The Pre-K 2 and Pre-K 3 rooms are focused on preparing its children for success in the classroom as well as later on in kindergarten. A large part of our day is spent working on vital social skills. Learning how to play with one another and effectively expressing one's thoughts and feelings is a major milestone for four and five year olds. Our goal is to teach every child to become a problem solver; to resolve conflicts with each other by talking about it and coming to a solution that all agree on. This is a skill that will greatly benefit them in the future. Developing social skills are of even greater importance than learning the alphabet or counting to twenty. They lay a foundation in which more academic achievements can be built on.
The philosophy behind the Creative Curriculum is that children learn best through play.
