Early Learning Program
Updates Regarding Early Learning Programs During School Closures Due to CoViD-19
100% of Plato Academy VPK students are determined to be ready for Kindergarten.
Our caring, experienced, highly qualified teachers are dedicated to providing a rich, nurturing environment that will prepare your student for kindergarten. We promote independence in an organized atmosphere, with a daily structured program. We also teach students to work well with a group through listening, sharing, and cooperation. We use an accredited curriculum in the classroom to prepare students for the next level of education and to challenge each student to their fullest potential. We combine Smart Boards, music, imagination, and play with our innovative curriculum.
For the success of each student, our program will require the support of parents, community, administrators, and highly qualified teachers. We strive to create an environment in which all students are cherished and develop memories of compassion, inspiration and affirmation. We further believe that the ultimate learning environment must be full of excitement and fun for all students.
Because we are committed to the individual success of each child, regular assessments are conducted throughout the school year. Through the use of both authentic and developmental assessments, we are able to document learning progress over time and adapt our curriculum to the unique cognitive, social, and emotional needs of each child. Our school curriculum is broad and we offer learning opportunities in the following areas:
- Literacy Skills
- Outdoor Play
- Examining Science & Nature
- Music and Movement
- Creative learning through hands-on experiences
- Commitment to Character
- Exploring the World Around Us
- Numeracy Skills
- Critical Thinking
- Phonological Awareness
- Small-group instruction
- One-on-one formal assessments to track students’ progress
- Group activities to develop social skills
- Daily communication between teachers and parents to keep you informed about your child’s day
