Pre-K Counts is a preschool program for 3 and 4 year old children. Pre-K Counts is free for families that qualify, based on income and other factors.
SUMMIT Pre-K Counts teachers and family support staff will work with you to give your child a great start!
Each of our teachers develops a daily schedule and includes:
- Small group time where the teacher works a few children on an activity related to the learning topic, or on social/emotional development.
- Work time, where a larger group of children use all areas in the classroom to explore, play, socialize, and learn.
- Circle/Meeting time when children sing songs, read stories, and have discussions.
- Outside time for running and jumping and also for planned activities and games.
- Routines – depending on the age of the child, routine times such as bathrooming or hand washing are part of the daily schedule.
- Meal times are used to help children develop self help skills, encourage socialization and discuss healthy practices.
- Learning through play! Play has been proven to be the most effective way for children to learn. A child’s play is exciting, self motivating, freely chosen, and fun.
- Making friends! Social-emotional development and nurturing relationships with caring teachers.
- Age-appropriate experiences developed by teachers from ongoing observation and assessment of each child’s development.
