Our PreK classes provide developmentally appropriate whole group and small group hands on activities.  PreK is a time for children to learn school routines, practice social skills, practice reading readiness skills, and learn to love school! We are a “School Family.” The language rich environment exposes children to many opportunities to experiment with words, letters, and sounds. Number sense begins to develop as students work with numberals and objects to learn the relationship between them.

We Are Bucket Fillers!

Everyone carries an invisible bucket of feelings.  We want to fill those buckets with kind words and actions to build others up and make them feel good. We do not want to be a bucket dipper, who dips out those good feelings by being unkind and hurtful, which is what a bully does.
