Our Pre-Kindergarten program is a preparatory program for our students on their way to Kindergarten. We polish the skills already obtained in the Sprouts and Preschool classes and use them in new and powerful ways. Our children learn to use the "sight words" they've gathered to string together sentences and delve into the exciting world of reading. Our math skills begin to focus on concepts of time, measurement, and simple addition and subtraction. We encourage our children to explore beyond the limits of the classroom with once in a lifetime lessons and experiences.
Ms. Yolande moved to the U.S.A. thirty-five years ago from the island of Sri-Lanka to pursue her teaching career as a Montessori Directress. Her hard work and dedication helped her to open her own school in Clovis, New Mexico, which she operated for seven years. She moved to Colorado Springs seeking greener pastures. She then was successful in opening her second school; she operated her school in Colorado Springs for over twenty years. She understands the importance of preparing young students to reach higher goals and she is absolutely committed to providing your child/children with the best foundation possible. She has high expectations and standards that she will clearly demonstrate in the classroom with a lot of TLC and understanding. Aside from teaching and experiencing the joy that children bring to her life, she enjoys cooking, arts and crafts, floral and interior design, novelty cakes, gardening, the outdoors, and she also love animals!
