3-6 years. Pre-K Academy offers play classes that teach reading readiness skills and letter writing. Children participate in brain-building games that help develop focus, working memory, and impulse control. The Pre-K Academy classes give children a running start into kindergarten!

Letter Engineers

Come build letters with us! Students will begin to explore their creative sides by using materials such as sensory trays, puppet pencils, finger flashlights, and letter sticks to learn all about letters and sounds! Children will learn many essential pre-reading skills such as syllable segmentation, rhyming, phonological awareness, and correct letter formation.

Reading Rock Stars

This class will have your child rocking and rolling into the world of language and literacy! The Reading Rock Stars curriculum uses a multi-sensory, very explicit, systematic approach to teach phonemic awareness. Children will learn how to orally blend and segment words, identify rhymes, segment syllables, and more. Our educational learning props make getting the brain ready to read fun and engaging.
