The Léman PreK 2 Program is designed to ignite the curiosity and wonder of young children, and prepare them for academic and social/emotional success in a nurturing, play-based classroom environment. Under the expert guidance of our talented Early Childhood faculty, two-year-olds at Léman foster their independence and confidence through inquiry-based exploration of a range of materials and manipulatives across literacy, math, art, science and music. Two-year-olds also receive weekly Mandarin, Spanish, and French instruction. Our play-based program is designed to cultivate a love of learning, build a strong sense of community and belonging, and partner with parents during the most influential time in a child's development.
The PreK 2 Program provides an educational pathway to Léman's ongoing Early Childhood and Lower School Program, where increasing academic rigor and special classes are offered to further hone students' skills, passions, and interests.
We build the foundation of pre-literacy skills in our PreK 2 curriculum through daily interactive storytime, building conceptual understanding through the introduction of new vocabulary in thematic units, and surrounding children with a print-rich environment and exposure to letterform and sound.
PreK 2 students are introduced to the concepts of counting and patterning, which build the foundation for strong mathematical skills. Using a variety of sensory materials ranging from paint and Play-doh to beads and water, PreK 2 students make connections and begin to understand cause and effect, a foundational science skill.
PreK 2 students receive instruction in Mandarin, Spanish, and French from Léman’s dedicated Early Childhood World Language faculty. Through song, movement, games, and cultural study, World Language instruction is delivered in an engaging, developmentally appropriate manner to set the foundation for language proficiency.
At two years of age, children begin to understand the world as concentric circles around them. We introduce the concept of community in our classroom, starting with a “study of me” followed by our classroom community and family, to help children understand their important place in our world and those who share it with us.
As a precursor to becoming a strong reader and writer, PreK 2 students develop their fine motor skills through exploration with a range of materials including paint, markers, crayons and beads. In addition, we help PreK 2 students navigate learning spatial awareness and development of fundamental tumbling skills in our renovated playspace for toddlers.
Building music literacy is core to the Léman academic program. Through daily song and movement, PreK 2 students apply a full kinesthetic approach to growing their music skills. We use song to build community and a sense of belonging in our classroom, as well as introduce the foundational skills of rhythm and beat.
