Our Kindergarten Enrichment Program is a full day opportunity for your child to develop the skills to confidently enter kindergarten. The program offers a developmental approach to encourage individual growth. There is a strong emphasis on phonics together with supplemental literature. Reading and writing readiness skills are developed along with supportive encouragement for beginner readers. Letter recognition and sounds are also stressed. Other opportunities for language development are provided by offering experiences that develop good listening and speaking skills.
Emphasis is also placed on developing math, science and computer skills. In math a hands on approach using manipulatives allows your child to explore patterning, sorting, classifying, comparing, number concepts and geometry. Science activities are incorporated into weekly themes providing the children with experiences to their personal world. Computer knowledge is encouraged using Apple computers and a variety of software offering both individual and guided experiences.
Activities encourage both gross and fine motor skills. Large motor skill development is encouraged by action games, directed exercises, and outdoor play. Small muscle development is enhanced through cutting, pasting, tracing, using puzzles and other manipulatives. Creativity is stimulated by making art projects by using various art supplies.
The children are given unlimited opportunities to develop and demonstrate positive social skills through interaction with other students. Free play time stimulates student interactions with guidance from our teaching professionals.
