Pre-Kindergarten (4 years)
Children’s developing ability to organize their own play, assign roles and tasks, and work towards a common goal. Staff interaction focuses on assisting children to organize information they gather, develop and understand number concepts, practice reasoning/problem solving, and expand communication skills. Teachers create a print rich environment with signs, labels and charts and provide daily opportunities to draw, paint and engage in writing activities. Children practice writing, phonetic awareness, letter recognition and math skills in small and large group activities. Our centers participate in the Texas School Ready! Program and use curriculum provided by the Texas Education Agency that focuses on preparing children to enter school Kindergarten ready! Children are increasingly involved in helping understand the importance of positive and caring behaviors, while learning to appropriately identify and express their emotions. Social and emotional development continues to mature by fostering positive self-esteem, empathy, and independence.
