PRE-KINDERGARTEN (4-5 Years)

B.E.E. Your Best in Pre-Kindergarten℠

pre-kindergarten-1When children reach the pre-kindergarten classrooms, they begin to develop their school readiness skills – building independent work habits, functioning and working constructively in a group setting using appropriate social skills, demonstrating correct pencil grip and beginning to develop phonetic discrimination skills.  B.E.E. Your Best in Pre-Kindergarten℠ continues to incorporate history and geography, music and art, as well as autonomy and social skills through Core Knowledge®.  To prepare for kindergarten, the specially trained pre-kindergarten teachers build an educational foundation by teaching core skill areas through the addition of nationally-recognized programs, Everyday Mathematics® and Handwriting Without Tears®.
