In compliance with WV State Board of Education Policy 2525, Pleasants County Collaborative Pre-K offers a free and appropriate public preschool program for all children turning four years of age prior to July 1st and eligible three-year-olds with special needs. In collaboration with Appalachian Council Head Start, Pleasants County Schools offers a child-centered, developmentally appropriate pre-k program at both Belmont Elementary School and St. Marys Elementary School. Pre-k students attend four days per week, Monday through Thursday, from 8:30AM-3:30PM. Transportation is provided and breakfast and lunch are available at the school.
Our program is designed to foster independence, self-esteem, social skills, and academic foundations that will serve to support healthy growth and development for a lifetime. Using the Early Learning Standards Framework as our guide, we concentrate on a play-based model. Our goal is to facilitate the development of the whole child (social, cognitive, adaptive, motor and language skills.) In addition, we also explore math, science, pre-reading and writing, social studies and art concepts.
