Kickstart to Kindergarten Program

KickStart to kindergarten enriches preschoolers in rigorous, yet fun pre-academic skills and prepares our 4 and 5 year olds for kindergarten!  The program has a built-in curriculum which focuses on readiness and writing, language and literacy, and numbers and math. In addition, KickStart to Kindergarten meets all the early childhood developmental state standards. Our curriculum fosters letter recognition and development, exposes our students to  rich literature, fostering a love of reading and vocabulary, and teaches students  counting, patterning, sequencing, problem-solving, and even pre-geometry skills! KickStart to Kindergarten promotes hands-on learning and will allow students time to explore with real objects/manipulatives and test their ideas, so skills become more meaningful. In addition to a pre-academic curriculum, preschoolers will be working on hands-on exploration, building friendships, developing motor skills, and establishing classroom routines!
