Junior Kindergarten is a readiness class designed for Kindergarten aged children needing time to acclimate to a school environment. The goal of this program is to give the "gift of time" to allow them to prepare for Kindergarten the following year. This program is a hands-on program focused on instilling a love for learning in each child with an emphasis placed on the method of learning rather than the output. The curriculum prepares the children for the exciting challenges that await them in Kindergarten, moving at our own pace and helping each child’s development. Junior Kindergarten encourages the development of a broad set of skills, including gross and fine motor skills, language skills, and listening skills, while at the same time developing a foundation in core subjects. In addition, students are introduced to Reading and Writing Workshops and basic math concepts to help them make a smooth and confident transition to Kindergarten.
