Research tells us that early childhood education programs play a critical role in building literacy, math, language, and social skills in children. Sage’s Pre-K is specifically designed for bright young children who might be in need of a more advanced and enriching school program. The Pre-K experience offers challenges that gifted preschool children rarely find in programs among same-age peers. The content is sensitive to students’ interests and is presented in depth. Our youngest students become experts on topics like the Ice Age and how water facilitates life, while math, literacy, and social/emotional skills are interwoven in the lessons.
Pre-K is a play-based, imaginative, and nurturing program. Our bright students are able to move from concrete ideas into the world of abstract concepts. We teach them to imagine, create, and perform. They think critically about the world around them and are encouraged to pursue creative interests. It is most helpful to think of this program as one that delivers both a preschool and kindergarten curriculum.
We provide the option of a full or half-day program, both of which are packed full of extraordinary learning opportunities. The schedule below provides only a brief peek into the activities in which the children engage. We encourage you to visit Sage to experience for yourself the joy of learning found in this unique preschool program.
Admission to Pre-Kindergarten requires an application and screening visit. No cognitive testing is necessary unless a family would like to assess eligibility for the K-8 program.
Is this the right Pre-K program for your child? It is if your child:
