PAS feels that a strong early childhood foundation is paramount for future success for children, not only academically but socially as well. The Pre-School has 3 sections, Pre–School, Pre-Kindergarten, and Kindergarten. Prospective students for Pre-School have to be 3 years old to be accepted into the Pre-School class. PAS uses an activity and theme based instructional model for its early childhood classes from Pre-School to Kindergarten.
The big moment has arrived and you need to let go of your baby. Yesterday she was crawling, today she is ready to make friends and go to big school. But how important is preschool?
"There's increasing evidence that children gain a lot from going to Pre-School," says Parents advisor Dr. Judy Findlay, PhD, Faculty Trainer George Washington University, USA.
Children need some sort of group experience before they start Kindergarten. This can be achieved by enrolling your child in Pre-School, even if it is two or three days a week, as that will allow your child to make friends, learn how to share and follow directions. Your child will learn how to raise her hand, take turns and share the teacher’s attention. All of this helps your child to have good social and behavior skills.
