For our 4 and 5 year old children

Pinecone Program

What environment the little ones are in. What do the little ones do all day.

Prepared for Kindergarten

In the Pinecone Program, we welcome the preschoolers (4 years old and up). Our teachers focus on developing supportive, trusting relationships with the children in our care. We create rich environments that encourage very young children to explore and discover the world around them, helping them to engage in experiences designed to support their optimal development in all domains.

We also value and respect parents as their children’s first teachers. We partner with parents in learning everything we can about their infants and toddlers to better care for their needs and plan for their development. We document, track and communicate closely to the parents about the children’s development and progress. As a result, our programs create a strong three-way bond between child, parent, and caregiver.

We adopt HighScope Curriculum in our school. Ongoing child and program assessment is an underlying component of the HighScope Curriculum. Objective observations of children allow teachers to intentionally plan to build on individual and group interests and scaffold development by supporting what children know while gently extending their learning. Below are the Key Developmental Indicators. The curriculum focuses on these six content areas: 

Approaches to Learning

Children demonstrate initiative. They make plans, engage in the interested activities, solve problems encountered in play, utilize resources and reflect on their experiences.

Social and Emotional Development

Children have positive self-identity and senses of competence. They recognize and regulate their emotions, show empathy, participate in the community of the classroom, build relationships with other children and adults. Children also develop moral direction.

Physical Development and Health

Children develop gross-motor and fine-motor skills. They are aware of their bodies and hot to navigate them in space. They carry out personal care routines and engage in healthy practices.

Communication, Language and Literacy

Children express themselves using a variety of words and phrases. They identify alphabetic names and the sounds. Children read for pleasure and information. They also write for many different purposes. Children use English and their home languages.


Children use number words, symbols, shapes, units, patterns and spatial relationships. They count things, and combine/separate quantities of objects. They also use information about quantity to draw conclusions, make decisions and solve problems.

Creative Arts

Children express and represent what they observe, think, imagine, and feel through forms of art, music, movement and pretend play. They appreciate the creative arts.

Science & Technology

Children observe process, classify materials, experiment their ideas, predict the outcomes, and draw conclusions. They communicate their ideas of how things work, gather knowledge of the physical world and use tools and technology.
