Our Pre-K Preschool Program

The following is a list of age-appropriate skills and concepts for our pre-K preschool class. These will be included in the curriculum.

  • Numbers – Identify numbers 1-20 (and beyond) by grouping them into sets, simple addition and subtraction, and matching the correct number to a set of objects
  • Colors – Identify 10 basic colors: red, blue, green, yellow, orange, purple, brown, black, pink, and white
  • Shapes – Identify six basic shapes: circle, square, triangle, rectangle, oval, and diamond through games and puzzles
  • Alphabet – Recognize some letters of the alphabet, including upper and lower case and beginning phonics
  • Fine Motor Skills – Master cutting with scissors, holding a pencil and crayon correctly, molding with clay/play dough, piecing together puzzles, and tracing inside and outside of a stencil

  • Large Motor Skills – Master running, jumping, hopping on one foot and two feet, climbing, and skipping (Skipping is not always possible until age 5 or 6).
  • Language Arts – To speak and enunciate clearly for his/her age, use “finger plays”, recognize and know uppercase and lowercase letters, recognize own first and last name as well as write them (and even family members and friends in class), know “opposite”, see “likeness” and “difference” in objects, know the meaning of the “est” words (longest, shortest), use manners, and know general and specific body parts
  • Weather/Seasons – Be aware of what we wear, seasonal characteristics of animals, days of the week, and months.
  • Art/Crafts – To work in a group and individually with aid from the teacher using a variety of colors and materials.

Our preschoolers will participate in weekly extracurricular activities, including Spanish and KidFit. These classes are taught by our teachers, who incorporate these things in their daily activities and curriculum.


Your preschooler will also be taking walks and going on field trips to the neighborhood nursing home where they will be performing for their residents. Be sure to watch your child’s classroom door and the bulletin board for details. All children must have signed permission slips to participate in off-campus activities.


As always at Active Imaginations Child Development Center in Louisville, Kentucky, assessments are done twice a year and are gone over in depth with parents during parent/teacher conferences. Feel free to ask to see your child's portfolio at any time.
