Curriculum

Our PreK school readiness program is perfect for children preparing to enter a traditional school setting. The curriculum is designed to facilitate classroom readiness for children. It integrates multi- sensory thematic instructions that follow four approaches: Curiosity, Persistence, Creativity and Initiative. It is a structured program and a daily schedule is followed to make sure children get used to following a certain routine so that their transition to kindergarten is seamless.

The program is divided into “Macaws" (18mos-3yrs) and “Lemurs" (3-4yrs) for learning and developmental goals. Children do age appropriate activities. Each learning objectives for the groups are differentiated to meet age appropriate skill sets and academic goals. Each lesson is formulated to introduce and reinforce classroom readiness skills. We also incorporate daily STEAM based activities that include literacy, math, science and global awareness.

Program is divided into 3 semesters - Fall, Winter & Spring. Full school year commitment is required to maintain same class group and  achieve best result for your child
