PreK at Peace of Mind is all about getting ready for the next big step - Kindergarten!
Our STEM-based curriculum for pre-K focuses on the essential skills young learners will need to be successful in Kindergarten. From socialization to science, technology, and math children coming from the Peace of Mind PreK class have the advantage over those who are in traditional preschool programs.
According to the Center for Public Education and the national Early Childhood Longitudinal Study—Kindergarten Cohort shows that students who attended a pre-K program scored higher on reading and math tests than children receiving parental care.1 Students who attended a child care center or other preschool program also showed gains, although former pre-K students exhibited the greatest achievement.
We are dedicated to providing the absolute best pre-K curriculum and experience available. We strive to meet each child’s physical, intellectual, social and emotional needs and to promote the development of each area.
