The Junior Pre-Kindergarten has an academic emphasis and the traditional values of an Advent education with programs in physical activity, art, music, and French.
Daily, physical activity through structured and unstructured exercise is an integral part of the curriculum. An emphasis on physical activity promotes the development of healthy habits and improves gross motor skills.
Art instruction offers opportunities to explore colors and textures. Art gives students the chance to strengthen fine motor skills and hand strength while being creative, exploring new ideas, and carrying out plans.
Music education ignites a variety of child development areas and skills for school readiness (intellectual, social-emotional, motor, language, and overall literacy). Exposing children to music during early development helps them learn the sounds and meanings of words while strengthening memory skills.
Multiple studies show that early-start, foreign language learning improves cognitive skills and academic performance long-term.
