Pre-K Program in Las Vegas
A Foundation for Success
At Creative Kids, Pre-K is a vital part of the journey to success in kindergarten. Through a combination of independent and group work, we guarantee that children make developmental leaps and bounds, learn to communicate effectively, and become better collaborators. Our Pre-K program explores:
- Responsive listening
- Using language to learn
- Social and collaborative skills
Children have the opportunity to develop skills across a variety of disciplines in our eight dynamic learning centers.
- Music & Movement Center: Children strengthen physical coordination abilities by moving, dancing, and singing in cooperation and communication with their classmates.
- Math Center: By organizing, counting, comparing, and sorting numbers, children explore new ideas and foundational early math concepts.
- Art Center: This creative center gives children an environment that encourages discoveries like new art techniques and concepts of color.
- Dramatic Play Center: Emotional expression is demonstrated in this area, where children use their imaginations to make sense of the world in a way that enhances early writing and reading abilities.
- Block Center: By exploring different materials, children fine-tune their hand-eye coordination as they sort, count, and pattern items.
- Science Center: Children enhance their classification, analytic, prediction, and experimentation skills as they learn about animal and plant life cycles and other physical and earth science concepts.
- Writing Center: Letter and word recognition and formation, along with segmenting words into sounds, and putting new sounds together to make words, allow children to succeed at written communication.
- Reading Center: Children continue to build literacy skills here while they sharpen their print awareness, story comprehension, and listening abilities.
Our Young Achievers™ curriculum relies on the foundational principle of active learning, because it’s inspired by the HighScope philosophy. We ensure that students have hands-on experiences with new ideas and materials, all of which are guided by our comprehensive Plan-Do-Review process. Our digital lesson planning tool creates individualized curriculum, based on teachers’ observation and assessment of children, so that they can achieve and exceed milestones across 10 developmental scales.
