|What is Prekindergarten?|
Prekindergarten strengthens children's language, social skills and learning opportunities in the rich atmosphere of play. It is a busy place, bubbling with laughter and excitement as children interact with each other and learn through play. South East Cornerstone Public School Division's prekindergarten programs provide a high quality, age-appropriate, play-based learning experience for 3 and 4 year olds in a school setting. Our focus is on the healthy development of the whole child. Children, family members, and early childhood educators work together to enrich children's learning and growth.
