VPK is a FREE program for students four years old on or before September 1st.
This is a time when the majority of a child’s basic understanding will be determined. At AWCD we take the time to build each development milestone in the children that attend our school, so that when they reach this critical age, they are ready to retain and understand the concepts that will be taught and will be well prepared for Kindergarten. We believe that by taking the time in our toddler classrooms to build gross motor skills, when they are in Pre K, they will have well developed hands that are ready to grasp a pencil correctly. We believe that by building their independence, we equip them to think for themselves, ask meaningful questions, and have higher level cognitive thinking skills. We believe in taking the time to prepare your whole child. they will not just memorize the alphabets, but will understand the meaning of the letters and their sounds and where to find them. They will not just recognize the numbers 1 to 20, but will be able to do simple addition and subtraction. Children will be in an enriching environment where they are in control of their learning, and each child has the opportunity to express themselves and discover and experience their learning in a uniquely individual way.
