    Junior Pre-Kindergarten Program

    Our Junior Pre-Kindergarten program for three to four year olds uses a modified version of the Scholastic Big Day for Pre K curriculum to enhance the Junior Pre K experience. The curriculum is comprised of 8 fun themes such as, Awesome Animals, Nature All Around Us and Growing Up Healthy.

    We encourage and foster each child’s social and emotional development by:
    – Encouraging cooperative work and play
    – Encouraging children to be responsible and caring of others
    – Being considerate and aware of indivdiual differences and temperments
    – Helping children cope with separation and transitions
    – Providing opportunities for independence and self-reliance
    – Recognizing efforts rather than individual accomplishments

    Transitioning from our Junior Pre K Program to Pre Kindergarten is a sensitive time for both children and families. At EWECC, three-year olds have an opportunity to participate with the Pre Kindergarten children and staff in weekly All-School meetings. This “together–time” enables our three-year olds to become familiar with the Pre Kindergarten teachers. The staff will continue to communicate regarding children and their needs throughout the year. Conversations with a child’s former Junior Pre K Teacher are a tremendous benefit, enabling Pre K teachers to better know their new students.

    The child: teacher ratio in the Junior Pre-Kindergarten program is maintained at 7:1.  The lead teachers in the two 3-year-old classrooms have Bachelor’s Degrees in Early Childhood Education and are assisted by two to three staff members with education and/or work experience focused on early childhood.

    Research consistently reflects the importance in finding opportunities to engage children’s primary caregivers in their early education and to create opportunities for clear communication between families and schools. Daily communication is done at drop off and/or pick up as well as at Parent Teacher Conferences twice a year to update parents on the child’s progress and to work with the parents on any issues of concern.
