Pre-Kindergarten Daily Sample Schedule

We’ve designed the pre-k schedule, to include some typical elements of a kindergarten class schedule, with an understanding that your child isn’t quite in kindergarten yet and still needs more developmental play time. Our goal is to help your child develop at a pace right for them. We provide the environment where that can be achieved so they can enter kindergarten and elementary school with confidence.
