LEARNING THE PSA WAY

At each stage of development children are introduced to a greater breadth of learning techniques and thematic units. We also support them socially and emotionally using the Nurtured Heart Approach to create health relationships and ignite greatness in children.
Our students surprise us every day with their capacity for learning. They are inquisitive, bright and eager to try new things!

Students in our pre-school program, the Freshman (ages 2 1/2 – 3) and Sophomore Class (age 3), have a wonderful introduction to school. Teachers are sensitive to the physical and emotional needs of new students, particularly in transitioning students and parents through the separation process. Letters, numbers, colors, shapes and computers are taught in an engaging and concrete manner. Potty training is not a requirement for admission into these classes. Students participate in the entire core curriculum. Don’t underestimate these youngsters. You’ll be amazed how much our children learn!

Stepping up to the Senior South (Pre-K) and Senior North Class (Pre-K/Kindergarten) prepares students for elementary school. Children are exposed to a full curriculum including Math, Reading, Handwriting, Literature, Science, Social Studies, Spanish, Computers, Music, Fine Arts, Dramatic and Free Play. Senior North and South students work cooperatively to create special projects to enhance our Native American and Astronomy units of study, to name a few!Circle Time, Science, Social Studies, Fine Arts, Handwriting and Journal Writing are taught through whole group instruction. Students also work in small groups for a more individualized approach to learning. Small groups allow for students to be challenged without becoming frustrated. Assessments are done in the Fall and Spring and reviewed during conferences.
