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.

"We could not be happier with the quality care that these teachers provide to our daughter. She is so happy when we drop her off and pick her up - we know she loves spending time with them. It makes being a working parent a lot easier to know that such she is in such great, caring hands!"

Houseplants

You Will Need:

A hardy houseplant (ivy, aloe vera, etc.), a small watering can

Directions:

Help your child choose plants to care for and purchase them at a garden center. When you are watering your houseplants, encourage your child can care for her plants, too. 

Talk about how much water the plants need. Have your child measure that amount of water into the watering can. Let your child decide where the plants will get the best amount of sun and fertilize the plant. Say things like, “What do you think the plant food will do to the plant?”; “What does food do to you?”; “What would happen to your plant if you didn’t feed or water it?”; “Do you think your plant looks any greener?” 

Don’t forget to have your child dust the leaves when needed and say things like “Can your plant get air with dust on it?” and “What happens to you if you can’t breathe?”

Tip:

Make sure to use nonpoisonous plants. Some common plants - poinsettias and philodendrons - are mildly poisonous. Other plants - shamrock and dieffenbachia - are highly poisonous.
