“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children, play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.” – Fred Rogers
The Pre-kindergarten year is a joyful and active one in which children think, imagine, learn, play, and grow.
Our Pre-k classroom is a nurturing, child-centered environment that combines a balance of academics and social opportunities designed to meet the needs of each child. The classroom teachers guide students in hands-on, multi-sensory activities that engage their intellect, curiosity, and imagination. The goal of our Pre-K program is to foster a love of learning during each student’s first steps to a successful academic journey through our Lower School.
Development of the whole child is the primary focus of the MPH Pre-k curriculum. Activities and experiences are thematically based and focus on all aspects of the developing Pre-K child. Thematic units, community helpers, friendship, plants, and animals, all support experiential learning. The Pre-k curriculum includes daily lessons and activities in literacy, math, science, social studies, and community building.
