Preschool & Pre-K

Our Mission, Vision, and Values

The Little Leaders mission is to provide the best early educational experience to as many students possible in a moral and wholesome environment. Using American Leadership Academy Coastal's R.A.I.S.E. values as part of the learning experience, we're able to help students build essential life and leadership skills.

Our Curriculum

We help our preschools gain and nurture their motor skills, social skills, and sensory skills though a variety of activities. The structured lessons we have also teach students how to apply and read numbers and letters.
Our pre-K Little Leaders curriculum is designed to teach students a wide variety of academic and social skills.  Aligned with North Carolina Early Learning Standards, we address each part of a child's development. We utilize  American Leadership Academy's K-12 Core Knowledge Sequence to guide our early literacy and mathematical lessons. Some of the developmental skills we help students build: 

  • Social skills 
  • Emotional skills
  • Linguistics/language skills
  • Literacy 
  • Communication skills 
  • Technology skills and immersion
  • And more!
