During the preschool years, children are working on their socialization skills. Some of the most common areas of growth are how to resolve conflict in a positive manner, how to celebrate differences in each other and in the larger community, and how to verbalize their needs and feelings. At Kids Inc we support this with children's play and build a curriculum that reinforces this growth. Our teachers and support staff take the time to meet the needs of each individual child.
Our Panda class is a mixture of children aged three to five years old. All children must be potty trained and able to dress themselves. This class focuses on socialization and learning through play. While children play, they bring to the classroom experiences from their life. It is those experiences that create a richly diverse environment for learning. The curriculum is designed to support children's development and individual growth. It includes pre-literacy activities, art, math development skills, science exploration, small and large motor skill development, creative expression, music enrichment and frequent field trips. While children are learning, Kids Inc offers a secure and loving environment with an established routine and written daily communication with families.
Our Otter class is a mixture of children that are older fours or five years (in September). This unique setting allows children to learn pre-kindergarten skills. School readiness activities may include pre-reading and writing, counting, number recognition and problem solving, all presented in a fun-filled but purposeful manner. The exploration of early learning continues in areas of dramatic play, science, art and music. Emphasis is placed on cooperative play as children practice their understanding of socially appropriate behavior. The small class size allows for more flexibility and individual learning.
