Our Kindergarten Prep Program

Ensuring children are prepared to succeed in school and life.

Kindergarten Prep children are physically and cognitively able to take on more challenges while still engaging in important foundational learning like friendship building and developing a strong self-concept. Our READY for SCHOOL program helps your child reach his or her greatest potential in all areas including beginning reading and writing skills, math and science concepts, large and small muscle skills, and social and emotional development.

Learning at Home

Face Collages

You Will Need:

Magazines or photos, scissors, glue sticks or glue and brushes


With your child find and cut faces out of magazine. Talk about and respond to your child reaction to some of the faces. Ask what they might be thinking. Expand upon their recognition of physical differences. Help your child notice skin tones, glasses, hair attributes, etc.


It's the process, not the product that is important. Children might cut up the pictures into small pieces; use too much or not enough glue, etc. It is about learning by experimentation!
