Preschool preparation is for children who will attend elementary school the following year or for child who qualify for gifted educational services.
Teaching is divided into 20-25 minute blocks and focuses on skills such as fine motor, visual and auditory perception, attention and memory, numeracy and school readiness in general. Emphasis is placed on the confluent reading method, and tracing with eyes to avoid possible disorders such as dyslexia.
