Fall Pre-kindergarten (VPK)

We offer an all inclusive VPK program with small classroom sizes and very low teacher to children ratio. Our well rounded program incorporates the use of several enrichments classes, field trips, and specialty techniques. Our program includes enrichments classes such as Spanish and Music/Creative Movement. Our classes have additional field trips throughout the school year that correlate to our curriculum, “Let’s Begin with the Letter People”.

Let’s Begin with the Letter People is a program designed to enhance early language and literacy skills. The program targets many areas of language development including building letter knowledge, phonological awareness, language and motivation to read, development of vocabulary, and receptive and expressive language development. The Let’s Begin program also has a special emphasis on letter knowledge and phonological awareness.  

We offer many opportunities throughout the year for families to join in the fun and excitement. A few of the family events are: Octoberfest, Thanksgiving Feast/show, Holiday show/party, Bedtime Stories/Crafts with Mrs. Claus, Pictures with Santa, Summer Olympics, and of course our spectacular VPK Graduation.
