Our Program

Our Program

Pre-K is your child's last stop before kindergarten. Our pre-k program is designed for students 4-5 years old. The NYS ratio for pre-k students is 8:1.

Our Pre-K class is themed on Eric Litwin's popular Pete the Cat stories. Our 4 year olds are our Cool Cats.

Our Program

We continue to provide all diapers and wipes until students are full potty trained. We also provide breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack. We ask that our families provide the following:

  1. Extra clothes (at least two full outfits)
  2. A blanket and sheet for nap time

Curriculum

Each week our Pre-K teachers plan activities based on a weekly theme or topic. Our lesson plans are assessment based and our teachers follow NY Early Learning Standards. Each day your preschooler will participate in an art project or tactile activity, a gross motor exercise (indoor or outdoor), songs/finger plays, and theme-related books.

Assessments and Conferences

Our teachers make regular observations to track developmental progress. Several times a year we will do a formal evaluation of your child's progress here at school. You will be given the opportunity to schedule a parent/teacher conference twice a year; once in the fall and once in the spring. You will be able to review the evaluation and discuss your child's academic/developmental progress with the teachers and caregivers. Please remember that all children develop at their own pace, and the purpose of our evaluations is to help us plan and individualize your child's education.
