Pre-K (4/5-year-olds)

There are many factors that contribute to making the Pre-K program at the Learning Academy of East Roswell a high quality, in-demand learning experience. Many families enroll their children in our school when they are very young just so they have a spot in our Pre-K program when they are old enough.  This program offers a strong academic foundation for children as they transition from preschool into kindergarten and introduces children to many new topics and developmental skills.

Our teachers follow the Georgia Early Learning and Development Standards (GELDS) as the guide for classroom instruction. We are passionate about developing every facet of your child and utilize lesson plans that address all areas of development: cognitive, social, emotional, physical approaches to play, communication, language, and literacy. Due to our strong focus on pre-reading and early literacy skills, our children are able to recognize letter sounds, combine those sounds into simple word families, and eventually read basic word family books. Our goal is to have developmentally ready Pre-K children reading before they enter Kindergarten. Watching our children proudly demonstrate this skill to their family is one of our greatest joys!

Our Pre-K classrooms come equipped with science materials that allow children to explore the world around them through caring for plants and animals in the classroom. We also incorporate a light table into our science lessons to give children the opportunity to view x-rays of people and animals, slices of rocks and minerals, and explore 3-dimensional building materials with illumination from below. Classes also plant and maintain a garden on the playground so that they can practice charting growth and making scientific observations and predictions as they care for the plants.

We are firm believers that open and transparent parent-teacher relationships are essential in promoting the overall welfare and development of a child. We hold parent conferences twice a year to give parents and teachers the chance to discuss a child’s portfolio of learning. This provides the opportunity for parents and teachers to partner together in the child’s developmental process. Pre-K classes also like to go on a field trip to visit a local farm where they pet animals, go on a hayride, and complete an art project.

Each of our Pre-K classrooms come equipped with large interactive whiteboards that are used for group activities as well as to display relevant videos or information that would enhance the curriculum. Our teachers love using these boards as an engaging tool to encourage learning, critical thinking, and the development of basic life skills. These boards are also used in individual and small group activities for word combining, patterning, and math exercises.

Our 3 large classrooms each come equipped with learning stations that encourage children to learn through exploration. These learning centers include Language Arts, Math, Writing, Science, Manipulatives, Reading, Blocks, Dramatic Play, Art, Sensory Table, and more! Items in each center are frequently updated to match the theme and maintain a high level of curiosity and interest within the children. We also provide a spacious outdoor playground that is specifically designed for Pre-K children. The playground includes bicycles, paths, a basketball goal, large climbing/exploring structure, swings, and a free play area covered in astroturf. The children have plenty of space to run, play, and create their own games.

As a part of your child’s Pre-K morning and after-school experience, we provide enrichment classes with special teachers who will expose your child to excellent instruction in Music, Mandarin Chinese, Art and Fitness. All Pre-K children are welcome to join the after-school program.

At East Roswell Preschool, we consistently go above and beyond what is dictated by Georgia’s state Pre-K requirements. Your child will enter Kindergarten ahead of many classmates due to the wonderful educational experience of participating in our Pre-K Program.  A productive Pre-K year is essential to laying a solid groundwork for a child’s future education which is why choosing an elite learning academy like ours is a choice that will set up your child for future success.
