K-Prep 4 (Ages 4-5)
K-Prep 4 is a year of wonder as play and learning experiences intertwine for more formal learning of concrete skills. Students continue to grow in their abilities to work independently and as a member of a group. The K-Prep II curriculum promotes the child’s ability to confidently articulate his/her thoughts and ideas, gain an understanding of letter-sound associations through the exploration of letters, sounds, and words, and build a strong number sense through games and activities. As teachers, we observe the students at play and create a program that nurtures their interests and cultivates their natural curiosity. Learning to share and working as a team are part of our learning process. Highlights of the year include Pajama Day, animal research projects followed by a trip to the Maryland Zoo, and the class play.
