Pre-Kindergarten Philosophy

The Lafourche Parish Public School System Pre-Kindergarten Program is based on the underlying belief that young children learn through age appropriate play.  Through this age appropriate play, children develop language, math, science, social, art and technology skills.  The Pre-Kindergarten Program supports a safe classroom environment where students can develop trust in adults.  The program recognizes that each child is unique and learns and develops in his/her own way.  You can find more information regarding the Pre-K Program in the resources files.
