Our Pre-K Approach

Involving children in experiences that relate to their lives makes learning fun and exciting. SCA believes in an approach to teaching and learning designed to help preschool-aged scholars feel capable and find enjoyment in their pursuit of knowledge through hands-on learning with a balance of play and discovery, and self-initiated and teacher-initiated activities. SCA’s preschool program will support and enhance all aspects of each child’s cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development.
