Children enjoy playing and learning together. Pre-school is a special experience because it is based on children’s choice of activity. If a child wants to spend time building with blocks, or playing in the housekeeping area, the teachers support that choice.
Teachers work hard to encourage language and social skills. These are important for children because Kindergarten is a high stakes arena for all students. Pre-school helps children prepare for the rigors of elementary school.
