Pre-K offers an opportunity for exposure to many different concepts that will prepare young learners for Kindergarten and beyond. The classroom is staffed with a fully certified teacher and full-time aide.

All concepts are taught within a weekly unit theme such as polar bears, Christmas, weather, fire safety, fall, dinosaurs, winter, zoo animals and so on. Fun arts and crafts activities accompany these units (as well as science or social studies themes), which allow children to develop their fine motor skills. Children learn how the classroom functions and how to relate to their classmates all while maintaining a fun, joy-filled atmosphere.
