In our Pre-K classes, children develop autonomy by practicing self-help/life skills, develop a deeper sense of self by exploring personal interests, become more confident through interactions with peers and teachers, and learn about what it means to be a member of a group. As teachers, we facilitate this learning to take place by planning with intention. we selct activities that address our unique group of students’ needs and strengths. Age-level activities such as field trips, a Thanksgiving Feast, and Apple Festival allow Pre-K classes to join together for special learning opportunities. Special visits from fire fighters and others enrich the curriculum.
