Ages 4 years - 5 years
Our Pre-K program focuses on improving cognitive skills and setting up students for Kindergarten success.
Preston Kiddie Kollege Pre-K students are constantly asked to recall information from past days, recognize letters/sounds, and many more activities that strengthen each student's mental growth. Our teachers encourage students to start doing daily tasks on their own and taking initiative during classroom activities.

Pre-K Program FAQs
Is there homework for Pre-K?
No formal homework is assigned in our Pre-K program, however, parents are informed on a monthly basis as to what skills and subjects can be practiced at home to be synchronous with learning at school.
What is the teacher-student ratio in Pre-K?
The maximum number of students with one teacher in our Pre-K program is fifteen students.
Does the Pre-K class go on field-trips?
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, our Pre-K program took one field trip each month to local destinations. As soon as it is completely safe to do so again, we plan to resume our Pre-K program monthly field trips.
Will there be formal evaluations so that I can know my child's learning progress?
Our Pre-Kindergarten teachers are trained to continuously monitor student progress, and report any concerns to PKK parents throughout the school year. We also formally evaluate milestones on a bi-annual basis and report results to our Pre-K parents in that manner, as well.
Does my child have to take a nap each day?
Nap time is a state-mandated part of our daily schedule. However, we understand that children at this age often have a difficult time falling asleep if they nap during the day, or nap too long during the day. If you indicate you are alright with your child quietly coloring and reading during nap time, we are able to allow them to do that instead of napping during nap time.
