The Kindergarten Prep Program is an immersive and dynamic program designed to equip young learners with the necessary skills, knowledge, and confidence to embark on their educational journey. This program, tailored specifically for rising kindergarten and 1st graders, serves as a "sneak peek" into the new school year, offering a stimulating and nurturing environment to foster your child's development. With a focus on enhancing cognitive, emotional, and social skills, as well as reading and math foundations, this program is an excellent opportunity for children to explore, learn, and grow before entering the structured academic setting of kindergarten, 1st grade, and beyond.
The Kindergarten Prep Program features a carefully crafted curriculum that strikes a balance between structured learning and play-based exploration. Drawing inspiration from proven early childhood education practices as well as the Georgia Standards of Excellence, the program covers various domains of development to prepare children for a successful transition to kindergarten.
Language and Literacy: Children engage in activities that promote pre-reading skills, including letter recognition, phonics, and vocabulary building. Storytelling sessions, interactive reading experiences, and hands-on writing exercises lay a solid foundation for language development.
Mathematics and Problem-Solving: Through games, puzzles, and manipulatives, young learners develop number sense, basic mathematical concepts, and problem-solving skills. Counting, sorting, pattern recognition, and basic addition and subtraction activities enhance their logical reasoning abilities.
Social and Emotional Development: Through cooperative play, team-building activities, and social interactions, children develop essential social skills such as sharing, empathy, conflict resolution, and communication. They learn to work collaboratively, respect differences, and develop a positive self-image.
