Our Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) programs is a high quality opportunity for all four year old children who are craving educational experiences. We currently offer a school year and summer VPK Program. Our program enthusiastically incorporates and captivates children in emergent literacy and writing skills, allowing for hands-on learning in a developmentally appropriate environment. Our classrooms are fittingly equipped for language, science, math, music, art, dramatic and block play. Alongside the standard benchmarks, the Wee Learn and Creative curriculum is also utilized.
Assessments are done three times a year and there is reinforcement aid in place for referrals or possible developmental delays.
Our VPK program is from 8:00 am – 11:35am. We also offer wrap around care for working parents up until 6:00 p.m. and before-school care as early as 7:00 am.
