Preschool & PreK
At preschool age, children learn to prepare themselves for kindergarten. Our preschool program emphasizes cognitive lessons and developmentally appropriate play, meshed together to keep learning fun. The program is tailored to help children coordinate their individual learning into group learning.
Children learn to help their peers during journal writing and participate in hands-on math and science projects. With guidance, they will begin to predict and even alter outcomes.
At The Giving Tree, we recognize that children have a need for acceptance and self-identity, and our preschool program will help them learn to share, be kind and handle conflict.
We continue to help build social and emotional development as special relationships become stronger. We enhance our childrens vocabulary through the use of word walls and real world experiences that boost creativity and imagination

Exploration & curiosity: Our fun approach to learning inspires children to seek new information and continue developing their skills. Every day at preschool, your little one can look forward to an awe-inspiring exploration of our beautiful Philly neighborhoods, stimulating group activities, and creative story activities that motivate your child to read and write for a lifetime.
Practical life skills: The benefits of the best preschool guidance go beyond the basics of math and literacy. Functional activities that have practical value are essential to our well-rounded learning plans. While mastering puzzles, solving problems as a group, and playing games that require focused attention and coordination, gross and fine motor skill development happens naturally.
Impactful social growth: In harmony with functional growth and gross motor skill development, many of our best activities teach children values like sharing, teamwork, and empathy for others. We lead by example at our preschool, demonstrating how to treat each other with respect, kindness, and helpful attitudes.
