Pre-Kindergarten Little Sparks Program
Pre-Kindergarten children are naturally curious about the world around them. They are eager to see, listen, touch, smell, and taste things they encounter. At the same time they are developing skills for effective communication and learning to work with other children.
Mathematics-learning challenges the children to explore ideas about patterns and relationships, order and predictability, logic and meaning. Instruction encourages children’s thinking and nurtures children’s exploration and ideas. These include concepts of number, pattern, measurement, shape, space, and classification.
Becoming a successful reader is dependent upon a child’s experience and knowledge in listening, speaking, reading and writing. These experiences are encouraged and provided daily.
For admission consideration, children must be 4 by September 30th of the given school year. Additionally, all children must be completely potty trained for enrollment. Please see our Admission page for the application procedures and tuition information.
