Pre-School (Pre-K) This is the entry point of the curriculum at GSA. The Pre-K student starts to study, acquire skills, and form attitudes from this level and then move on through the school. The individuality and abilities of the students are the guiding principles. Age-appropriate materials and tasks are provided in a caring and stimulating environment. Pre-K students are guided at their pace to acquire mastery mostly (at their level) in these major areas:
Classrooms are equipped with activity centers that help to stimulate the students and allow them to explore.
The Pre-K classes strive to educate the “whole” child. Children learn by doing. Parents, teachers, developmental psychologists, and others who work with young children have always known this.
Pre K-3 and Pre K-4
GSA purchased Frog Street Curriculum in 2018. Frog Street uses research-based principles of learning to deliver a comprehensive, sequential, integrated system of instructions organized into nine themes aligned to current Florida State Standards. Additionally, Frog Street incorporates the work of Dr. Becky Bailey (Conscious Discipline) to provide daily routines that develop key social skills and emotional control.
