Universal Pre-K

Teacher: Mrs. Carlie Burse
Teaching Assistant: Mrs. Shari Marianacci
Universal Pre-K is a program that encourages children to learn through playing, listening, exploring and creating. Children will be provided with a nurturing environment that encourages and supports risk-taking, problem-solving skills, and literacy development.

Students will be exposed to the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program which focuses on the growth of the whole child, including academic, physical, social and emotional development.

UPK Program Hours:

AM 8:52-11:32
PM 12:45-3:25

Parent Participation:

Parent participation is an important component of the UPK program. Parent participation is voluntary, yet strongly encouraged. Volunteer commitments will be on a monthly basis as we understand parent schedules can change. Volunteer participation will not begin until late October in order that the children can have the opportunity to learn to separate easily from their parent and become confident and comfortable with classroom routines.

Parent participation may include:

· Helping at snack time.

· Playing/working with children in a small group.

· Helping with a special project.
