5 YEAR OLDS

The pre-kindergarten program is a transition program for children who turn 5 before November 1st. Some children are old enough for kindergarten, but are not socially or emotionally ready. Other children just miss the kindergarten cut-off date. The program provides a nurturing atmosphere. Socialization is an important component, with heavy emphasis on developing positive self-esteem. The class celebrates the whole child-emotionally, socially, intellectually, and physically. This class supports each child's learning style, intelligence, and interests. Children are prepared for kindergarten in the area of receptive and expressive language, social and emotional skills,problem solving, and group participation. The fives program implements a creative curriculum that is challenging and just plain fun. The class may "dive into the living seas", "blast off into space" or venture off on an "African Safari". Drawing class is a weekly component. Children will shine and discover the glory within themselves.
