Although my son has not yet begun Pre-K4 at Pinehurst, I am pleased with the course outline. It consists of learning to read simple words (i.e., mat, pat, cat) and doing basic addition (i.e., 1+1, 2+1, 3+1). Initially, I planned to place my child in public Pre-K, but was advised by some of my colleagues who are teachers within the public school system, that public Pre-K standards do not really allow worksheets that teach reading and mathematical skills. For the past 2 years, I have been diligently working with my son at home teaching and reinforcing reading and math skills. I could not allow him to be placed in a learning institution that soley focuses on social skills, and not reinforcing what I have already taught.
