MECK Pre-K Information

The Benefits of Pre-K

Decades of research have shown that pre-K makes a difference in the lives of children and their families. The foundation created in a high quality pre-K program prepares children for the demands of life — not just in the short-term as they succeed in school, but also in the long-term as they grow up, become employed, and contribute to the strength of the community.

While not all pre-K programs are the same, high quality ones like MECK Pre-K will help your child develop social, emotional, language and literacy skills that will last a lifetime. In addition, they will learn things like basic letter-sound recognition, number and color recognition, mathematical and scientific thinking, and the joy of learning.

Multiple studies have shown that kids who attend pre-K programs develop math, literacy, language, and communication skills significantly faster than their kindergarten classmates who didn’t attend a pre-K program, sometimes by as much as 176%.

When you enroll your child in a high quality pre-K program, you are laying the foundation for them to learn teamwork, creative thinking, emotional regulation, socialization, kindness, and much more. However, not all pre-K programs are the same. Now, let’s talk about what sets MECK Pre-K apart from the rest.

What Sets MECK Pre-K Apart

Programs like MECK Pre-K are specifically designed to make sure your child gets everything they need to excel in school and prepare them for life. MECK Pre-K offers a safe and secure environment in which your children can learn.

MECK Pre-K uses the Creative Curriculum®, a hands-on, project-based approach to education that incorporates real life experiences into the learning process. MECK Pre-K students spend each day learning, practicing real life skills and expanding their knowledge. Teachers are trained to follow a child’s interests, build on previous knowledge, and provide real world experience based on that knowledge.

Most of all, though, we prioritize giving your child a safe and nourishing environment where they can play, learn, and make friends comfortably while away from home. When you enroll your child in our Lake Norman Pre-K, you can feel confident that they’re in good hands, and they can feel confident in themselves.
