Why Pre-K 4 SA

The Importance of Preschool

Children begin learning the moment they are born but studies have shown that age four marks a critical point in the learning process. At age four, children enter a crucial phase where they start to develop memory, imagination and understanding. A child’s natural tendency, play, engages all these skills.

Pre-K 4 SA’s program is designed to utilize play to build a foundation in concepts such as math, science, language and art while increasing language and social skills. Through strategically-designed play, Pre-K 4 SA builds the foundation for a love of learning that extends beyond the preschool years.
