Welcome to Pre-K at Hometown Elementary. Our preschool environment and curriculum is designed to encompass the children, their families, the community, and the world. The Putnam County Pre-K program uses Creative Curriculum to guide the educational purposes and experiences of each individual child. Our philosophy is designed to create a safe and positive learning environment to support individualized learning. The teachers, families, and children work as a team to create all learning experiences based on the children’s interest through project-based learning. Children learn in the moment with hands on teacher support.
At Hometown Elementary, we believe school should be a positive experience for all children. Throughout the year, children in our Pre-K program will learn the 7 Habits of Happy Kids by Sean Covey. Each habit exhibits a positive approach to teach children appropriate social and emotional skills. Parents of our Pre-K students have the opportunity to review and implement these habits at home. Check out these habits and additional information regarding our Pre-K classroom in our newsletters on the Hometown Elementary website (www.edline.net/pages/Hometown_Elementary_School).
