Goals and Objectives

It is our goal at The Learning Path to prepare your child for Kindergarten whether they will attend a private or public school in any community. At the beginning of the Pre-K year, your child should have some basic skills in the areas of math, reading-readiness, social/emotional development, and practical skills. Strong work habits, listening skills, and appropriate behaviors are necessary for your child to smoothly transition into Kindergarten. 
The following is a list of skills that your child should acquire while in Pre-K;

*  Separate easily from parents
*  Self-help skills (clean up after play, dress oneself, independent bathroom skills)
*  Play independently and stay focused with a friend for 15 minutes
*  Follow basic classroom rules, structure, and directions
