This is an all-important developmental year for the emerging learner. In Pre-K, your child will gain the final skills to be prepared for kindergarten. Our Pre-K program includes foundational literacy and math skills derived from the Common Core State Standards.

Some of the skills Pre-K children will learn include letter-sound relationships, how to sound out unfamiliar words, and how to read and recognize sight words. They will learn math concepts such as greater than, less than and equal to, and their number sense will grow.

In Pre-K, your child will learn to make predictions based on prior knowledge, delve into traditions of other cultures, and will learn to write all uppercase and lowercase letters.

The Links to Learning Pre-K program includes San Diego State University's SPARK Physical Fitness/Wellness program and a Spanish program.


Language and Literacy

Your child will build confidence with letter-sound relationships and will begin sounding out blends and recognizing sight words. While reading stories, your child will be asked to use critical thinking skills to make predictions.


Your child will develop fine and gross motor skills by taking part in age-appropriate hand-eye coordination activities and will learn to write uppercase and lowercase letters. Continuing to work in SPARK, your child will participate in physical activities that require more body control.


Through small group, whole group and individual instruction, your child will explore addition and subtraction, complex sequencing, patterns, and graphs. Your child will be encouraged to explain how he or she solves a problem.


Teachers will encourage your child to experiment with sounds and tempo using simple instruments and clapping patterns, and by experiencing music from various cultures.

The World and Me

Your child is continuing to mature, and becoming aware of actions and consequences. Teachers will encourage your child to verbally express feelings and behaviors and to act appropriately.


Taking art skills to the next level, your child will participate in activities that ask for complex pictures with detailed representation and the creation of designs using various media such as peg boards, paint, clay and 3D models.


With a solid foundation built in the last two years, our curriculum emphasizes an active use of the Spanish language. At this level, your child will be exposed to stories and activities.

My Community & Environment

By linking your child to the community and environment, teachers will introduce symbols and people connected to certain holidays and traditions of various cultures. Your child will also discuss the role of animals, plants and insects in our world and begin the study of maps and globes.
