Our Mission

Wilkes County Schools Pre-K program seeks to prepare children for school success by providing high-quality early childhood education that is based on the research of child development.

The Wilkes County Pre-K program is based on a foundation that will:  
  • provide an environment that is child-centered and that encourages learning through discovery and exploration;
  • recognize that children differ in rates of development, backgrounds, and experiences;
  • establish a partnership between parents and school staff that supports children throughout the total school experience;
  • allow children to learn fundamental skills through children's own experiences, manipulatives, and other concrete materials;
  • respect play for its value as an appropriate learning medium for children;
  • provide activities and lessons designed to strengthen each child's ability to cope in an ever-changing world;
  • be based on research that indicates how young children develop and learn best.
