Pre-Kindergarten Four’s

During the ages of 4-5, children are continuing to learn about themselves, and their feelings. They have a growing vocabulary, and are ever more creative and imaginative.  Our curriculum uses an integrated approach to learning that supports each child’s interests, abilities, talents and culture.  The Pre-K program has been created to provide daily hands-on exploration of materials to foster your child’s learning experience and understanding of their world.  Our Pre-kindergarten program is designed to provide experiences for developing skills in:

  • Gaining confidence in self-sufficiency in a classroom environment.
  • Gaining confidence in following a classroom routine.
  • Pre reading foundations: upper and lower case letter recognition, letter/sound correspondence, left to right progression
  • Math concepts: patterning, one-to one correspondence, geometry, number recognition 1-20, ordinal numbers
  • Writing skills: letter formation, spacing, left to right progression, proper pencil grip
  • Recognizing and writing first and last name
  • Social interaction and peer negotiations
  • Fostering Independence in self-help skills such as, packing/unpacking backpack, zipping coat
  • Problem solving

Some learning activities that will be offered to your child during our mornings at TBA are:

  • Daily Calendar/Circle time
  • Letter of the week: letter books, whiteboard practice, show and share, letter/sound
  • Number books and activities
  • Art projects that involve tracing, cutting, coloring, painting
