Pre-Kindergarten Program

Once in our Pre-Kindergarten classrooms, our teachers take the hands-on learning approach to a new level. Math, science, language, reading, writing, art and more pave the way to preparing children for Kindergarten.   .

Our Pre-K program is designed to get the children ready for Kindergarten from both an academic and social standpoint. We continue to use non-religous components of  the Abeka curriculum and supplement this with other learning tools from the Katy Independent School District (Katy ISD) to get the kids Kindergarten ready. From an academic standpoint, we want the children to be confident when entering Kindergarten. While some children may be reading at the end of Pre-K, we believe that the children also need an equal dose of learning through play in order to develop the social skills to be successful in a larger classroom setting. 

We continue to emphasize center based play and small group activities in order to develop the social skills necessary to be successful in Kindergarten. Setting routines and expectations for acceptable behavior becomes even more critical so that the children can be successful in school.

The Pre-K classrooms have their own playgrounds that include playground equipment, riding toys, and a basketball hoop.  There is also a an open field for football and soccer.     

During the school year, the Pre-K classrooms will take several field trips to nearby activities including an HEB tour, local parks and a local pumpkin patch.  The children also get to participate during the in-house field trips that include ceramics, cookie decorating and puppet shows. The Pre-K children also get to participate in a weekly exercise program called “Stretch & Grow”. 

At the end of each school year, the Pre-K students get to participate in a Pre-K graduation ceremony that includes songs, dances and diploma presentations.  This is often a highlight as parents, and grandparents alike, get to watch and participate.

Pre-Kindergarten Program

Our Pre-Kindergarten classrooms are for children that have already turned four years old. We offer both full day Pre-K daycare programs as well as 1/2 day Pre-K daycare programs for children that also attend the ½ day Alief ISD Pre-K Program. We now offer midday drop-off and pick-up for kids who attend select 1/2 day Pre-K programs on Alief campuses.

As part of our partnership with Alief ISD, all of the Pre-K classrooms were recently outfitted with new furniture, toys and learning materials.   Handwriting centers, listening centers and science centers, among others, have been designed to capture the childrens’ attention and are part of the daily center rotation.  iPads are used throughout the year for learning based activities and games provided by Alief ISD.

Pre-Kindergarten Curriculum

Our Pre-K classrooms follow the Frog Street Press curriculum and a learning centers based approach to learning. We also use Handwriting Without Tears and other resources from Scholastic to prepare our children for a seamless and successful transition to Kindergarten. Teachers use developmental checklists, Kindergarten math and phonics exercises and the latest learning tools (iPADS) enveloped in a weekly thematic topic.

Through our partnership with Alief ISD, our Pre-K classrooms accept children who qualify for the Alief ISD Pre-K Programs and we follow the Alief ISD Frog Street Press curriculum along with all of their other assessment and training requirements. We save samples of each child’s work in a portfolio so that parents can view the development over the course of the school year. These are generally shared at parent-teacher conferences scheduled for December and May.
The Pre-K classrooms have their own large, shaded playgrounds that include swings and a basketball hoop. There is also a large open field for football and soccer. Additionally, Pre-K uses the gym on rainy and hot days to take advantage of additional play and learning experiences including riding toys, parachute play, soccer and basketball.

Each year, the Pre-K classrooms participate fully in the planting of the vegetable garden and their teachers take them through the garden on a regular basis to look at the growth and participate in the harvesting of vegetables.

At the end of each school year, the Pre-K students get to participate in a Pre-K graduation ceremony that includes songs, dances and diploma presentations.  This is often a highlight as parents, and grandparents alike, get to watch and participate.

Uniforms

Children attending our Pre-K program wear a basic uniform consisting of Khaki bottoms (pants, shorts, or skirts) and Hunter Green tops.
