Pre-Kindergarten (3 and 4 year olds)

Our three and four year old students focus on early learning concepts before entering Kindergarten. There are many ways you can help, including: reading with the students, helping with craft projects and assisting with their language skills. Volunteer shifts are from 9:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m., Monday through Friday. Other fun and helpful activities include:

  1. Reading and helping an individual student with English. 
  2. Working on beginning letter sounds and reading sight words.
  3. Working on puzzles, “moon sand”, play house, books and letters. 
  4. Helping the Pre-K Teacher with daily activities.

There are opportunities available with flexible hours to help the teachers with preparing materials for class.
