The Jefferson Parish Public School System is offering pre-kindergarten classes at most school sites during the school year. This program is a full-day program designed to better prepare your child for kindergarten.
Each day the students participate in a consistent daily routine that includes large and small group activities, story time, center time, outdoor play, snack time and rest time. The curriculum provides appropriate child-initiated and teacher directed activities that stimulate the child's intellectual, social, emotional, and physical growth. Language development is also emphasized through daily exposure to music, stories, finger plays, nursery rhymes, and dramatic play. The learning environment is child-centered and is made up of a variety of learning centers that foster creativity, problem-solving, social skills, and concept development.
