V.P.K. & Preschool @ Dalton Learning Center

Welcome to VPK


Parents who make the choice to send their children to a preschool should be comforted in knowing that this institution provides opportunities for children to learn in ways that are interesting to them. Well structured preschools help children develop a hunger for learning that will motivate their progression throughout their academic careers.

Here are some reasons to consider sending your child to preschool:
1) Preschool helps children develop social skills as well as self- regulatory skills.
2) Preschool teaches children structure.
3) Preschool teachers children how to be learners, boosting pre-literacy skills and building a foundation for math.
4) Preschool nurtures a child’s creativity and healthy curiosity.
5) Preschool teaches children how to care for themselves and for others.
Now here are some reason to consider sending your child to
1) Dalton is intentional about fostering higher levels of academic growth in each of our students.
2) Dalton is committed to training students to perform at their best, providing an on-site tutor to support differentiated learning.
3) Dalton regularly challenges itself as an institution to rise to a higher standard of quality performance.
4) Dalton challenges its students to apply Biblical principles to everyday situations.
5) Dalton actively seeks to mold compassionate characters according to the standards set by the Almighty God.

When choosing childcare for your little one, it’s plain to see that Dalton is the place to be.

The Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten program is structured to prepare your 4-years-old for Kindergarten. Dalton takes that preparation just a step further: by establishing the VPK Club, we have created opportunities for our VPK students to actually experience Kindergarten for themselves. Through this program, students will have a chance to visit our Kindergarten classes at the Academy building each month. This will help to promote confidence in student capabilities as our VPK-ers will be learning alongside them, practicing and participating in school activities and events. The VPK Club program will also soothe inner fears concerning the transitioning from the preschool to the “Big School.” This also helps to foster relationships between parents and the Academy administration which is so important for parents considering continuing on with Dalton after Preschool.
