Tot Lot Summer Program is geared for kids who are entering kindergarten in the fall of 2019. There are many opportunities for art, movement, songs, stories, and play. The program will also address important academic components that your child will experience the first quarter of school: reading strategies, letter recognition, letter sounds, number recognition, handwriting practice, journal writing, sitting at a table to do short spurts of independent work, and waiting your turn to share in a group setting.
Being an enthusiastic learner is one of the greatest predictors of academic success. Our Kindergarten program has been designed to specifically so that your child can investigate, explore, ask questions and take initiative for learning about the world.
Our warm and educationally focused classrooms will allow him to persist in hands-on math, science and social studies activities that interest him/her and arouse their natural curiosity. Their self-confidence will soar as he/she is given ample opportunities to make decisions about what materials to use and when to use them. Our teachers will be there to guide, support and challenge them, answer their questions and nurture their love for learning.
Your child is approaching an exciting milestone and the adventure of a lifetime! Our fun and challenging Pre-Kindergarten program is designed specifically to promote his readiness for learning, assurance in social situations, and a mastery of many fine and gross motor skills; all of which will benefit him when he/she moves into the school arena. Our skilled and nurturing teachers will offer a variety of both independent and cooperative learning opportunities as well as provide for generous outdoor playtime to ensure his future academic success.
