There’s a real need for full-day Kindergarten in our community and The Kiddie Corral can provide a solution for families requiring this option with our Kindergarten Wrap-Around Program.
Enrolled children will participate in our Kindergarten class before or after their Kindergarten session in the public school. In addition to traditional Kindergarten throughout the day the children will have the opportunity for a.m. or p.m. snack, lunch and outdoor play. Busing may be provided by our local school district. Please see the Director for details.
Kindergarten is a big step for children and their families!
Our Kindergarten program provides academic and social experiences to create good citizens and well -rounded students. The Kindergarten curriculum is chosen to align with our local district while continuing with our philosophy of creating an environment that is hands-on and developmentally appropriate.
Through the use of traditional learning centers*, science experiments, smartboard technology and a literacy /listening station your childred will acquire all the skills necessary to expand their knowledge of the world around them. Children will learn to function in a classroom setting, follow class rules and become responsible for their belongings – all vital for future success. Through positive direction and modeling, our teachers will help their class achieve these goals. The children enjoy learning how to write through the use of our Handwriting Without Tears program which focuses on multi medias to encourage fine motor skills and letter formation. Learning centers are utilized to introduce new concepts in a fun, hands-on approach.
*These centers include Math/Manipulative, Nature & Science, Art Expression, Technology, Literacy, Engineering/Blocks and Dramatic Play. Using learning centers to give children the hands-on experiences and play opportunities they need is important and creates a child based, well rounded curriculum. Respect for self and others is emphasized throughout the center through our Character Education program.
