Welcome to the Jr. Pre Classroom

Children in our Jr. Pre Clasroom continue their growth and development of tactile and gross motor skills. Some of the many skills developed in this program include letter recognition, spelling their first and last names, number recognition, enhancing problem solving skills, and fine motor skills such as cutting, gluing , and writting. Social and emotional development, appropriate manners, safety, and refinement of social skills and independence is emphasized in this classroom.

Play Based Learning

The philosophy behind our curriculum is that young children learn best by doing. Learning isn’t just repeating what someone else says; it requires active thinking and experimenting to find out how things work and to learn firsthand about the world we live in. In their early years, children explore the world around them by using all their senses and having fun! Check out one of our lesson plans plans to explore how we use intentional fun to foster development.

Multicultural Studies

A diverse classroom is one in which both the students and the teacher are accepting of all people, regardless of their race, culture, or religion. This acceptance is evidenced by the books we read, the activities that are completed and the lessons that are taught.

Our program utilizes observation based assessments to complete individualized portfolios for each child. A developmental profile is used to scaffold each child's learning and is shared with family members during our Fall and Spring Parent/Teacher conferences.
