Pre-Kindergarten

A Pre-Kindergartener's Passage

Pre-Kindergarten children are preparing for the adventure of a lifetime — Kindergarten! Our Pre-Kindergarten program is designed to get them ready by teaching letters and words, math concepts, and valuable social skills.

With small group instruction, independent play in an organized atmosphere, and large-group activities, children will have all the right skills to hop, skip, and jump into kindergarten.

Everything we do is designed for pre-kindergarten learning in our classroom. We teach through large and small group activities and centers. Our classroom is a very active place, and children learn best by doing. This is where centers come in. The centers involve certain areas of the classroom where a child may go to experience and explore reading writing, block play, literacy, and so on. The centers are related to the theme that we are studying at the time such as; apples, space, etc. We find that center time is often a child’s favorite time of the day. The best way that they can learn is by having fun!

Your Pre-Kindergartener’s early education at Heart 2 Heart

Our five areas of focus give your Pre-School child endless opportunities to learn and grow!

Communicating With Others

Heart 2 Heart helps your child improve important language skills. We use daily journal activities to practice writing skills; help your child's early reading skills by connecting sounds to letters through picture and word collages; teach basic sight words in fun and engaging ways; and develop phonemic awareness through literacy-based games, books, and puzzles.

Brain Development

Heart 2 Heart prepares your Pre-K child to reason and analyze. We encourage the use of the senses to explore different materials; create opportunities to ask and answer open-ended questions; experiment with spatial relationships; and promote an understanding of sequencing such as first, next, and last.

Making New Friends

Heart 2 Heart provide opportunities for your Pre-Kindergartener to practice social and emotional skills. We use character-building activities to help identify emotions; have group discussions to practice sharing ideas, thoughts, and feelings; and provide opportunities to cooperate, negotiate, problem-solve, and make independent choices.

Growing a Healthy Body

Heart 2 Heart helps your child strengthen physical abilities. We help to refine fine-motor skills through the use of scissors, stencils, lacing cards, and drawing tools; promote large-motor development with obstacle courses, balancing activities, and bikes; and encourage awareness of physical well-being and healthy eating habits.

Nurturing Creativity

Heart 2 Heart encourages your Pre-K child to think and create. We provide numerous opportunities for your child to represent ideas through drawing and writing stories; invent unique dance moves; use props to dramatize stories; and express independent thinking and expression through art and music.
