Curriculum: Core Knowledge Preschool Sequence


"Those children who arrive at school lacking relevant experience and vocabulary - they see not, neither do they understand.  They fall further and further behind.  A good, academically focused preschool program can overcome the egregious academic differences that currrently develop between social classes in American schools."
E.D. Hirsch
