The Pre-K 3 & 4 programs have a set of four Learning Strands that underpin all learning and development. Each of the four Learning Strands describes what children will experience and learn about through contextualized activities woven into thematic units of learning. Each unit of learning is carefully designed around a central theme, holistically linking all four Learning Strands to relevant and engaging activities that can be adapted and extended to meet individual needs.
