Pre-K Education

Our Pre-K classroom serves ages 4 and 5, with a staff to child ratio of 1:10. We provide the children with the Highscope curriculum and weekly themes and a letter per week from September to May. Our focus in this classroom is provide the children with activities to help them transition to Kindergarten. Our teachers are in partnership with local districts’ transition meetings to successfully provide children with kindergarten readiness skills. We provide a smaller group setting to help meet individual needs as well as providing group activities. We focus on social development and language and literacy as well as motor development by providing indoor and outdoor experiences. Children go on several field trips throughout the year with and without our Preschool classroom. They have explored the St. Vincent Planetarium, Apple Hill Playhouse, Pittsburgh Zoo, pumpkin patch, Carnegie Science Center, Natural History Museum, etc. We provide at the end of the year a Pre-Kindergarten Graduation ceremony, and many children remain in our care until that first day of Kindergarten.

Are You Up-to-Date

Our family has been going to Today’s Learning Childcare since we moved to the area in late 2012. The teachers are great and you can tell that they truly enjoy their job.

We were a little worried about what we would do during the summers once our son started Kindergarten (there aren’t many summer camps in the area that are convenient for full- time working parents). Luck was on our side when TLC started a Summer Camp Program for school age children in 2016. To say our son LOVED the program would be an understatement. He couldn’t wait to go every day and talked about all the fun things they would do during the day. I think he appreciated the variety. They would take a field trip once a week and came home with cute little projects they worked on during the day. In fact, our daughter was in the Pre-K room during the time and told us that she couldn’t wait to go to the Summer Program when she was in Kindergarten. ~ Michelle Rennie
