The format and structure of a day in kindergarten is introduced, as we help children to develop critical skills for elementary school success. Featuring award-winning and nationally recognized early education curricula and classrooms, this program offers kindergarten-level lessons in reading, writing, and math.
This classroom provides young 5-year-olds and older 4-year-olds with a strong focus on:
Six focused learning areas are designed to further skill development and to ensure children are prepared to enter a kindergarten classroom environment.
Experimenting with different roles and materials while engaging in pretend play and using their imaginations helps children explore social-emotional skills.
Constructing and creating using a variety of different materials helps children to learn about how things work and fit together.
With different art techniques, color concepts, and cooperation, children are able to be creative, solve problems, and develop their self-expression.
Experimentation and exploration with science and math concepts enable children to challenge their investigative abilities and build critical-thinking skills.
Written communication is developed, as children develop letter and word recognition and formation, breaking down words into sounds, and collecting sounds to make words.
Children develop significant literacy skills, including story reasoning, print awareness, and word recognition, as they engage with books.
With learning experiences in science, social studies, the arts, literacy, and math, Junior Kindergarten provides comprehensive preparation for kindergarten, plus nationally recognized and award-winning, curricula, such as:
Literacy by Design™: The art of active literacy is used to inspire students, ensuring clear reciprocity between reading and writing. This curriculum correlates to state standards and is delivered through independent learning activities, small-group reading instruction, and whole class experiences.
My Math: This program uses research-based strategies and engages children through a focus on real-world applications, to challenge and inspire children toward confidence in their own mathematical skills. Children develop conceptual understanding, procedural skill, and fluency, enabling them to steadily grow their math confidence.
Handwriting Without Tears®: To make handwriting an easy, automatic skill for all students, this program—developed by experienced occupational therapists—teaches children how to form letters, and has been proven to improve their letter size, spacing, and overall legibility.
In Junior Kindergarten, children’s development is tracked across five developmental scales as they build their skills for elementary school.
Naming all letters in the alphabet, both upper- and lowercase; assembling sounds in order; reading and writing short words; engaging in early reading, writing, vocabulary, and communication.
Understanding numbers, patterns, sorting and ordering, and geometry; using numbers to add, subtract, measure, and graph.
Desired Outcome: Measuring: Uses non-standard units (e.g., paper clips) to measure length.
Develop an understanding of the natural and physical world; observing, describing, predicting, and gathering data.
Milestone: Use tools to measure and make comparisons.
Desired Outcome: The students can use tools to compare and describe the weights of various objects.
Compromising in a situation of conflict; asking questions to learn about topics presented in their classroom.
Everyone experiences conflict on a regular basis, which can lead to anxiety and fear, both in children and in adults.
Conflict can be an excellent source for learning, if facilitated properly, and in a peaceful way.
Using fine and gross motor skills to navigate the classroom environment, as well as gaining an understanding of health and nutrition.
