By the time your child enters the PK-2 classroom, s/he has started putting sentences together and seeking independence. As a result, our teachers create opportunities for conversations to help broaden your child’s comprehension and literacy skills, and provide various sensorial, fine motor, and gross motor experiences that encourage children to become self-sufficient. 


As children turn three, their verbal language becomes a powerful tool they use to express themselves. During this vital year, scribbles begin to appear more like symbols and evolve into letters. As this process continues, children may string several of these “written letters” together to form words. Our teachers continuously provide the children with the age-appropriate tools to foster this interest.


At the age of four, your child is constructing their knowledge of written language. They want to know what worenvironment ds in their say, and are able to recognize many letters. By the end of this year, many children understand that letters represent the sounds in spoken words and may associate some letters with their sounds. Most children also write some legible letters and know that writing goes from left-to-right and top to bottom.
