In the Preschool (Pre-K) classrooms, children receive an unparalleled preparation for Kindergarten:
- Teachers continue the Addison-Wesley Active Learning Series program with Active Learning for Fours.
- Pal-A-Roo’s employs The Letter People Kindergarten, which provides a comprehensive language experience that develops reading, handwriting, auditory and oral-language skills. This Kindergarten curriculum appears in many advanced private elementary schools, making Pal-A-Roo’s graduates more prepared and advanced than most of their peers in Kindergarten.
- Pal-A-Roo’s supplements these programs with the Addison-Wesley Mathematics Their Way program, which introduces math through unifix cubes, counters, pattern blocks, and other hands-on tools.
- Integrated computer learning encourages digital literacy with monitored age-appropriate software.
Pal-A-Roo’s provides an annual cap and gown ceremony for our graduating preschoolers. This heartwarming event gives families wonderful memories of their time at Pal-A-Roo’s and celebrates the graduates’ achievements.
For five-year-olds, we offer a Transitional Kindergarten program. These children move into the Summer Camp classroom during the summer months and experience field trips. With no nap-time and increased behavioral responsibility, many parents find our Transitional Kindergarten program to be an excellent half-step for children beginning Kindergarten in the fall. For more information about this popular program, please visit our Summer Camp page.
