Children are presented with information in a meaningful context and continue to develop social skills using observations, interaction, problem solving, and peer and teacher modeling.  Teachers create content using our in-house curriculum and the Think Orange through weekly thematic units. In addition Pre-K children work through the Handwriting Without Tears Kindergarten readiness curriculum in order to foster emergent reader skills.

Children in this age group must be fully toilet trained before entering into a Pre-K 4 classroom during any point in the year.

* The Children's Place adheres to the September 1 cutoff date for age level assignment in accordance with the area school requirements for entering Kindergarten.  The school will consider requests to place a child in the age level below a child's birth year when a child requires additional time to develop in a specific developmental domain. i.e. social, speech, motor skills, etc.  However, the school will not accommodate requests to place a child in the age level above a child's birth year.
