Children in the pre-kindergarten years learn best through hands-on play and fun experiences with language. Through the reading of stories, singing of songs, and exposure to environmental print, children learn the association between letters and words. They learn to recognize letters, to know their names and the sounds they make. PreK math activities include learning numbers, practicing counting, creating and learning shapes, and working with calendars.
Kindergarten carries on where preschool left off. It still includes lots of fun, hands-on play, the reading of stories, singing of songs, and exposure to environmental print. Children develop a stronger knowledge of the association between letters, sounds, and words. In mathematics K activities include developing a strong number sense. In K there are also reading, writing, and math lessons designed to develop the basic academic skills that are key to success in the elementary grades
