Early Childhood Education Program

Boys
Welcome to East Grand Preparatory Early Childhood Education Program:

Better Beginnings/Inicios Mejores

At East Grand Preparatory (EGP), A Cityscape School, we are committed to providing an Early Childhood program that provides stimulating and foundational learning experiences for our students and prepares them to be Kindergarten ready. We understand children’s learning and intellectual growth are affected by the daily experiences they have in preschool and how these experiences can influence the rest of their lives. Our program implements research-based socio-emotional health development and developmentally appropriate practices to help our young students become independent and inquiring learners. The Pre-K teachers plan purposeful and playful activities to target the skills students need the most help with in order to help them develop and be academically prepared for the next grade level.  Our PK3 and PK4 classes have curriculums approved by the State of Texas. The curriculum for PK3 is based on the Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework which has been developed based on research regarding the skills, behaviors, and concepts young children should know and be able to do during their formative years.  The curriculum for PK4 is based on the Texas PK guidelines, approved by the Commissioner of Education, and provides preschool students with learning experiences and a foundation that guides children academically, socially, and emotionally.

 En la escuela preparatoria East Grand, estamos comprometidos a proveer un programa de Educación Temprana que provea estimulación y experiencias de aprendizaje fundamentales para nuestros estudiantes y prepararlos para que estén listos para kindergarten. Comprendemos que el aprendizaje de los niños y su crecimiento intelectual se ve afectado por las experiencias diarias que ellos tengan en preescolar y cómo estas experiencias pueden influenciar el resto de sus vidas. Nuestro programa implementa un desarrollo de salud socioemocional basado en investigación y prácticas de desarrollo apropiadas para ayudar a nuestros niños a ser estudiantes inquisitivos (indagantes). Las maestras de Pre-K planean actividades y juegos con propósito para identificar las habilidades en las que los estudiantes necesitan más ayuda para su desarrollo y estar académicamente preparados para el siguiente grado. Nuestras clases de PK3 y PK4 tienen currículos aprobados por el estado de Texas. El currículo de PK3 está basado en el Programa de “Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework” (marco de resultados de temprano aprendizaje) el cual ha sido desarrollado basado en investigaciones relacionadas con las destrezas, comportamientos y conceptos que los niños pequeños deben saber durante sus años de formación. El currículo de PK4 está basado en los lineamientos de Texas para PK, aprobado por el Comisario de Educación y provee a los estudiantes de preescolar las experiencias de aprendizaje y la base que guien a los niños académica, social y emocionalmente.
