    Welcome to Pre-Kindergarten!

    Welcome to Hemingway STEAM School. Our names are Juliana Varela and Dydy Cleven. We are so happy to have your children in our Preschool class this year. 

    Preschool is a very special and exciting time for young children. Students learn important social and emotional skills which gives them a good foundation to help them in their academic learning. By playing with each other, students learn such skills as sharing, taking turns, and respecting others. 

    It is through play that preschoolers feel safe to express themselves as they learn about themselves and about the world around them.

    In addition, our Preschool students learn by having fun in collaborative activities, and engaging in hands-on projects. All these important skills: social, emotional, and academic will help students to be ready for kindergarten.

    I look forward to having a great school year and excited to get to know you and your children throughout the school year.
