Our Kindergarten Prep Program

Ensuring children are prepared to succeed in school and life.

Our Kindergarten Prep Program empowers 4-5-year-old children to take on new academic challenges and build confidence in this critical year prior to kindergarten.  Teachers provide multiple and diverse learning activities to ensure children thrive in all areas of development. Children’s journal writing provides a special place for them to document and collect their personal and group experiences, thoughts and feelings. Foundation skills such as friendship building and positive self image that will be crucial for success in school and in life are central to children’s daily learning. Learning at Home activities are sent home weekly to enhance the skills or concepts focused on at school. Experiences in core pre-academic areas including literacy, mathematical reasoning, and STEM education ensuring that children will be successful in kindergarten and beyond. 

Our teachers stimulates each child’s innate curiosity and exploratory nature to prepare children for lifelong learning and the skills needed to succeed in school and life.

The Kindergarten Prep program will operate similar to a "school year" to prepare them for the next step in their learning journey. Our program will have a celebration on the First Day of Kindergarten Prep and will end the year with Kindergarten Prep Graduation Celebration! The summer before school starts we offer an educational and exciting Summer Camp Program that is an extension to their school year and allows them to spend a little more time polishing their Kindergarten readiness skills! Also here at Bright Horizons at Harrison Park we offer various enrichments for our Kindergarten Prep program including Music with Uncle John , STEM lab, Movement Matters curriculum and Spanish classes with Ms. Gloria. 

Our Kindergarten Prep program also offers several opportunities for parent involvement as Bright Horizons places a high emphasis on parent partnerships with a various curriculum events such as Science Rocks Science Fair, Curriculum Night, and more where parents can really learn about our curriculum and intermingle with other families here at Harrison Park.

Marbleized Gift Wrap

You Will Need:

Paper (white, freezer, butcher, or white drawing), plastic wrap, several colors of tempera paint, newspapers or vinyl tablecloth to cover work surface, trash can, smock or old shirt to protect your clothes

Directions:

Cover work surface. Have your child drip paint onto the paper, letting several colors touch. Place plastic wrap over the paint. Then have your child smooth the paper, creating designs with his or her fingers. Remove plastic wrap and allow paper to dry completely before you use as gift wrap.

Tip:

Make the paint thin to prevent clumping or flaking. You may want to tape the paper to the table to keep it from moving when your child rubs the paint around. Have the trash can handy to toss the plastic wrap once you’re done.
