Accelerated Pre-K offers your child the opportunity to discover what kindergarten is really like. While achieving critical skills for elementary school, they get accustomed to the structure and format of a kindergarten school day. With award-winning and nationally recognized early childhood programs and curricula, reading, writing, and math lessons are at a kindergarten level.
This program for young 5-year-olds and older 4-year-olds helps them focus on:
Children use imaginative and pretend play as they try on different costumes and roles, and use social-emotional skills to make sense of their world.
Children learn how things work and fit together, by using different materials to construct their own creations.
Children get to explore their creative side, while developing problem-solving and self-expression skills, through different art techniques and color concepts.
Children use their investigate skills to experiment with different science and math concepts. This exploration helps develop critical-thinking skills.
Letter and word recognition and formation, using sounds to segment words, and putting sounds together to make words are all ways that children work to develop effective written communication abilities.
Surrounded by books, children develop key literacy skills such as story reasoning, print awareness, and word recognition in this center.
In Accelerated Pre-K, children are prepared for kindergarten with pre-K learning experiences in science, social studies, the art, literacy and math. Award-winning, nationally recognized, research-based curricula is offered:
Literacy by Design™: Balancing experiences for the whole class and small groups, as well as independent learning activities, this curriculum creates a strong connection between reading and writing. The tools are provided to encourage and inspire students with the art of active literacy, while meeting all appropriate state standards.
McGraw-Hill Everyday Mathematics®: This program is used by more than 4.3 million students and was developed by the University of Chicago School Mathematics Project. With research-based, field-tested strategies that explore basic and conceptual math thinking, this curriculum produces lifelong mathematical power in students.
Handwriting Without Tears®: By learning to properly form letters, handwriting becomes a simple, automatic skill for students. This unique program was designed by occupational therapists and has been shown to produce improvements in letter size, spacing, and overall legibility for students.
In this classroom, children will achieve significant developments in five important benchmark areas:
Recognizing and naming all upper and lowercase letters of the alphabet; putting different sounds together to create short words.
Using concrete materials when approaching and solving problems; counting to find out how many items in a group up to 10.
Demonstrating knowledge of and using terms that are related to location, direction, and distance.
Displaying the ability to compromise in a situation of conflict; speaking up and asking questions to further explore classroom topics.
Conflict can be an excellent source for learning, if facilitated properly, and in a peaceful way.
