Project Description

As children transition into independent learners our program will work with you to make sure they are in the best placement. We use word cards and photos to present new words; introduce high-quality children’s literature to promote a love of reading; encourage your pre-school child to practice writing letters and words; help your child recognize and read his or her own name; and use read-aloud times to practice reading. We encourage the exploration of the physical properties of materials; use daily calendar activities to teach about sequence of events, patterns, and routines; and support the learning of cognitive skills such as counting, estimating, making predictions, testing, and drawing conclusions.

Our voluntary prekindergarten or VPK gives children a jump start by preparing them for school and enhancing their pre-reading, pre-math, language and social skills. By developing the skills children need to become strong readers and students at an early age, children are more likely to be successful in school.
