Our Pre-K Program is for children that are four to five years of age and fully potty trained. We use a collaborative curriculum including Maine's Dept. of Education Pre-K For ME which supports Maine's Early Learning and Development Standards as well as the Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework. Some of our curriculum and activities are done together as a larger group and some are done in smaller groups. A typical day can consist of a variety of activities such as: Pledge of Allegiance, circle time, Bible time, letter recognition and sounds, story time, songs, math concepts, art, music and movement, outdoor play, science, character development, free play, gross motor and fine motor activities, and much more. This curriculum builds social-emotional skills, executive functions of the brain, language, literacy, math, vocabulary skills, and conceptual knowledge.
Individual portfolios are completed over the course of the year to document each child's progress in learning. These portfolios become a keepsake for the family at the end of the school year.
We encourage parent and caregiver participation and offer many events and activities throughout the year for families.
