Young Knights Pre-School Class - Age-Range Extended

Presbyterian Day School is excited to announce that the age eligibility for the new Young Knights class beginning in the Fall of 2015 has been expanded. This new pre-school class for boys is now accepting students turning three between June 1 and November 30, 2015.

The early childhood years are the most strategic and important time for a child to experience a rich and stimulating learning environment. Research tells us that the years between birth and age 5 are the most formative years for brain development. It further supports that there are critical periods when the brain demands certain types of input to maximize the consolidation of learning. Early, formal education has a significant impact on long-term cognitive development and later school success.

Through hands-on exploration and meaningful play the Young Knight’s learning is guided by a curriculum that includes:

  • Multi-sensory activities

  • Fine and gross motor skill development

  • Hands-on art activities

  • Music appreciation

  • Language development and enrichment

  • Cooking adventures

  • Thematic learning centers

  • Self-help skills

  • Cooperative play and social skills

  • Character development: Building Boys, Making Men character education program

One of the joys of working with young boys is their sense of wonder and curiosity. The Young Knight’s day is filled with music, movement, art, and discovery. Boys in the Young Knights class learn how to interact and make new friends while learning self-discipline. They begin to discover God’s world and their place in it, all in a loving, nurturing environment.

“At PDS, boys are known, nurtured, and loved. Our Young Knights will be well-prepared to enter pre-kindergarten and the world of more formalized education.” — Debbie Isom, Head of Early Childhood.
