This enrichment program is designed for students preparing to enter Pre-K3 or Pre-K4. Through individualized instruction and small group digital instruction, children are put on a path to educational excellence. Teachers foster an environment that provides the basic foundations for reading and math readiness while nurturing social development and promoting physical fitness and an appreciation for the arts. Students develop listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills, including sight word recognition, reading comprehension, expressive language, vocabulary building, phonological awareness, and letter recognition and sounds. Students also get a jumpstart on the foundations for math, such as identifying relationships and patterns, developing spatial awareness, number patterns, and measurement through hands-on exploration.
