Pre-Kindergarten

Children must be going into Kindergarten in the fall of 2018, which means they must be 4 by August 1, 2017. Handwriting Without Tears is the handwriting curriculum used by Greenfield Central Schools. The preschool edition is used in our classrooms to introduce our students to printing the alphabet, identifying letters and forming them with hands on activities. Zoo-phonics is a program to teach children the sounds and shapes of the alphabet. We follow the Count on Math curriculum to teach math skills in the order recommended by many math experts. Teachers work on kindergarten readiness skills with small groups while the rest of the class enjoys free play, learning social skills and cooperative play and developing their creativity. Children are encouraged to learn the skills that will allow them to become more independent.

Morning Prekindergarten Class

This three hour class period covers the prekindergarten curriculum in a shorter, more economical day. Class size is limited to 16 and with 2 adults. Monday/Wednesday/Friday from 9:00-12:00.

Extended Prekindergarten Class

This class is designed to give the students plenty of hands on learning in a four hours school day that is closer to the full day they will attend in Kindergarten. The prekindergarten curriculum is taught with time to introduce skills in different ways or try out new concepts. The biggest advantage of this extra time is teachers are there to help students master independently eating lunch they bring from home.

An ever increasing percentage of our parents are choosing this option and the children love it! It is a great bridge to all day kindergarten. This class is limited to 16 students with 2 adult. This class meets Monday/Wednesday/Friday from 9:00-1:00.
