Redd School Pre-K & Kindergarten

Preschool Picture

The Beginning of a Journey

Pre-Kindergarten comprise the critical years in which young minds devour knowledge and learn to interact as part of a larger, formative community. In our close-knit classrooms, each student begins to master the skills that form a foundation for continuous learning. Our objective is to enable our students to become independent thinkers and problem solvers.

The Program

Empowering Independent Thinkers

Our Pre-K program establishes a level of comfort and mutual respect that allows each child to feel comfortable in their uniqueness and individuality. We teach our students how to problem solve, how to act politely in various social situations and how to be kind to their friends. We also encourage independent thinking, an essential part in each child's academic and interpersonal development.

As a Redd School Pre-K parent you will receive a monthly calendar, as well as a newsletter informing you of your child's activities and curriculum for the month. Because this is such a critical age for a child, our focus is to first love them and then equip them with the tools to be independent thinkers and have a love of knowledge.

The Classroom

Where Your Child’s Personality Shines

Since preschool age children are very impressionable, it is important that they have positive experiences and feelings about their ability to learn. These feelings will also impact their willingness to try new things. Our preschool curriculum integrates several different subject areas, in order to provide a powerful and balanced educational experience.

We promote independence by emphasizing self-help skills throughout the day, such as putting on their own coats and hats, washing hands, becoming potty-trained and much more. The teachers help the children achieve these goals in many ways, such as role modeling, shadowing and providing direct/indirect lessons.

    Mathematics

We rely on a hands-on approach to ensure that children have a firm grasp of basic mathematical concepts. Math is totally developmental and as soon as one concept is understood and easily practiced, the children move on to the next. At each juncture, as the concepts build upon one another, their learning becomes concrete. Children use interactive resources such as puzzles, pattern blocks and scales to learn about number recognition, number sequencing, patterning, matching, sorting and memory.

    Social Studies and Character Development

Preschool Social Studies is about people – the people in our family, classroom, community and how we all get along. Tolerance, compassion, empathy and sharing are a part of each character development theme. Even at this young age, we talk about making good choices and listening to our hearts when being pressured to make choices we know are wrong. Each unit is integrated a specific character traits in mind. We introduce and role model these traits as well as read books about them and discuss them in circle time. Students learn about the world we live in starting with their own home and neighborhood, their city, their state, and their nation. Students are exposed to many different cultures, and they are provided with books that demonstrate cultures, lifestyles and people from different countries.

    Science and Technology

The Redd School campus is made for science and it's a prime opportunity to nurture the innate curiosity of a preschool child. They are encouraged to question, explore and research. Hands-on experiences with animals, the gardens and the universe around us make for an exciting science experience. As part of our technology curriculum, students are also provided with basic computer classes.

    Health Education

Through outdoor play, physical movement and personal hygiene we learn about ourselves and how to live in a healthy manner. We emphasize the importance of remaining active and taking care of ourselves. This means eating healthy foods, having a blast running around and playing fun games. Your child is beginning to learn about the importance of nutrition and will learn to place value on a healthy lifestyle.

    Fine Arts

Making music, dressing up in the dramatic play area, and creating beautiful masterpieces in the art area are included in the preschool program. Creativity is encouraged and each child has the opportunity to learn and experiment with different mediums. Our emphasis is on the process of art, not on the final product. Art is enjoyed as an expression of each child, thus fostering self-esteem and individuality. Dramatic play and singing is a time where your child can express themselves and play in a world of make believe. Each year the Redd School Preschool has a parent program at Christmas time, and a Pre-Kindergarten graduation program.

    Language Arts & Spanish

Reading is the motivating factor in a Redd School Preschool education. Even at this young age children are building the foundation to read. We start with letter recognition and letter sounds, as children continue into Pre-Kindergarten we add in word families and sight words as we build up to the time when your child begins to read. A love for words in all forms is instilled in a variety of ways. Our students are introduced to Spanish with basic vocabulary and songs. It is a part of the daily circle time and they go to Spanish twice a week. Introducing children to a second language early in life gives them a greater chance at fluency as they grow.
