Pre -K Curriculum

At A Step Ahead Primary School our classrooms are divided into: Under the Sea, In the Jungle, and Up Up and Away. Our curriculum is divided into four distinct areas:

  1. Whole group activities including music, dance, read alouds, guided writing, dramatic play, and games.
  2. Small group activities that include gently structured preschool, pre-kindergarten and kindergarten enrichment classes including shared reading, interactive writing, as well as learning centers, and creative time.
  3. One-on-One instruction with students to enhance or re-teach concepts that were introduced to children such as guided reading and writing.
  4. Free choice playgroups where children can choose their own activities both in our inside and outside classrooms.

A Step Ahead Primary School offers pre-kindergarten and kindergarten enrichment classes to our students in the a.m. and p.m. Children are placed by age AND developmental readiness.

Our Curriculum is based on sound principles of early childhood education. We focus on the process rather than the product. If our concept was ducks and a child created a horse we appreciate and accept individuality and creativity.

Each week a new "theme"? is explored through science, math, language, music, art, and movement. All staff will model manners and problem solving. Lesson plans are prepared weekly but may be changed due to the interest of the students; we always take the opportunity and look forward to a "teaching moment"?. Lesson plans are available and visible to parents at all times.
