For years, younger siblings have been watching their older siblings exit the car each week during the school year. Parents, you have repeatedly expressed the desires of younger children to participate in the program, and now, under the same mission statement with hopes to foster the love of learning, children ages 3-young 5 will have the opportunity! This will be offered on Tuesdays at Cedar Park West.
Pre-K students at TREA will have their own special schedule for the day. They will stay in the same classroom (no rotation) with the same teacher and teacher’s aide. The pre-K group will have their own designated lunch, recess, and rest time, even a separate playground. They will have a separate Christ-centered pre-K curriculum focusing on pre-emergent reading and writing, along with educational “centers” and progressive monthly lessons with number and letter themes and even Spanish. Of course, we will praise our Savior and learn bible verses too!
Each month will focus on a group of letters and numbers, and we will progress through the alphabet and to #10. Mrs. Rodriguez will incorporate Spanish words and their pronunciations as well. Pre-k kiddos will have their very own curriculum, classroom, 2 teachers (to include a teacher’s aide) and even their own lunch time and playground. Cost is $150 per month and kiddos need to be potty trained.
