Albuquerque Pre-K: Ages 4 to 5
Kindergarten is an exciting step for children and parents alike. At ABC Preschool and Childcare, much of what we have done in previous years has all been leading up to it. But it is during our Pre-K, for children ages 4-5, that it becomes even more important. In this year, children will focus on:
- Kindergarten Prep — letters, words, numbers, early science and math concepts
- Imaginative Development — arts and crafts, dramatic play, storytelling
- Physical Development — indoor and outdoor play, game
- Social Development — large- and small-group activities, sharing, cooperation, and helping others
The Curriculum at ABC Preschool was designed by early education specialists and follows the guidelines for developmentally appropriate practice set forth by national accrediting associations. This program helps children develop the critical thinking and problem-solving skills they’ll need to succeed in kindergarten, school and life.
Teachers plan lessons to deepen understanding of basic academic concepts through exploration, investigation and play. While we increase the focus on math, science, language and social studies, we’ll make sure it’s presented with a big dose of fun. We provide classrooms where children can challenge themselves and enjoy the thrill of discovery as they look forward to school. In fact, a study showed that children in our program made substantial gains in development and had the necessary skills to enter and excel in kindergarten.
