SENIOR KINDERGARTEN (SK) 5 – 6 years old

What makes kindergarten fun? What makes a child want to learn? It is a graduate program like ours. Our safe and enriching program focuses on all aspects of creative learning. Hands on activities encompass exciting monthly themes.
The graduates rotate to a variety of learning centers which offer items to help stimulate young imaginative minds. Literacy is introduced with the letter of the week, simple short paragraph writing and circle time readings.
SK students also learn the seasons, temperature and how to read time. Patterns, graphing, simple math addition and subtraction and science activities are included in the weekly program.
Music, movement, and playground times are a favorite part of each day. The children’s art is proudly displayed around the room. Fine motor skills are used weekly as they participate in themed in-class projects. Their individuality is appreciated and their achievements are applauded.
Positive discipline methods are used so the children do not feel singled out or embarrassed. Preparing these young minds for kindergarten is a primary goal of the teachers as they encourage verbal skills, teach self-help skills and promote self assurance.
At the end of the school year, our SK students will graduate from their kindergarten program and move on to grade 1.
