M.C. Perry Primary School offers a high-quality prekindergarten program that reflects best practices and provides health and nutrition, family involvement, and social services. This multipronged approach elevates the learning experience to serve the whole child and their families.
The educational component provides children with a safe and secure learning environment providing varied, hands-on, engaging experiences that support every child to develop socially, intellectually, physically, and emotionally in a manner appropriate to their age and stage of development.
The health component provides a comprehensive school health services program that includes a broad range of medical, dental, and mental health services to PK children to assist in their physical, emotional, cognitive, and social development.
The nutrition component provides lunch and snack experiences that meet the student’s daily nutritional needs, recognizing individual differences and cultural patterns, and thereby promoting sound physical, cognitive, social, and emotional growth and development. PK students participate in family style dining, serving themselves each day in the classroom. Family style dining encourages learning and development before, during, and after mealtimes.
Parent Involvement Component:
The family involvement component provides intentional experiences and activities that foster parent-school partnership and enhances the parental role as the principal influence in a child’s education and development. DoDEA recognizes parents as integral contributors to the educational program and to their communities and provides opportunities for parent participation in classroom and other program activities.
Social Services Component:
The social services component provides information to parents to increase awareness of community services and resources to enhance family life.
