Pre-K provides a rigorous academic preschool education for children. Classes focus on teaching children to:
- see themselves as capable learners.
- develop reading, writing and math skills.
- work well with other children and adults.
This year we are exploring ourselves and our community, the natural world, and changes over time. We use the Saint Paul Public School’s Curriculum, Discovering Our World. We are learning about many fascinating topics through literature, hands-on exploration, and experiments. Our classroom is full of possibilities!
