UA's Award-Winning Private PreK
Union Academy’s private, high-quality Pre-K program was named Best of the Best by Monroe Enquirer-Journal readers. Teachers with degrees in early childhood education provide a high-quality experience for three- and four-year-old children who are ready to be challenged. Small class sizes – at least one staff member per 10 children – provide individual attention.
The program incorporates classroom lessons with hands-on learning, with a focus on the state prekindergarten standards and kindergarten readiness. Teachers will evaluate each child’s skills and build an instruction program based on his or her needs.
The language arts program focuses on letters, letter sounds and how they come together to form words – all important to build reading skills. Math lessons include number theory and counting actual objects to understand math concepts. Lessons will also incorporate movement, literature and music as children practice problem solving and build thinking skills.
