Decatur County Pre-K Program

Philosophy 

The Decatur County Pre-k Program provides an educational program that integrates hands-on learning and activities into the curriculum.  Our classrooms will offer a variety of activities to promote the develop language, literacy, writing and math skills, physical and social emotional skills in various domains to form foundation for success in school.

 

  • Develop necessary language skills.  This will help with cognition, understanding spoken language to communicate and solve problems and develop early literacy skills.
  • Establish relationships with other children and adults.  This encourages friendships, cooperation with others, and learning social skills and rules that will help them as they get older.
  • Demonstrate confidence and independence.
  • Promote physical development of fine motor and gross motor skills (small and large muscles).  This helps children recognize the importance of healthy lifestyles.
  • Develop early literacy skills.  This lays the foundation for reading and writing.
  • Develop math skills. Children will gain an understanding of numbers, shapes, quantities, sequencing, time, patterns and problem solving.
  • Develop science skills.  Hand-on activities will help children explore their senses; understand movement, weight, volume, and where they and animals live.
  • Understand social studies concepts.  Children will gain a sense of their role in being a family member, discover how they are alike and different, learn how to get along and share responsibilities, follow rules and cooperate.  They will also become aware of people in their community such as policeman, firefighter, doctor, etc…
  • Explore the creative arts.  Understand that they can be creative through art, music and dance.  They can imitate “real-life” through dramatic play by taking on roles of people in their life.
