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.

"Dear Mrs. Schnecky, we have loved getting to know you during your teaching time in the Whales room. You always great us with a friendly Good Morning and that makes me feel at ease when I leave for work after dropping Dean off. He truly loves his time in class and I owe that to you and your teaching."

Learning at Home

What’s That Sound?

You Will Need:

Common household items that can be used to make sounds: a ball, pencil, glass, etc.

Directions:

Use an object to make a sound, such as bouncing a ball, tapping a pencil on a glass, running water, or clicking your fingers. Say to your child “Can you guess what is making that sound? Is it a ball? Yes, ball. Do you want to hear it again? That’s a ball bouncing.” As your child gets older, have them tell you what the sound is.

Tip:

This activity can be done anywhere, anytime. If your child is getting restless in the car, this activity may soothe them. New sensations attract baby’s attention. Making new noises stimulate curiosity and language development; It is through early conversations that their language capacity grows.
