The preschool class has children ages four to five years old. The children continue to learn and develop their social and academic skills through a more structured work time. They are taught their basic shapes, patterning skills, letters/sounds of the alphabet, and how to decode 3 letter phonetic words. Handwriting is introduced and reinforced with writing their names, numbers, and letters. Number identification and simple addition are part of the math curriculum.
Students continue to expand their social skills as they play together and make lasting friendships. Highlights of the year are guest visitors (Zoomobile, Coyote Point Museum, the Police and Fire departments, etc...) and educational field trips to museums, the pumpkin farm and the library.
