Preschool PreK 3 and PreK 4
Developmentally appropriate teaching methods at work.
Riverside Presbyterian Day School’s safe and pristine campus is home to a developmentally sensitive preschool and Kindergarten called the Early Learning Center. This center offers early learning programs specializing in the ages and stages of 3 and 4 year olds, and continues through Kindergarten.
Current educational research tells us that social and emotional development is foundational to academic success. During the early years of 3 and 4 our preschool teachers intentionally incorporate a developmental approach to their teaching. The 3 and 4 year old children enjoy the arts, music and movement, an abundance of daily indoor and outdoor play, Spanish class and time for spiritual formation. The Early Year’s academic program fosters literacy development by strengthening the skills of listening, talking, pre-reading and pre-writing. Our preschool children learn mathematics, science and social studies through curricular themes filled with hands- on experiences and inquiry based learning which are aligned to their young social and emotional needs.
