Is your child ready for kindergarten but is still waiting to start? We offer a developmentally appropriate Transitional Kindergarten program to prepare your child confidently for public school. Your child will be introduced to basic kindergarten concepts in a fun and nurturing atmosphere. If your child has completed our Pre-K program or an equivalent program, they would benefit from this class. Class time is spent reviewing the concepts taught in Pre-K and covering approximately the first half of a kindergarten program.
Before they begin to read, it is important for children to hear and distinguish between words, sounds, and syllables in speech.
Writing in class will begin with practicing fine motor control and stroke lines, then develop into letter formation and early writing strategies.
We spend a lot of time reading, extending literary themes into the classroom. The goal is to help our students love to learn through reading.
Children can discover so much through art. Their is no right or wrong answer! It develops their confidence about being an individual and allows for self-expression that early writing cannot always do.
Music helps children learn the sounds and meanings of words. They also develop memory skills. When they dance and manipulate instruments, they are developing fine and gross motor skills. They are invited to express themselves. Music also challenges their minds and bodies to collaborate.
PE does not only promote a healthy lifestyle, it teaches social skills like team work, taking turns, cheering for each other, and good sportsmanship. While challenging themselves physically, pre-kindergarteners can also improve their self-confidence and strengthen friendships.
Math is so much fun! Before understanding symbols, kids need to understand things on a concrete level. They start this process by using manipulatives and concrete objects. After they can think this way they can then understand more abstract concepts.
Children are natural scientists! They are curious, energetic and love to experiment. it is important that they develop this love of exploring the world around them for their future learning. In our class we use a lot of hands-on, indoor and outdoor experiments to learn how to make predictions and observations. Rather than mastering facts, this stage of learning is all about exploring and making observaions.
Through social studies, children gain an understanding of the world around them and their immediate environment.
