Pre-K Program

Our pre-K 3- and 4-year-old programs are delivered in separate classrooms. Our goal is to provide a learning environment in which children are comfortable, happy, and are achieving and building on skills which are developmentally appropriate. Throughout the day, we provide activities in each learning center. We begin our morning with “circle time,” which incorporates music and movement, math, literacy, and science into our weekly theme.

Kids at Play acknowledges the fact that children are the future generation. Therefore, it is our responsibility to instill values and provide an educational program which prepares children to become great men and women of their generation, as they excel physically, emotionally, spiritually, cognitively, and academically. As part of a family, our children will take part in the Charismas Concert, Thanksgiving, praise and worship dance and team, Month of the Young Child, Dr. Sues’ birthday, Literacy Month, the book fair, Black History Month, and Multicultural Day.

                               Program Focus for Pre-K 3- and 4-year-olds:

 

                  All programs and activities are developmentally appropriate:

  • Small group activity: provides focus and attention to complete a complex or simple activity.
  •  Large group activity: instills daily lessons, routines, and activities to enlighten the day, help children develop specialized skills from lessons, etc. Children gain a sense of community and their environment.
  •  One-on-one activity: provides individual attention in writing, mathematics, and literacy. We teach children how to read with basic books and sight words every day.
  •  Choice time: exposes children to a rich learning environment in which they can use their individual skills to experiment, imitate, build, read, and play.
  • Literacy time: allows children to make connections between stories and their personal experiences, develop and build comprehension skills, recognize familiar words, build vocabularies, make proper sentences, retell a story in their own words and through pictures, identify main ideas, and learn sequences.
  • Specialized activities: inter-graded science projects which develop concrete science activity through experimenting, measuring, adding, subtracting, sorting, and classifying

                      

                      Children's artwork

    We love displaying your child's artwork in the classroom. Public display encourages our budding artists and reminds them that their hard work has meaning and conveys their thoughts and creativity.
