WV Pre-K Class

   The Growing Place is Kanawha County Schools collaborative site.  We offer a high quality Pre-K program led by a trained and certified teacher.  In the Pre-K class, children build on the skills learned in the 3&4-year-old Preschool class and focus on Kindergarten preparation.  Our goal is to help children develop self-confidence and a β€œcan-do attitude.”

Many learning opportunities are available throughout the day and most often occur in the form of play.  Teachers in this classroom also provide both large and small group instruction using Creative Cirriculum, the WV Early Learning Standards Framework and the PATHS Curriculum.

Each child must have an application and required documentation on file with Kanawha County Schools in order to participate in this program.
