Pre-Kindergarten - Ready, Set, GO!

1/10
In the Pre-K class, we tend to have four year olds with fall birthdays (that have missed the date cut-off for kindergarten) or new five year olds with summer birthdays who choose another year of preschool.  Our teachers meet the children where they are to expand on their academic skills, in a fun, play-based classroom.  The Pre-K class enjoys additional field trips and lots of hands-on learning with science experiments and cooking in class!
