The pre-K room at Lakewood Child Care Center is a blend of older 4-year-olds and 5-year-olds who are usually moving to kindergarten the next fall.

In addition to building on the play-based curriculum of the preschool room, the pre-K classroom has readiness opportunities in literacy, math, science, social studies, health and safety, art, and music. Our classrooms use self-directed time in the day to allow children to choose their own activities to explore.

Among the readiness activities, our pre-K classroom works on alphabet and number recognition and awareness; phone number, address, and birthdate memorization; writing, visual and auditory skills; as well as concepts and word usage, such as opposite and rhyming words.

The teachers design the curriculum to spark the children’s recognition of their own achievements and promote their developing attitudes as “learners” using their curiosity, creativity, and initiative.
