“Center” — Centers are designed to work on multiple skills such as reading, math and science, social studies, music and art. Children receive kindergarten simulated instruction in small group settings that focus on the materials they will be learning when they enter school. Through detailed lessons and consistent repetition, our teachers engage your child in age appropriate activities.
“Circle Time” — Circle time builds practical skills by asking children to:
spell and recognize their names
say/spell other children’s names
point out colors
identify letters and their sounds
talk about the seasons, time, weather and holidays
recognize the day of the month, day of the week, what date tomorrow is, what day of the week tomorrow is
These exercises build language and comprehension skills. Through these discussion they also practice good social skills, listening to others, raising their hand to speak, being respectful of the person speaking, etc. These are important skills to develop before entering elementary school. Our toddler classrooms work on a variation of circle time. This circle time develops all the same skills, just at their age level.
