Early Care & Learning Centers

Preschool & Pre-K

Preschool & Pre-K:

Preschool (3years-4 years): Pre-school is where early learning takes a turn into a more structured learning environment.  Each activity is carefully planned to include hands-on, open-ended activities and meaningful experiences.  Activities are geared for fun and are enriched with opportunities to learn about colors, numbers, shapes and letters.  Teachers support preschoolers in reaching age appropriate milestones by creating an inclusive environment that promotes learning through play and promotes self-confidence through safe risk taking opportunities!

Pre-Kindergarten (4 years-5 years):  Pre-Kindergarten builds on all of the skills gained in preschool as we prepare to enter Kindergarten!  Through out Pre-K children will gradually become accustom to the classroom structure that they will experience once they enter school.  Teachers create experiences in which children use music, art and other forms of expression as well as pre-math, pre-science, pre-reading, fine and large motor skills and cultural awareness.  By the end of the school, your Pre-K child will have gained the security and confidence needed to enter into Kindergarten!

Each of our education programs is a registered part of the New York State Education Department.  Pride & Joy’s curriculum, based on the” Core Body of Knowledge”, is a balanced enriching program that ensure that each participant will be ready to begin their career as a student, and to develop a life long love of learning!
