My Students

We have a diverse group of Pre-K students who are ready and excited for school! With your support, they can grow, learn, and spread their excitement for education into their future academic career. Pre-K is a special place for children to learn how to get along with others while building self-confidence and self-esteem. They learn how to socialize with others, manage disagreements, and build key communication skills needed in the future.

We are curious and active learners who love to make new discoveries by exploring our surroundings.

It's hard for a four-year-old to sit and listen to a lecture. That's why we learn through play!

Our classroom materials are essential to our learning process, offering us tools that support role-playing, creating, building, social-emotional skills, reading and writing skills, language skills, and math skills. Through play, the students make observations and discuss what they notice. Through our discussions, they draw conclusions that help them to make sense of the world and learn each day.

My Project

The block center is one of our favorite centers in Pre-K. With only a limited number of blocks it can be difficult to build what we want. Often times, the students run out of blocks and they can no longer continue with their design.

With more blocks in the block center, the students will have more resources and their building will be limitless!

Please help us unblock our block building potential with some additional blocks. The block center offers our students a place to problem solve, imagine and create, explore math and science concepts, develop social skills, build friendship, and self-esteem.
