    Pre-School

     

    Early Pre-K

    The Early Pre-K Program at Young Leaders Campuses is designed for children ages 18-23 months old.

    The philosophy of the Early Pre-K Program of Young Leaders Campus Network is to provide our young toddlers with a mix of stimulating toys and activities that spark their curiosity and encourage exploration.
    • Research has proven that children who experience language rich environments are more academically successful. Teachers at Young Leaders Campuses create language-rich environments through songs, conversation, and creative movement.
    • The activities and experiences that toddlers have in this program lay the groundwork for learning and academic success in future years. This sets Young Leaders programs apart from other child care or daycare programs.
    • The Early Pre-K Program engages each of the child’s senses. Teachers integrate instrumental and vocal music, cooking and sensory explorations of art and science into the routine and encourage toddlers to learn and explore through each of their senses.
    • It’s never too early to lay the foundations for early math and language arts. Teachers incorporate carefully selected toys, books, games and other materials to jumpstart each child’s mathematical and linguistic thinking.
    • Young Leaders Campuses are social places. Often, your child’s experiences here will be the first experiences with peers and care givers who are not parents. New routines and friends may be intimidating during the early weeks, but our highly trained and nurturing teachers guide young toddlers through these experiences with ease.

     

    Pre-K 2

    The Pre-K 2 Program at Young Leaders Campuses is designed for children ages 24 to 35 months old.

    The Pre-K 2 Program at Young Leaders Campuses exposes children to various concepts before young children know the words to describe their discoveries. Multi-sensory learning materials are introduced through a variety of engaging activities. Children in the program build upon previous experiences while incorporating a multitude of new skills.
    • Math and science are introduced through direct experience with nature and other scientific concepts. Children have endless opportunities to explore science tools and concepts in a hands-on way. Teachers learn about each child’s interests through careful observation and conversation.
    • The music curriculum provides extensive opportunities for children to sing and move together. Children explore music from cultures around the world.
    • Using our art lab, we will create unique art projects and encourage exploration by using various art materials. Creating different art projects will teach both the expressive and technical aspects of art while allowing children to make choices about what and how they will draw or paint.
    • Manipulatives and dramatic play centers will provide your child with social skills and help to continue developing fine motor skills. Dramatic play permits children to fit the reality of the world into their own interests and knowledge, while manipulatives teach mathematical concept.

     

    Pre-K 3

    The Pre-K 3 Program at Young Leaders Campus is designed for children who have turned 3 by August 1st.

    The program includes the introduction of new curricula and experiences.
    • The Pre-K 3 program includes the introduction of phonics. Phonological awareness activities, which have proven to be the most effective method of pre-reading instruction, are included in the child’s daily experience.
    • Science activities move from simple sensory experiences and explorations to helping children gain understanding of specific scientific tools and concepts. Through individual projects and classroom-wide themes, the child’s interests become the starting point for scientific investigations.
    • Math concepts are taught in more concrete ways through books, stories, songs and finger plays. Children begin to learn the concept of one-to-one correspondence as they distribute napkins to their classmates at lunch and refine spatial awareness understandings through building activities and puzzles. Math concepts will be taught through daily experiences with manipulatives and work stations.
    • Children in the Pre-K 3 spend time in the Apple® Computer Lab, the Art & Science Labs, the Music Lab, our state-of-the art gymnasium and out on our playground specifically designed for pre-school age children.
    • Manipulatives and dramatic play centers will provide your child with social skills and help to continue developing fine motor skills.
    • Play continues to be one of the vehicles for learning, and as children engage in imaginative play, block play, and outdoor play, they build the understanding of concepts that will support academic learning in elementary through high school.
    • The child’s expressive vocabulary grows as children are invited to share their stories in regular circle time activities.
    • Creating different art projects will teach both the expressive and technical aspects of art while allowing children to make choices about what and how they will draw or paint.

     

    What Three Year Olds Need

    Freedom – Three year olds want to know what there is to do, and what there is to do it with. Manipulatives, props, art materials, blocks, sand and water are their raw materials for play. Well-defined spaces to explore independently are keys to their learning.
    See Research for more information about what three year olds need.

     

    Pre-K 4

    The Pre-K 4 Program at Young Leaders Campuses is designed for children who are 4 years old by August 1st.

    The goal of the Pre-K 4 Program at Young Leaders Campus is to provide a balance of academically-focused activities and opportunities for unstructured play and creative expression.
    • Skilled teachers lead daily teacher-facilitated activities while also giving ample time for imaginative play, social interactions and student-initiated learning.
    • Children are exposed to math concepts through a concrete, hands-on but playful way. With this approach, children build a strong foundation for later math learning in elementary school and beyond.
    • Children are encouraged to think critically and solve problems. The Young Leaders science curriculum invites children to explore their own interests. Children do not simply learn science facts, but develop science process skills that stick with them through elementary, middle and high school science classes.
    • Children in the Pre-K 4 Program build upon and refine gross and fine motor skills through various physical activities. In our state-of-the-art gymnasium and outdoor areas, children have daily opportunities to exert energy through physical activity that is self-directed, with groups of peers and/or facilitated by teachers.
    • Activities are built into the curriculum to strengthen small motor skills for successful writing.

     

    What Four Year Olds Need

    Freedom – Three year olds want to know what there is to do, and what there is to do it with. Manipulatives, props, art materials, blocks, sand and water are their raw materials for play. Well-defined spaces to explore independently are keys to their learning.
