Pre-K / VPK

3 - 5 YEARS OLD
  • Class Overview

    We focus on preparing your child for kindergarten
  • Pre-K/VPK

    We base our instruction on Florida Standards for Four Year Olds and Creative Curriculum’s Teaching Strategies continuum of developmental benchmarks. Low student-to-teacher ratios, ongoing assessment and dedicated teachers provide learning opportunities to meet each child’s unique needs and interests. KCDC challenges each child to continue academic and whole-child growth necessary for Kindergarten success.

    • Safe, warm and nurturing environment for learning
    • Open communication between home and school
    • Multi-age classroom that allows younger children to learn from older children and older children to learn responsibility
