  • The BPS Pre-K Program has been designed to be developmentally appropriate with a focus on early literacy, math skills, and social skills, all of which are learned through play and hands-on activities.  The center-based classroom is the heart of our Pre-K learning environment. Time spent daily in learning centers provides the setting for children to safely explore and learn about themselves and the people, places, and things in their environment. Our classrooms use their learning centers for purposeful and intentional play, as this is the most effective way for young children to learn. To many, this looks like “play time.” However, Pre-K children learn through exploration. By providing a learning objective for each learning center, the teacher is setting the stage for an engaging and productive learning experience.
