Our "Little Bears" room is a place of caring and sharing. Our goal is to teach children,ages 2 1/2-3, of
all backgrounds and nationalities to get along with one another. We learn new things in fun and interactive ways to build foundations for future learning. We introduce the concept of holding a pencil and other fine motor skills during the second half of the year.
Our "Sunshine" room is where set a foundation for learning in the areas of language, math, and science. We assist these 3 & blossoming 4 year olds in a variety of activities. Staff assist students with their emerging fine motor skills,including using scissors,coloring with crayons and tracing. Children also learn to identify the alphabet, their names and numbers 1-30. Our goal is to instill confidence and a love for learning in each child.
Our "Church Mice" room works to build a community where each 4 & emerging 5 year old can develop the skills they need for a successful transition to kindergarten. This takes place in a caring atmosphere where showing love and respect for each other is a daily practice. We use a balanced approach of projects, practice and play to teach reading readiness, early math concepts,pre-writing and simple writing skills. The students also explore the world of science and develop social skills.
Our "Caterpillar" room is full day kindergarten. Here we focus on preparing children for first grade. A solid foundation in reading and writing is established using a phonics-based program which emphasizes hands on activities. Mathematical concepts are explored using manipulatives and games and thematic social studies and science units round out the day. Our activities take place in an environment which fosters independence, curiosity and creativity. An advanced pre-k option is available for those that are ready to meet the challenges of Kindergarten but do not make the Oct.1st birthday cut-off date to qualify.They are exposed to the Kindergarten curriculum at their own pace.
