About Laurel Mountain Elem Pre-K
Laurel Mountain Elem Pre-K is a public pre-kindergarten program serving the parents and families of Austin. As a pre-k, Laurel Mountain Elem Pre-K provides a structured, stable learning environment that replicates the best of the formal school years ahead and is hosted on the same campus where they may even be able to attend kindergarten once they graduate pre-k. Pre-k provides more resources and opportunities for students to explore the world around them, as well as a bevy of peers and socialization opportunities. The benefit of a full-time schedule for children, too, can be dramatic! In a structured, repeated learning environment, students will play with the same peers, get familiar with the same staff and experience something new every day. The full-time schedule at Laurel Mountain Elem Pre-K offers families these things for their children in an environment that’ll soon become a real community. Parents get the advantages of long blocks of time to work while students will grow their social, behavioral and cognitive skills. Additionally, Laurel Mountain Elem Pre-K takes a nature-focused educational approach that both teaches the value and appreciation of the outdoors alongside stimulating the joy and wonder that comes with playing outside. Students at Laurel Mountain Elem Pre-K will get time outside to explore, play, and connect with the natural world, all in a supervised space that encourages appropriate risk-taking and hands-on self-expression. Connecting with the natural world at an early age can increase student well-being, confidence, and deepen an appreciation for those things external to themselves.
