Pre-School (Half Day)
PM session: 12:45 pm- 3:45 pm (only Sitka location)
Our half day pre-school program offers both morning and afternoon classes and runs five days a week to create the consistency that is so important to young children. When children first begin school they will have the benefit of learning from older and more experienced children, enriching their experiences not only academically but also socially.
The 3 hour cycle allows children to fully immerse themselves in an activity without interruption, facilitates the development of coordination, concentration, independence and a sense of order. As we strive to provide a caring and nurturing environment for each child, we require that children must be toilet trained and turn three by August 31st of the year of enrolment to to attend this program.
The three year old child spends much time in the Practical Life area developing self helps skills, fine motor abilities and a sense of order in order to cultivate independence, focus and confidence in his or her own abilities. The Sensorial area is also introduced to refine his or her senses in preparation for later scientific study. The primary goal of our preschool program is to encourage the children to learn at their individual pace.
