Pre-K vs Preschool
There is no difference, really. Pre-K is short for pre-kindergarten. All Pre-K programs ARE a form of preschool and one is not “better” than the other. Pre-K is just more narrowly targeted. Pre-K serves 4 and 5 year-olds preparing to enter kindergarten the following year. The focus is school readiness and the program standards are more academic in nature.
Purposeful Pre-K Programs: Learning Through Play!
Getting your child prepared for school is as simple as helping them learn by playing! A life of fun and learning is our Pre-K goal. Your children deserve the best education available. At Apple Tree Orchard, our Pre-K helps prepare them for the new challenges they will face when they enroll in school. Our pre-k is specifically designed for children under five years old. We use play to help your child develop her or his independence and prepare for the important move to kindergarten. All this happens in a fun, safe and organized environment.
We implement preschool age-appropriate educational games into our curriculum to help set the tone for your child’s experience with learning. Preschool curriculum involves lots of colors, shapes, letters, and numbers, but it can also teach social skills like sharing and listening. Not only do preschool games prepare children for grade school, but they also create a fun learning environment for your child to grow in!
Our passionate and engaging staff love kids and love watching them learn and guiding them to the best opportunities for it. We partner with you during these special Pre-K years to get to know your child and make it the most fun possible, for you and them. Rest assured that our Pre-K students receive the care they deserve.
