Early Childhood Options for 2021-2022
Discussion:  Virginia Smith Elementary is considering adding all day Pre-K.   A survey will be sent out to parents and the survey will also be posted on the school website.

The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) defines Developmentally Appropriate Practice as "methods that promote each child’s optimal development and learning through a strengths-based, play-based approach to joyful, engaged learning." A full-day Pre-K program would embrace this definition. Each aspect of the day - from learning experiences to guided and self-directed play - the children’s needs will be at the heart of the experience. Our vision for Virginia Smith Elementary epitomizes developmentally appropriate learning and our teachers work tirelessly to provide quality learning every moment of the day.
