This program centralizes in the education of the Five Domains of early childhood development: Social/Emotional, Language, Cognitive, Physical and Approaches to Learning.
Your 2.5-year-old will experience stimulating activities, group interaction where language development is central to guiding the student to share observations, explorations and inquiries, and the chance to be inquisitive as he/she explores new and exciting things. Social exchange and a nurturing, safe, exploratory environment take the lead in the Little Buds classroom.
Your 3 year old will learn about him/herself and the environment which is critical to this developmental stage. This program grows with your child by introducing key steps that will build socialization skills and emotional maturity, as well as, literacy and daily activities relating to the lesson plans.Furthermore, your little one will be energized by the exciting music, movement and creative projects that we use to enhance their creativity.
Your 4 year old will be introduced to our robust literacy based approach to teaching. Your son or daughter will be exposed to our letter's of the week, free hand writing, songs, rhymes and stories. Art, music, dramatic play and social interaction will help your child to build self-esteem.
An emphasis in sound manipulation called phonemic awareness prepares our students for the transitions into decoding and pre-reading skills. Students experience whole group learning as well as small group and center based experiences as a precursor to the Kindergarten classroom structure. Our school uses the Envisions Math curriculum as it is a great preparatory tool for the Singapore Math Curriculum. Students also engage in Science and Social Studies projects that expose them to non-fiction reading modalities.
Your 5 year old will learn phonics and math in a more structured teaching format. Step by step your child will master the foundational skills needed to excel in primary school. He or she will become more independent and have well developed socialization skills. We follow the Common Core Standards in order to align the students to the expectations they will meet in the first grade.
Your child will experience daily active play in our Summer Fit Camp which features the following Core "Seeds" of Development:
1. LISTENING SKILLS - Following instructions!
2. TEAMWORK - Working together!
3. SPORTSMANSHIP - Doing your best makes you a Winner!
The Core Seeds will challenge your child to be leaders, boost confidence, and allow for problem solving among their peers. They will also take part in weekly Nutrition Talks on the best food sources for their growth and development and discuss whatever their heart wishes to talk about during our Morning Circle. Last but not least: your child will run, jump, kick, hoola hoop, potato sack race, and navigate through obstacle courses (just to name a few)!
Your child will also experience our enrichment programs in the afternoon through science with no-cook cooking activities and arts and crafts.
