THE THINKERS:  KINDERGARTEN: 5 YEARS OLD

​​













GREAT SCHOOL EXPERIENCE STARTS HERE!
Our kindergarten program  is taught in a safe, familiar environment children know and love. This makes learning more fun and effective. Your child will gain independence while getting ready for the transition to school from kindergarten with a more organized environment. Our passionate teachers will partner with you during this special time making their "senior year" of our preschool program the best it can be.  Our kindergarten program has some of the same features as the Academy classes:
  • Small class size
  • Individualized attention
  • A blend of learning and fun designed to make children into lifelong learners
A DAY IN YOUR KINDERGARTNER'S LIFE
Each day your child will explore a variety of cultures, doing simple addition and subtraction, creating simple patterns, singing songs, doing art, and making music.  Project-related learning activities are included in the kindergarten program.  In each project-related learning phase, children are engaged in key competencies that ensure their success in first grade and beyond.  Project-related learning activities also align to higher-level skills from the other developmental domains.  Since most children are visual – kinetic learners, this is perfect for them!  Your child will make writing and math journals, plus work with preprinted, project-specific journals that encourage skill development through writing, drawing and other visual representations such as photographs.

PLAYING IS LEARNING!
Games are added every day to make learning fun!  Your child will have opportunities to write and talk about his or her community, places he or she has visited through journaling activities and during class discussions. In arithmetic two and three dimensional shapes will be discussed as your child explores the different shapes in everyday items.  Outdoor activities involve skills such as surveying, map making, estimating distance and landscaping.  Each day is packed with carefully designed activities structured around the main development areas listed below.
