The  Pre-K at PS 84 Afterschool Program

The Pre K Program is designed and directed by the Arts and Athletics Afterschool staff. This program affords all children the opportunity to engage in developmentally appropriate activities in a supervised and safe environment that supports and enriches their school experience as they develop new friendships and grow in social skills, confidence, and independence.

Preschoolers will explore an array of colorful adventures and enrichment activities through a monthly theme and education-based curriculum.  Each theme contains a variety of activities including Language (French and Spanish) Arts/Literacy, Math, Science, Creative Arts, Music, and Movement, as well as free play and socialization. Our curriculum addresses all aspects of language: listening, speaking, vocabulary building, but most importantly, a lifelong interest in other cultures.

During clement weather, students enrolled in the Pre-K Afterschool Program will enjoy outdoor play including, nature explorations in the park and supervised play in the yard. Please be sure to send your children with weather-appropriate outerwear.

Please note, we will serve a small healthy snack each day—parents are welcome to provide any preferred snacks.
