Our Pre-K program provides important guidance and intentional direction as well as, equips these children to successfully transition into kindergarten. Believing that strong social skills and maturity are a foundation to all future school experiences, we continue to provide a social framework where children further deepen their relationship skills, i.e. problem solving, negotiating with peers.
