Alphabet Kids 

 Philosophy Statements for Pre-K

It is the philosophy of the Alphabet Kids Pre-K Program that children be encouraged to learn and grow by providing a foundation of developmentally appropriate experiences where all children can succeed in a safe and nurturing environment.
We believe that each child is a unique individual and that all children can learn. Our preschool programs provide inclusive settings that recognize children's varied abilities, interests, needs, and learning styles. 

We believe children learn best through meaningful play. Our play-based, child centered program reflects the integration of physical, cognitive, social, emotional, language, self help and aesthetic areas for the total development of the child. Meaningful play encourages curiosity, discovery and problem solving which allows individual growth and development of a positive self-image.
We recognize that parents are the child's first teachers. Children learn best when parents are involved in their educational program. The primary bridge between home and school is the involvement of family and community.

The goal of the staff is to build an adequate foundation for the child's public school years. The program we pursue is geared toward helping children develop habits of observation, questioning and listening. We want to ease the transition from home to school - helping them to learn how to get along with other children and adults, to develop skills through active games and spurring emotional growth through group
It is our goal at Alphabet Kids to prepare your child for Kindergarten whether they will attend a private or public school in any community. At the beginning of the Pre-K year, your child should have some basic skills in the areas of math, reading-readiness, social/emotional development, and practical skills. Strong work habits, listening skills, and appropriate behaviors are necessary for your child to smoothly transition into Kindergarten.

The following is a list of skills that your child should acquire while in Pre-K
  • Separate easily from parents
  • Self-help skills (clean up after play, dress oneself, independent bathroom skills)
  • Play independently and stay focused with a friend for 15 minutes
  • Follow basic classroom rules, structure, and directions
  • Recognize some letters, numbers, and sight words
  • Write some letters, numbers, and shapes
  • Recite rhyming words and opposite words
  • Listen to a story and repeat back some major points
