Children enrolled in our four year old "Kinder Prep" program will turn four on or before September 1st of the current school year. This program focuses more intensely on Kindergarten readiness while providing developmentally appropriate experiences in all domains: cognitive, social, emotional, physical and spiritual. The curriculum scaffolds the curriculum introduced within our two and three year old programs and is more academic in nature. Characteristics of letters and their phonemes, numbers and math concepts, science, art, literature, and writing will be introduced and reinforced. Along with academic development, a great emphasis is still placed on developing each child’s social and emotional growth, including the ability to become critical thinkers, problem solvers, as well as respectful and productive citizens within the school and classroom community. This program maintains a maximum class size of 12 students and a student/teacher ratio of 6:1. Class hours are 9:00 am - 12Noon.
