The main purpose of the program is to give young children a fun and meaningful introduction to a preschool environment, where they can learn to interact well with other children and adults. In the process children are being well prepared for Kindergarten and beyond. Manipulative and creative activities now focus more specifically on pre-reading, pre-writing, and pre-math skills, and children are encouraged to plan and share their activities of the day.
SCREENING AND ASSESSMENTS
Specialized services through Bragg Creek Education Services Association provides Mild/Moderate and PUF funding, and enhances the classroom with Speech-Language & Occupational Therapy. Each September, our team of specialists screen and assess young children ages 3-5 years to identify possible areas of focus in speech-language, fine or gross motor, and sensory development. Forms will be sent home to every family.
