FRPS Pre Kindergarten Program

Philosophy

Based on research, it is the belief of the Fort Rucker Schools that the early years of a child's life are the most crucial in terms of total development: social, emotional, physical, cognitive, aesthetic, and language. In recognizing the importance of this development, the Fort Rucker School System has developed a high-quality, developmentally appropriate four-year-old program. This program acknowledges that each child is an individual with his own personality, history, style of learning, strengths, weaknesses, and interests. It emphasizes the development of self-worth, dignity, and autonomy. The child's family and cultural heritage are accepted and respected.

Pod 2 Teachers

The program encourages the growth of the whole child, in which the child's social, emotional, physical, language, and intellectual capacities are interactive and independent. It promotes a play activity curriculum and provides an experience-based approach which is hands-on. The teacher has an active role in facilitating and participating in the children's active construction of their own knowledge. This provides for choice and flexibility for the teacher and child.
