Approach & Curriculum
Located in San Francisco's Miraloma Park, Treehouse Pre-K is a home-based pre-kindergarten program founded in 2000. Our developmental approach to education provides opportunities for child-centered, hands-on learning and socialization in an intimate setting. Art, music, language, storytelling, role-play, and physical activity are all mainstays of the program. The curriculum is thematic (2-3 themes per month) and rich in experimental learning.
Children are grouped by age and/or individual ability to participate in structured activities designed to promote interest and learning in the following areas:
Pre-Reading: Phonics, letter and word sounds through stories, alphabet journals and letter of the week, and writing.
Math & Science: Math concepts through activities involving counting, sorting, patterns, and measuring. Hands-on science activities and experiments.
Social & Emotional Development: Communicating and working cooperatively in small and large groups, practicing listening skills, and learning to value self and each other through cooperation-based activities.
Children should be at least 3 1/2 years old when entering the program and plan to continue until they transition to kindergarten.
Treehouse Pre-K provides healthy morning and afternoon snacks including organic fruit from our CSA. Children bring lunches from home which can include food to be heated up.
