Pre-Kindergarten (4 years by Sept. 1)
Through an integrated approach, centers and thematic units will connect all areas of the curriculum, build concepts and add meaning to real-life experiences. Reading and writing become an integral part of the classroom as students rotate through their “team” of teachers for the 4 Subject Areas of Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies. Our curriculum is written to align with the state of Florida and Hillsborough County’s Common Core Curriculum. Our program meets and exceeds the county standards. Our focus on academic readiness skills is balanced by a strong values-based curriculum, an enrichment of music and the arts, active outdoor play and cooperative participation in the classroom and school community. This program is offered with these options: 5-Days; School Day or Extended Day.
