Pre-K For All


Our preschool program has mastered the perfect blend of learning and play. We recognize the importance of play as it allows children to explore, negotiate, develop relationships and ultimately learn. We promote constructive learning through inquiry and exploration. Throughout the day, we provide literacy-rich experiences to promote children's literacy learning. Children receive a balanced literacy program, which includes oral language development activities, Interactive Read Alouds, Shared Reading, Interactive Writing, Shared Writing and lots of singing! We equally support our children’s numeracy learning through the use of math in everyday situations throughout the day. They learn about shapes through the use of math manipulatives, tally their favorite ice cream flavor, and create graphs to identify the class' favorite

Teachers bring Social and Cultural Studies to life by taking children on excursions to explore their neighborhood, visit museums and libraries, On and Off Broadway plays and much more. Science comes to life through interactive projects where students form and test hypotheses. One such exciting project is “Can We Melt Elsa’s Hand,?” which goes along with the popular children’s movie Frozen. These interactive learning exercises coupled with music, dance and singing make CECC children excited about coming to school everyday.
