Our Preschool class is geared to both two and three year olds. This classroom has a max of 17 students with two teachers. This classroom works on the transition into the school setting. The teachers do a great job helping the kids adjust to saying “bye” to mom and dad, following directions, and sitting for circle. This classroom focuses on socialization and gives plenty of time for free interaction among the children. It is wonderful to see the children building strong relationships with their friends in the classroom at such a young age. We also assist with potty training in the preschool class for an additional fee. Academically, this classroom focuses on letter and sound recognition of lower case letters using the “zoo-phonics” curriculum, number recognition up to 10, and writing their first names.
Our Pre-K class is geared toward older three’s and four year olds and builds on many of the skills they learned in the younger classroom. This classroom has max 24 students with three teachers. Before moving to the Pre-K classroom, the child must be potty trained, be able to follow directions, and sit for circle. Our Pre-K classroom is focus on kindergarten readiness and specifically focuses on the skills your child needs when entering kindergarten. This classroom continues to allow for plenty of time for free play interactions as the children’s social skills continue to grow and develop. Academically, we continue to use the “zoo-phonics” curriculum for letter and sound recognition in lower case, as well as upper case letters. We begin writing both lower and upper case letters and begin sounding out small words. We also practice writing both first and last names. We work on number recognition and writing numbers up to 20. This classroom also has a rich science curriculum.
Junior Kindergarten Class
Our Jr-K class opened in fall of 2011. It is geared to our more matured four and five year olds, who may be old enough for kindergarten but are needing another year of preschool. The classroom has a smaller class size, twelve students with a teacher and an aid. This classroom has a very similar curriculum to the pre-k class, with a slightly more academic focus than the younger classroom.
We have several extra classes that are available for the convenience of our currently enrolled families at an additional fee. We have a half hour soccer program called Soccer Shots. In this class, children are exposed to variety of sports skills. We also have a 45 minute dance class offered by Tude’s School of Dance. The children learn basic ballet and jazz, creative movement, and tumbling. All these classes are offered once a week during the school year.
For those children struggling with the English language or just need a little extra help with language development, we offer tutoring classes for $15 for each 20 minute session. Those enrolled in the program get individual time with a teacher who reads stories, sing songs, and plays language games with the kids. These tutoring sessions are offered to give a little extra confidence to those who need it but should not replace speech therapy in the case of a delay.
