Pre-k Instruction
Pre-K is a place that turns ordinary experiences into extraordinary moments of learning! For many children, Pre-K is their first introduction to school. Pre-K is a great environment that lays the foundation for positive attitudes toward school and encourages developmentally appropriate practices. Play is very important in establishing a learning environment for young children. Pre-K provides an environment that promotes growth in all developmental domains including language, literacy, math, physical, emotional and social development. The Pre-K curriculum and activities promotes readiness skills that help prepare the students for Kindergarten. We pledge to work hand in hand with your family to form a strong, supportive partnership for learning. We know that you and your child will discover that Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools Pre-K Program is truly something to smile about!
