What makes pre-school fun? What makes a child want to learn? It is a graduate program like ours. Our safe and enriching program focuses on all aspects of creative learning. Hands on activities encompass exciting monthly themes which include nutrition, cooking, holidays, dinosaurs and safety, to name just a few.
The VPK’s rotate to a variety of learning centers which offer items to help stimulate young imaginative minds. Literacy is introduced with the letter of the week, creative writing and circle time readings.
Calendar time introduces them to the days of the week and the months of the year. Patterns, graphing, simple math and science activities are included in the weekly program.
Music, movement, and playground times are a favorite part of each day. The children’s art is proudly displayed around the room. Fine motor skills are used daily as they participate in themed take home projects. Their individuality is appreciated and their achievements are applauded.
Positive discipline methods are used so the children do not feel singled out or embarrassed. Preparing these young minds for kindergarten is a primary goal of the teachers as they encourage verbal skills, teach self-help skills and promote self assurance.
Our VPK class scored a 95% in 2015! Every year our children are reading by the time they graduate!
