Butterflies (4 yrs – 5 yrs) Pre-Kindergarten

Building upon the foundation of preschool concepts, our Pre-Kindergarten program’s main focus is Kindergarten readiness. It is our goal to prepare your child socially and academically for the demanding years of Kindergarten and grade school they have ahead of them. It is amazing just how much the children can learn while enrolled in our structured Pre-K programs.

Phonics, writing, cutting, critical thinking, social interaction, and developing a child’s independence are just some of the topics taught throughout the year. Our Pre-K teachers develop fun and developmentally appropriate activities using the curriculum goals that AM2PM Childcare Learning Center has developed as well as the "Creative Curriculum for Preschool.”

The children are also taught the importance of taking pride in their accomplishments as well as a sense of self-importance. Developing good self-esteem in our students is very important to us. We want every child to enjoy and feel successful at school so that their enthusiasm for learning will carry on throughout their education.
