While the foundation of our program is play-based, we also support preparing children for the academic skills they will need to enter Kindergarten. We follow the Morgan Hill Unified Kinder Preparedness Guide to help set our Pre-K academic curriculum and goals.

Fall 2020 Program

In order to provide an option for all of our families, our school has created the following program for our 3/4s and Pre-K classes.

Distance Learning- families will pick up curriculum bags on Sundays. 3/4s class will be given at home curriculum for 3 days a week, and Pre-K will be given at home curriculum for 4 days. Classes will meet 2 times a week via Zoom with their teacher and classmates. 

Hybrid Option- In addition to the Distance Learning option above, a group of 12 students will meet on campus 2 days a week. See each class above for days and times. 

On Campus Only- This is designed for families who want to focus more on the socialization, without the kinder readiness academic portion of our program. These students will only participate in the on campus class, and won't participate in the distance learning curriculum.
