Brookridge Day School also offers a pre-kindergarten program for children four, turning five. This program is highly academic focusing on reading readiness, writing, science, math and art. Through educational activities, your child will develop the skills needed to print words, write sentences and read. We do not limit ourselves to any one specific teaching approach, but instead, tailor the educational experience to each child. Our “Class Room of the Future” allows us to utilize technology to enrich our curriculum. Our focus remains on developing the whole child, not only academically, but emotionally and socially as well.
Lunch and snacks are included in the price of full time tuition.
Our part-time preschool meets from 8:45 to 11:45am. There are two separate classes: the three-year-olds meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays; and the four-year-olds meet Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. The Tuesday-Thursday class focuses on developing social skills by learning to play alone, side-by-side and in cooperative groups. Foundational skills in math, reading readiness and language are taught through developmental rotations. Our Monday-Wednesday-Friday program is more academic in nature. With an academic foundation laid in the three-year-old class, your child will further explore and deepen previously taught concepts. Our curricula broaden the scope in language, math, and reading readiness. Lots of opportunities are offered to further the child’s growth in self-esteem through interaction with classmates and teachers. Through our music program in both classes, your child will learn performance techniques and skills while learning to appreciate music and the arts.
