Pre-Kindergarten

  • Students enrolled in our Pre-K programs are getting ready for kindergarten, and they're learning a lot more than their ABCs. A primary goal of the programs is to provide students with instruction in language and literacy, math, science, as well as social and self-care skills. Students get hands-on instruction through activities in the classroom, preparing them for the next step in their schooling—kindergarten!
