The Pre-Kindergarten classroom is structured to provide a positive, flexible, and relaxed environment for the purpose of achieving desired goals. Opportunities to explore, discover, experiment, create, understand, and learn are ongoing. A variety of experiences provided in the Pre-Kindergarten learning environment result in a unique abundance of behavioral, academic and social growth for the Pre-Kindergarten child. Social graces are taught and stressed. The classroom is divided into various work areas: art, manipulatives, blocks, housekeeping, language, math and science.
