Our Kindergarten Program

Comprehensive curriculum preparing children for school success

Our center develops expectations and practices in concert with our state curriculum standards so children make an easy transition into the local school system. At the same time, our curriculum builds off the child’s knowledge base and skills, learning style, and interests. There is a clear emphasis on the development of strong language, math, and science skills. Important “school skills” of listening carefully, following through on a sequence of tasks, and working cooperatively are reinforced.

What Parents are Saying

Our greatest advocates are also our closest friends.

"Thank you all for what you do with my child. I am amazed at how much he has developed and learned. Being a working mom is such a hard thing sometimes but it makes it so much easier when you know your child is being loved and nurtured by truly caring individuals. Thanks for being his mom away from mom."

Our Curriculum Components

The building blocks to balanced education.

Learning at Home

Thank You Cards

You Will Need:

Paper or cards, pens, paper to collage etc.

Directions:

Have children participate as much as they are able in sending thank you cards. They may glue paper on the cover, draw a picture, or make a few scribbles. It's the thought and the effort that are important. “We need to send Grandma a card to thank her for your birthday present. What do you want to tell her about it? What do you enjoy/like about the present? Can you draw a picture of yourself playing with the present? How did you feel when you opened the package? What can you say that will make her feel that happy?” Older children may want to make their own cards either on the computer or with construction paper.

Tip:

Let your child see you writing thank you cards also. Model behavior you want to see from your child.
