The Pre-Kindergarten Program welcomes children into a bright community of learners focused on essential foundational skills to ease your child’s transition to kindergarten and aid in a successful year. Program objectives were developed from the Virginia’s Early Childhood Development Alignment Project and Virginia Standards of Learning (SOLs) and are presented within a developmentally appropriate curriculum. Emphases include phonics, handwriting, emergent math, social preparation, and kindergarten readiness. We take pride in our Pre-K teachers’ ability to provide structured learning environments and guide their children’s intellectual learning through a balance of self-directed, purposeful play, guided centers, and large group activities. All Pre-K children are assessed using Parent Progress Reports developed from the Virginia’s Early Childhood Development Alignment Project to ensure your child is meeting developmental objectives. As part of our extended curriculum, all Pre-Kindergarten programs participate in our Technology Lab, Spanish, Physical Education, and Music Classes. Half-day and all-day options are available.
