3 to 5 years

Our Pre-Kindergarten program encourages  and structures around kindergarten readiness along with our High Scope Curriculum.  Our lessons are led by a certified teacher responsible for scaffolding and encouraging further development in creativity, organization, conceptualization, literature, oration, leading, life/social skills,  backyard science, art expression, music & movement and show & tell (promoting self-confidence).   

Going beyond preschool development, our pre-kindergarters are confident as they build on more knowledge pertaining to our Starfall Reading Program, Music Preludes and Professeur Toto (French).  Their sentence structure begins with matching and sight words, File Folder Games while promoting small group structure and turn-taking.  Starfall Reading Program consists of basic sentence structures, phonemic, vowels, syllables and sounding words. Our pre-kindergarters' reading skills start to connect as they discover and build upon their discovery/recognition of sight words.  

Our pre-kindergartners continue participating in various community events and outings to SOPAC, Bus Trips, Community Helpers, etc…their indepencence in many classroom job responsibilities.  We continue to encourage parent participation with Volunteerism and Family Storytime.  At the end of the school year, our pre-kindergarten graduation includes individual poems and songs celebrating all of their individual accomplishments. Little Stages proudly embraces all stages of our children's individual development.
