The St. Michael’s ECC Board is excited to announce our new PreK Readiness Program/Classroom. This Program will replace our former PreK Child Care and PreK 3’s Programs by merging them together for the benefit of all of the children.
While many programs focus on the basics of letter and number recognition, PreK readiness encompasses more than a few isolated skills. We will be looking at the whole child and all the skills and strengths each child has developed. That’s what makes our new program unique. As an example, One child may love books and have exceptional puzzle abilities, but they struggle with shyness that prevents them from engaging with other children. Another child might be very strong socially but still has difficulty holding and using school supplies correctly. Others can do both these things, but can be very silly and wiggly and get distracted in group settings. Despite these differences, our PreK readiness program will help all of these children be ready for school.
This Program will take place Monday through Friday each week from 6am-6pm to allow for flexibility in scheduling for families, as well as to fully immerse all of our 3-5 year olds in play based learning to prepare them for PreK and beyond. The daily schedule will introduce a letter of the week, centers, crafts, Jesus time, and other supplemental activities.
Rest assured that your child will learn something everyday. Some days they will bring it home in their hands, other days they will bring it home in their heads, but everyday they will bring it home in their hearts.
