Our Pre-K Childcare Program

Thoughtfully designed to prepare your child for success in Kindergarten and beyond

Available to children Ages 4 -5

There are many factors that contribute to making the Pre-K program at the Learning Academy of East Roswell a high quality, in-demand learning experience. Many families enroll their children in our school when they are very young just so they have a spot in our Pre-K program when they are old enough.  This program offers a strong academic foundation for children as they transition from preschool into kindergarten and introduces children to many new topics and developmental skills.

What we Provide Our Active Learners

  • Academic Introductions — These are group learning sessions where students will be introduced to the subject matter they are learning that day
  • Independent Exercises — As your child is growing older, they will begin to explore the world around them independently. We provide plenty of opportunities for the children in our program to explore subjects, concepts, and ideas on their own to further develop their independent thinking skills
  • Large and Small Group Activities — Along with independent learning, we encourage the children in our programs to work together. We have created small and large group stations where children will learn to cooperate with each other to solve problems and investigate new ideas and materials. Our small group stations focus on close engagement with peers while our large group activities focus on a community approach to learning
  • Realistic Application — In each educational experience, children will learn to apply thought, imagination and creativity to real life situations and problems
  • Center Opportunities:
    1. Language and Literacy Center helps children build their language skills
    2. Art Center presents free-choice art experiences that develop skills and imagination
    3. Construction Center develops spatial awareness through stacking, sorting, building, and recreating

Key Features of Our Pre-K Childcare Program

At East Roswell Preschool, we consistently go above and beyond what is dictated by Georgia’s state Pre-K requirements. Your child will enter Kindergarten ahead of many classmates due to the wonderful educational experience of participating in our Pre-K Program.  A productive Pre-K year is essential to laying a solid groundwork for a child’s future education which is why choosing an elite learning academy like ours is a choice that will set up your child for future success.

Our 3 large classrooms each come equipped with learning stations that encourage children to learn through exploration. These learning centers include Language Arts, Math, Writing, Science, Manipulatives, Reading, Blocks, Dramatic Play, Art, Sensory Table, and more! Items in each center are frequently updated to match the theme and maintain a high level of curiosity and interest within the children. We also provide a spacious outdoor playground that is specifically designed for Pre-K children. The playground includes bicycles, paths, a basketball goal, large climbing/exploring structure, swings, and a free play area covered in astroturf. The children have plenty of space to run, play, and create their own games.

Daily Activities in our Pre K Childcare Program

Each of our Pre-K classrooms come equipped with large interactive whiteboards that are used for group activities as well as to display relevant videos or information that would enhance the curriculum. Our teachers love using these boards as an engaging tool to encourage learning, critical thinking, and the development of basic life skills. These boards are also used in individual and small group activities for word combining, patterning, and math exercises.

Our Pre-K classrooms also come equipped with science materials that allow children to explore the world around them through caring for plants and animals in the classroom. We also incorporate a light table into our science lessons to give children the opportunity to view x-rays of people and animals, slices of rocks and minerals, and explore 3-dimensional building materials with illumination from below. Classes also plant and maintain a garden on the playground so that they can practice charting growth and making scientific observations and predictions as they care for the plants.
