Kindergarten Readiness should be a joyful and meaningful experience for young children and families. For children who are preparing for the kindergarten transition — including school visits and play dates — we believe it is important to approach kindergarten readiness with an appreciation for and value in the process itself. The early literacy and numeracy skills, as well as the executive function skills, that we teach and practice with young learners will be leveraged both in the classroom and at home.
Our teachers’ methodologies are informed by scholarly research and best practices about child development and pedagogy. To that end, we leverage our curriculum and instruction expertise to customize and curate a joyful and meaningful kindergarten readiness experience. As early childhood and elementary educators, we value developing the skills necessary for a successful ongoing school experience. These skills include:
- Working memory and mental flexibility
- Developing persistence and stamina
- Increased oral language and vocabulary
- The ability to speak in complete sentences with appropriate detail
- Sequencing and patterning
- Number sense, ordinality and size comparison
- Self regulation and impulse control
Our Leadership Team and teachers work closely with parents and caregivers to help young students prepare for the Kindergarten transition. Our primary goal is to help young children develop age-appropriate skills through structured play and by creating safe learning environments that encourage risk-taking and persistence. A 3 or 4 year old’s first experience with school should kindle a love for lifelong learning. Therefore, it’s our mission to help each student reach his or her full potential by becoming a confident, successful, and lifelong learner. With preschool enrichment and kindergarten readiness, we especially believe that slow and steady wins the race. The Kindergarten admissions process is an opportunity for meaningful learning.
