Pre-kindergarten Social Studies

Pre-kindergarten students are fascinated by the world beyond their homes. The focus of the curriculum is on learning about the new classroom community and developing social skills to promote respect for self, others, and the environment. 

Our pre-kindergarten students will:

  • appreciate that families are structured in different ways
  • understand that all people share similar needs and feelings
  • respect and appreciate the similarities and differences among people
  • identify the people in the broader school community
  • participate in establishing classroom rules and learn to respect them
  • view themselves as an active, valued member of the classroom community
  • develop cooperation, communication, responsibility, empathy, and self-control
  • navigate the complexities of healthy friendships
  • celebrate occasions, accomplishments, and personal news
  • contribute to the larger community through community service projects
  • understand that our six core values define our community
