Why Preschool?

Long-term studies are unequivocal. Attending Preschool increases:

  • High School Graduation Rates

  • Years of College Completed 

  • Lifetime Earned Income 

Every dollar we invest in preschool provides a 13 dollar return - because when the achievement gap is addressed before kindergarten, it limits the need for expensive interventions in early elementary years.

Preschool is important because it exposes a child to all the foundational pieces and attitudes on which they build their educational career. PCSD Preschool exposes children to new experiences and ideas and then expands on them; staff explore academic language and build academic skills; they negotiate and practice friendship, cooperation, collaboration, and confidence each day. 

A high-quality early childhood education provides children with cognitive, behavioral, and social skills they don't learn at home. Kindergarten teachers (and beyond) find it easier to teach a child who possesses a strong preschool education background in language skills, listening comprehension, attention management skills, and a positive attitude toward learning.

Preschool Curriculum

“We Can” program:

The We Can program integrates assessment with instruction and offers teachers multiple opportunities to observe children, identify their capabilities and needs, and monitor their progress. We Can is built to include teacher-led instruction and guided practice with opportunities for productive, purposeful play to promote the development of literacy, language, numeracy, and general cognitive, social, and emotional functioning. We Can's classroom management component is a research- and evidence-based system that allows teachers to manage the environment while children learn to manage themselves within the structure provided by routines. This component provides small and whole group instruction and Learning Centers for positively and proactively creating order in the classroom environment so that teachers can focus on instruction and set expectations for students.

We Can is appropriate for all preschool students—general education, special education, English language learners, and high achievers.
