Curriculum Policy


Christ the King’s Pre-Kindergarten program follows a developmentally appropriate curriculum designed for four-five year old children. We have purchased the most up to date Pre-Kindergarten Reading and Math curriculum from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Classroom resources including religious education are provided on an appropriate level. This curriculum provides parents with definitive feedback about how their child is progressing throughout the year in areas of Social/Emotional Development, Physical Development, Cognitive Development, and Language Development and how prepared the child is becoming for Kindergarten.


All learning takes place through experience. During each class day, the children will participate in large and small group activities. They will work with other children and independently. The classroom is set up in learning centers. Within each center children manipulate, explore, create, experiment, and discover with differing materials. The teacher, with the assistance of a classroom aide, guides the children through their learning experiences.


Areas of learning will include: language and cognitive/thinking skills, fine and gross motor skills, self-help skills, perception and sensory experience, children’s literature, social skills, pre-reading/reading skills including letter recognition, pre-math skills including sorting, patterns, calendar, numbers, and counting.
