- Kindergarten skills – A majority of the Pre-Kindergarten Programming is based on the Kindergarten and Grade one curriculum.
- Focus on Independence – Children are active participants in their environment. They take part in maintaining, preparing and organizing their learning environment.
- Scaffolding learning – Typically the children in the Pre-Kindergarten program are working on literacy skills such as beginning reading and writing.
