Why Pre-K?

The class sizes of Pre-K are small so students get lots of individual attention from their teachers.  Learning activities encourage students to be creative and curious and prepare them to be successful in reading, math, science, and the arts.


Young children need both the structure of a group learning experience and the freedom to explore and develop their talents and interests.  A developmentally appropriate Pre-K curriculum provides both.


It is now well known that children are ready to learn in a school setting during their early childhood years. In fact, children who attend Pre-K tend to be more successful than those who don’t.  Pre-K offers experiences to develop competence in language, fine and gross motor, reasoning, and socialization.  It is a great first step in becoming comfortable and successful student.
