Parker Core Knowledge (PCK) is known throughout Douglas County as a premier charter school.
Beginning this past fall, PCK expanded to include early childhood by providing preschool and junior kindergarten. The most successful educational systems in the world teach a common body of knowledge in the early grades.They do this because as both research and common sense demonstrate, all of us learn new knowledge by building on what we already know. It is important to begin building foundations of knowledge at an early age because that is when children are most receptive. Parker Core Knowledge is known for excellent test scores (even our middle school students are receiving 100% on their CSAP exams!) and this excellent education begins at the preschool level.
Our mission at PCK Preschool & Junior Kindergarten is simple: preparing students for Kindergarten! An explicit set of skills provides the stepping-stones children need to achieve developmental goals. Early childhood state standards are presented at the goal level through our curriculum. This level of specificity allows teachers to more accurately identify the abilities of individual children and develop experiences and activities that will meet each child’s needs. Each day is filled with exciting discoveries and growth as we lay our student’s early learning foundation.
Great news for future Kindergarteners at PCK~ The PCK Operating Council recently approved the following change to the waiting list policy: All students enrolled in the PCK Junior Kindergarten, who because of their Waiting List position, are unable to secure placement in the PCK Kindergarten program for the next school year will be invited to participate in a lottery drawing to fill the equivalent of one Kindergarten class at PCK.
