4 Year Old Preschool

Curriculum

At The Little Arrows Preschool Academy, our Pre-K students are ready to master their early learning skills in literacy, language, math, cognition, and science. Built upon Abeka, our curriculum defines broad descriptions of what children know and should be able to do by the time they enter Kindergarten. We recognize that variability in children is normal and our PreK class structure is designed to promote individuality in each student's growth, confidence, and Kindergarten readiness. A safe, loving and supportive learning environment for every child is our highest priority.

Abeka Preschool Curriculum Outline

Language Arts & Literacy

Children will use language to communicate ideas, feelings, and questions or to solve problems. Listening for different purposes and writing as a means of expression/communication are emphasized. Children are introduced to a variety of fiction and non-fiction children’s literature and begin to identify common sight words.

Mathematics

Children will be introduced to numbers and operations, geometry and spatial sense, patterns and relationships, and measurement. They will explore data as they collect, organize, and use new information.

Science

Physical science, Life science, Earth, and Space! Our Pre-K children will explore physical properties of objects and materials, investigate characteristics of living things, and solve problems involving earth and space. They experience nature and discover how plants grow through hands-on activities and observation of Today’s Children Garden.

Social & Emotional Development

At Today’s Children of Wildwood, we believe it is important to introduce children to a wide variety of character traits and nurture each child’s individual personality. Our goal is to help your child gain a greater knowledge of self and others through developing personal responsibility, building relationships of mutual trust and respect with others, and working cooperatively with children and adults.

Physical Development, Health & Safety

Outside and indoor play is an important time for children to explore their surroundings and purposefully practice coordination while using their gross motor skills. Our experienced teachers emphasize safe behaviors while playing.
