Pre-school / VPK

Children three to five years old are developing advanced language skills and their vocabularies are expanding rapidly. With these new skills, they are better able to engage in cooperative learning activities with their peers. Children will embark on study units where they will be introduced to broad concepts through books, demonstrations, and hands-on materials with planned experiences that incorporate exposure to age-appropriate skills in math, science, social studies, music, art, and language. The children take an active role as the teacher serves as a facilitator and a co-learner who intentionally plans instruction based on observation, documentation, and analysis of student progress. Learning is based on relationships and social interaction with peers as well as adults.
