K-Prep for 4 & 5 Year Olds
K-Prep, our class for 4 to 5 year olds, is a year of wonder as play and learning experiences intertwine for the acquisition of more concrete interpersonal and academic skills. Students continue to grow in their abilities to work independently and as a member of a group.
The K-Prep 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. Teachers 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.
