Pre-Kindergarten - Full Day
(4 years old by August 31st)
Online Registration for 2015-2016 will begin March 23, 2015.
The Core Knowledge Pre-K sequence identifies skill and knowledge competencies in all areas – Physical Well-Being and Motor Development, Social and Emotional Development, Approaches to Learning, Language Development, and Knowledge Acquisition & Cognitive Development. This program provides everyone – teachers, parents and children with a clear vision of the learning experiences and expectations.
The Reggio Inspired Pre-K approach to teaching young children puts the natural development of children as well as the close relationships that they share with their environment at the center of its philosophy. Parents are a vital component to the Reggio philosophy and are viewed as partners, collaborators and advocates for their children. The teacher is considered a co-learner and collaborator with the child and not just an instructor. Teachers are encouraged to facilitate the child’s learning by planning activities and lessons based on the child’s interests, asking questions to further understanding, and actively engaging in the activities alongside the child.
All pre-K programs are taught by a certified teacher and staffed with an assistant. Class size is limited to 20 students with a 10:1 student/teacher ratio. Our full day pre-K programs are offered Monday - Friday 8:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. with before and after extended school care as an option. This program is available for families residing in Chandler and the surrounding cities.
