About our Pre-Kindergarten Program

Ages 4yrs. to 5.5years

Pre-Kindergarten is a wonderful time when children’s minds and abilities are developing quickly. This is why Play ‘N’ Learn has developed a well-balanced curriculum to address the needs of the whole child. Not only are academic needs addressed, but emotional and social development is given high priority as well. It is this “whole child” approach that has allowed our children to reach success both here at Play ‘N’ Learn and beyond at other well-respected educational institutions.

The average Pre-Kindergarten lesson lasts quite a bit longer than a preschool class lesson. At this age, your child can sit longer and focus on more intricate and purpose driven projects. Here, they will work both individually and in small groups to learn to solve problems. Each child is encouraged to explore their own creativity with projects that support and help develop their natural abilities.

Play ‘N’ Learn recognizes that most children will leave our Pre-Kindergarten classes straight for a Kindergarten classroom. To that end, we strive to ensure each child is given every possible tool they need to not only succeed in their future academic pursuits, but excel. While the typical classroom is being stringently “cut-back” to save the educational budgets – Play ‘N’ Learn is “pushing forward” to save the education of our future, the education of our children.
