Next week we celebrate books! The book fair will be going on all week, plus PreK3-Kindergarten students will dress up as their favorite book character on Wednesday. Becoming interested in and excited about reading is one of the best indicators a child is ready to begin emergent reading, but do you know the necessary foundational components? It’s so much more than letters and letter sounds! Here is a summary of the four literacy objectives necessary for developing successful readers and how you can support your child's development in each area. (You see these on your progress reports in Toddler 3 and up).
HPPDS is so special to our family! We are a 3 generation day school family. What we value most about the Day School is the nurturing Christian environment and the whole child approach. You can feel the love in the halls and classrooms. Our oldest learned how to read in kindergarten at HPPDS, but most importantly, through the love of his teachers, he learned that he is a unique, special child of God.
Curriculum addresses all developmental areas in a whole-child approach.
HPPDS specializes in early childhood education.
Students learn special subjects from experts in those fields.
I love to read! I love reading a good novel at the beach, flipping through magazines for home decorating ideas, reading educational material to become a better teacher. The world comes alive through the gift of books! Although children develop at their own pace, there are some things you can do at home to encourage your child to become a strong reader.
Thank you for voting HPPDS best preschool in Park Cities People for the second year in a row! It is an honor and a pleasure to serve this community. There are many things that make HPPDS special, and the fellowship and community of our families is certainly one of them...
