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.

"From the moment we drop off our child to the moment we pick her up we are comforted by the care, education and love you provide to her on a daily basis. With each day she is brighter, happier and a more well-rounded child."

Our Curriculum Components

The building blocks to balanced education.

  • Language Works Connecting spoken words to written words, enjoying books independently, retelling stories, writing letters and numbers, indentifying some words on sight.
  • Math Counts Beginning to use standard measurements, beginning addition.
  • Science Rocks Exploring the world in more depth using tools such as magnifying glasses and microscopes, recording observations in science journals.
  • ArtSmart Studying great artists, engaging in collage and three-dimensional artwork, exploring dance, music, and dramatic arts

Learning at Home

Drums

You Will Need:

Empty oatmeal boxes or cans of different sizes

Directions:

Tap a rhythm on the box with your hands. Give a box to your child and he will probably copy you. See if your child can repeat a simple beat.

Tip:

Notice and comment on the difference in sound between sizes of boxes and/or cans. Make loud and soft sounds. “How did you make that so loud? Did you hit it hard or soft?”
