Preparing Your Child for Kindergarten

Our modern approach to learning integrates STEAM concepts in all we do throughout our Preschool and Pre-K classrooms. Through hands-on activities in Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math, we’re confident your little one will grow with confidence.

Our teachers work closely with local school districts to develop a plan to help Pennsylvania children successfully transition from preschool to kindergarten. And it’s working! U-GRO students have a five-year average kindergarten readiness score of 94.8% across all domains.

So be confident your preschooler will be challenged and stimulated, as they become lifelong learners. In both Preschool and Pre-K, your child will master important school-readiness skills, including:

  • Creativity
  • Self-confidence
  • Independence
  • Responsibility
  • Social awareness
  • Gross motor skills and fine motor skills
  • Scientific thinking skills and investigation
  • Early reading and writing
  • Mathematical reasoning and concepts
