Our Pre-Kindergarten Program
Our Pre-Kindergarten program utilizes Handwriting Without Tears, The Creative Curriculum, along with Teaching Strategies GOLD to develop enriched, cutting-edge, research-based lesson plans for our Pre Kindergarteners. A individual developmental portfolio assessment system is put into place for each child that joins our program. The I School is so much more than your typical daycare! This is the time in a child's life when academic skills develop and emerge.
Our Pre-Kindergarten program is created specifically to help each child develop the necessary skills for Kindergarten. Site words, word building, interactive reading, writing, and math are important components implemented in our daily curriculum. Daily small group activities give focus on social studies and language arts, teachers and students are involved in active discussion during this important curriculum component. The classroom provides a chance for both teacher-directed and child-initiated opportunities through learning centers. Learning centers contain activities such as arts and crafts, music and movement, science and investigations, computer awareness, gross and fine motor activities, dramatic play, transportation, construction, and cooking. Learning centers reinforce simple to complex concepts and allow room to strengthen thinking skills, encourage the promotion of life long skills such as sharing, conflict resolution, negotiating, and cooperation. Children get the oportunity every Friday
