Our goal is to carefully design an early learning experience that uses a carefully planned curriculum designed to meet the developmental needs of the individual child.
Children are given opportunities to take part in large groups, small groups, and individual activities.
In the course of a day each child has opportunities for physical exercise, for music, art, dramatic play, sensorial experiences, language/stories, science/discovery, and fine/gross motor development.

The goal of Pre-Kindergarten is to prepare young children for success in school. Research has identified the key benchmarks that are accurate prediction of future achievement. Countinuously monitoring each child’s progress against these benchmarks is critical. The instructional model of Big Day for Pre-K is based on a reciprocal process with daily observation of the key indicators and daily responsive instruction for individual and small groups.
