Early Childhood Program- DRC
The Early Childhood Program at Radford consists of the Developmental Readiness Class (DRC) for three-year-old children, Pre-Kindergarten for the four-year-olds, and Kindergarten for the five-year-olds. The curriculum for these children is based upon the philosophy supported by current brain research, which states that the skills required to become good readers, writers, and learners are only acquired if a young child has a sound neurological foundation. This ensures that each child will have the opportunity to achieve full potential as he/ she advances through the grades in Radford’s challenging academic setting.
Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten Courses
Full-day pre-kindergarten and kindergarten programs are built upon the philosophy that children learn by doing. A normal day is full of varied activities that prepare children for the challenging elementary school curriculum.
