Pre-K sets the tone for your child's development.

Ascent Preschool provides a well-rounded Pre-K curriculum that fosters whole-child growth and encourages children to communicate, collaborate, create, and think critically. Children in our Pre-K class engage in kindergarten readiness activities involving deeper learning and structured skill building.

Kindergarten readiness refers to more than just knowing the ABC’s. At Ascent, we believe that children must also gain skills, such as how to share information in a group, how to ask and answer questions, and how to solve problems and explore solutions. We take a holistic approach to early childhood education, addressing every aspect of a child’s development. The Ascent Pre-K classroom engages children intellectually, physically, emotionally, and socially and helps prepare children to meet the expectations that the kindergarten elementary school system has for school readiness.

We encourage children to learn through hands-on exploration guided by teachers who inspire curiosity and creative thinking. The result is well-rounded, confident children who possess the ability to solve problems, make decisions, and engage with others. Not only does our Prekindergarten program prepare children academically for later school success, but it offers opportunities to build social and emotional skills and self-esteem.

Getting Ready for a Lifetime of Learning

Your child will gain independence while getting ready for the transition to kindergarten with a more organized environment. Our passionate teachers will partner with you during this special time making their “senior year” of preschool the best it can be.

Your Prekindergarten’s Day

Your child will explore a variety of cultures, explore arithmetic through simple addition and subtraction and patterns, discover a deeper knowledge of language and its functions, art, sing and dance along with learning rhythms through music, along with lots of other academic studies.

Purposeful Play Is Early Education

Each day is packed with carefully designed activities structured around the six main development areas. Here are a few example activities:

  • Language and Literacy Development
  • Executive Function
  • Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical Development and Wellness
  • Cognitive Development
  • Creative Expression
