Austin Peace Academy’s Pre-K program gives children a head start in kindergarten and beyond. Each teacher is highly responsive to every child’s ability and stage of development. The Pre-K program focuses on the “whole child.” We work to develop each child’s social, physical, emotional, and academic learning.
The classrooms are print-rich environments and there is a strong emphasis on books and developing an appreciation for reading. Exciting activities are planned to reinforce concepts, align with curriculum, and support hands-on learning. The facilities offer a beautiful outdoor shaded play area for students to investigate, explore, and appreciate nature.
Austin Peace Academy offers two levels in the Pre-School Program: Pre-K3 and Pre-K4. The minimum requirements for enrollment are for the child to be fully potty-trained and at least 3-years-old at the time of admission.
Pre-K3 – Students who turn 4 after September 1st will be placed in the Pre-K3 group.
Pre-K4 – Students who turn 4 before September 1st can be placed in the Pre-K4 group based on the child’s social, emotional, physical, and intellectual level.
The Pre-K3 Program follows the Fireflies curriculum provided by Funshine Express. Fireflies® is a research and evidence-based preschool curriculum kit that creates enthusiasm for learning and builds school readiness skills. These preschool activity kits provide activities for children with various developmental needs, experiences, and diverse cultural backgrounds. All of the activities and assessment materials are aligned with your early learning standards.
In addition to the Fireflies program, PreK3 students begin to develop a familiarity with the Arabic language and focus on social-emotional learning, emphasizing good manners and proper interactions. The PreK3 program is a space filled with love and laughter, dedicated to nurturing the whole child, and allowing to learn about and understand the world through play and exploration, with gentle guidance along the way.
