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.

"You impressed me on my first visit and I continue to appreciate your wisdom supporting so many young lives at the center. You know your employees and the children well enough to form solutions that support each family. Thank you."

Fractions

You Will Need:

Ingenuity

Directions:

Notice and discuss the fractions in your child's world! When eating pizza or a pie, count the pieces of an eight piece pie, 1/8, 2/8, etc. Help your child cut their sandwich in half, fourths, thirds. Discuss with your child what part of the family they are: if you are one of six members of a family, you are 1/6th of the family. Let your child divide the dessert among your family members, i.e. if we have 5 brownies and four people, each person gets 1 and 1/4 of a brownie. Include your child in baking that asks for measurements that require fractions. Some books to read: "The Door Bell Rang" by Pat Hutchinson, "Eating Fractions" by Bruce McMillan, and the "Half Birthday Party" by Charlette Pomeranz.

Tip:

If your child does not show an interest in fractions, wait until another time.
