Mighty Scholars Preschool Academy uses a combination of play-based centers and Montessori inspired teaching methods. Together, the curriculum forms a nurturing, rich and meaningful opportunity for learning with child-led and teacher-led hands-on intentional activities.
3 Year-Old Class
and Pre-K Kinder-Prep Classes
Students receive small group and one-on-one tutoring at their individual level of skill development, following each child's specialized goal plan – whether that be fine-motor, name recognition, letters/sounds, or practical life skills.
Fine and Gross Motor Skills
Zones of Regulation (self-regulation/emotional regulation)
Choice-based Learning with Centers
Practical Life Skills (care of self/care of the environment)
Pre-K scholars receive one-on-one tutoring time to work on reading and handwriting skills. Pre-reading and reading skill development is taught through a science of reading aligned, systematic guided phonics program.
Parent Involvement with Letter/Sound Home-School Connections
Advanced Guided Phonics
Pre-K scholars who have been individually assessed as ready to begin guided phonics CVC decoding, will continue one-on-one tutoring through the spiraling consecutive units in the guided phonics program. The science of reading aligned, guided phonics curriculum helps scholars develop necessary orthographic mapping skills through: letter-sound associations, phoneme awareness and crucial word study instruction to connect phonemes to the written word. Sight words are integrated throughout the spiraling phonics lessons as irregular high frequency "heart" words and decodable high frequency words, rather than rote sight word memorization. Rote memorization relies on shape, along with typically the first and last letter. This in turn leads to quick guessing of words rather than decoding, causing frustration and confusion later on.
