    Pre-Kindergarten Program

    The Pre-K curriculum provides a seamless transition for our four to five year old children who are moving from the Pre-Kindergarten program here at the Center to Kindergarten in another school. This Fall we are excited to be offering a full day Pre-K program using Scholastic BIG DAY for PRE-K, a comprehensive program that “embraces children’s natural curiosity and builds the foundation for success in school and life!”

    Staffed by a state certified lead teacher and one assistant, each classroom maintains a child: teacher ratio of 8:1. All lead teachers have Bachelor’s degrees in early education, two have Master’s Degrees in early education and one has her Master’s in Teaching Students with Disabilities.

    The full day Pre-Kindergarten program for 4-5 year olds is underwritten by the East Hampton and Wainscott School Districts and is offered free of charge to residents in those school districts, and to students from other districts for a fee, based on availability. We work closely with the East Hampton School District to ensure that our program prepares our students and families to have a smooth transition to Kindergarten.
    Program Components Based on NYS Pre-Kindergarten Foundation of Common Core Learning Standards:

    The Scholastic Big Day for Pre-K curriculm includes:
    • “Big Experiences” themes integrate all learning domains, including social-emotional, academic and physical development
    • Meaningful conversations that help children build oral language and vocabulary
    • Books! Books! Books! Books in all formats, print, e-book and audio books to ensure that every child
    has access to the very best literature and non-fiction, at school and at home.

    • English – Spanish Program – comprehensive with total equity for both English and Spanish children
