Your child will be allowed to choose which center he or she wants to go to, and to move to another center when ready. These centers will include blocks, table games, pretend , discovery, art, writing, computer and library. Each will be carefully set up to provide specific learning experiences for your child, and will be changed at regular intervals.Learning centers provide children with many advantages. The are allowed to make their own choices, and are free to learn independently and at their own level of development. Centers invite children to learn with hands-on experience by seeing, talking, feeling, listening, and touching. Also, the teachers are free to work with children one at a time and to watch their progress as individuals.Daily ScheduleBelow is a peek at what the Pre-K day looks like:Shared Reading & WritingBoard WorkCenters TimeClean Up/ ShareLunch & SnackTech TimeMusic & MovementGroup TimeOutside PlayStorytimeSchool is GREAT, School is FUN, Ready or Not, Pre-K Here We Come!
