Pre-K Classes

BOTK PreK classes support parents in their role as their child's first teacher by having parents participate in the class with their child. This gives parents hands-on experience in skill building activities they can do at home during the week between classes.

Children and families become familiar with the same curriculum, classroom rituals and the routines that are in the daytime PreK classes. BOTK PreK evening classes also have time for the children to socialize and play while the parents meet together to discuss classroom activities and kindergarten transition topics.
