Learning Community Charter School

PreK Daily Schedule: 

8:10 - 8:20 a.m.

8:20 - 8:40 a.m. 
Journal Writing 
Students are given prompts or invited to practice writing about whatever interests them. Enthusiasm and creativity are prized far more than technical perfection in letter-writing. 

8:40 - 9 a.m. 
Morning Meeting 
Morning meeting is where teachers discuss the plans for the day, and the subject students are currently engaged in. Throughout the year, PreK students examine studies that resonate with them, for example -- trees, balls, and neighborhoods, learning through imaginative play. Pre-academic skills are woven into the day; when teachers take attendance with the class, students learn number sense and pre-math skills.

Special events/activities
As often as possible, PreK takes Walking Trips through the neighborhood to incorporate the real world into their lessons. From visiting the park during the Tree Study, to the Laundromat during the Clothing Study, it's a great way to learn. Family members are invited to come visit class for WOW Sessions where they can share wisdom about any topic of their choosing - from hobbies, to vocations, PreK students want to learn about it all! 

Annually there is a PreK/Kindergarten Prom, a fun annual evening event that lets family and students come for a special occasion dance. There is also a Fashion Show where families are invited to come in and see student work. 


The Road to Kindergarten: 
We have a robust program to connect PreK students to their Kindergarten peers, so they are ready to move on to the next grade at the end of the year. Throughout the year, PreK students visit the Kindergarten classrooms and there are sessions for parents and children on what to expect.
