbers, handwriting, reading, word recognition, second language (Spanish), science, math, social studies along with singing songs and playing social interactive games. This age group also goes on field trips in the fall and spring.  The Pre-K group is actively involved in our annual Christmas Pageant.  We have open door policy and would love for you to come and share a fun experience with your child.
