WELCOME TO PRE-K
Welcome to Mrs. Reilly's Pre-K Class where our motto is "We work and play and make good friends along the way". This year the Pre-K children will grow as students and little citizens as they enhance their cognitive, social-emotional, physical, and language skills in a supportive environment.
Our developmentally appropriate program is geared toward young children and how they learn best. Our Curiosity Corner curriculum allows many opportunities for children to build pre-reading, pre-math, social, and other learning skills through play, songs, stories, learning labs, special projects, and both large and small group instruction. We aim to prepare the children for kindergarten and beyond by giving them the tools they need to be independent learners.
Our children participate in all Robert L. Craig School has to offer. Circle time, learning centers (Learning Labs), small group instruction, and large group activities within the classroom help our children to master important academic skills as outlined by the New Jersey Preschool Teaching and Learning Expectations. Each week the children attend music, art, and gym classes to further their learning. Special activities during our 38 child-friendly weekly themes help bring learning to life and teach our young children about the world around them.
Our program is linked closely to learning at home and we encourage family involvement. Frequently at-home activities will be posted to help children to continue learning outside the walls of the classroom. Children are also invited to participate in our class at-home reading program, "100 Books Before Kindergarten" which helps to not only build literacy skills, but also to encourage time together as a family.
Be sure to check back each week for our weekly "Here's the Scoop" newsletter, special announcements, and for at-home activity ideas. We look forward to a very successful Pre-K year!
