Private Pre-Kindergarten

Here, learning is driven by student development and imagination.

Continuing to nurture your preschooler's mind, the Kids 'R' Kids Private Pre-Kindergarten program is filled with enjoyable activities for any child. This is the next stop on your child's way toward elementary learning.

Our program meets and exceeds national standards, has literature-based units, and addresses all learning styles. The program's goal is to help each child succeed to his fullest potential, which is why each unit of study was developed with the learner in mind.

Pre-Kindergarten activities include large and small hands-on groups, independent activities, and realistic application. The learning stations and curriculum were designed to build children's comprehension. Through independent and cooperative learning strategies, children are able to apply thought, imagination, and creativity into their educational experiences.

This program is broken down into three categories: academic introductions, individual and group activities, and station opportunities. The academic introductions are group learning sessions where students are introduced to subject matter. Our individual and group activities help students apply what they have learned and focus on building individual comprehension. Pre-Kindergarten station opportunities provide the following:

Alphabet Station helps children build their language skills.
Art Station presents free-choice art experiences that develop skills and imagination.
Construction Station develops spatial awareness through stacking, sorting, building, and recreating.
Dramatic Play Station encourages individual and group role play activities with realistic and imaginary props.
Number Station allows children apply math skills with a variety of materials and strategies.
Reading Station promotes independent reading and a love of books.
Science/Sensory Station allows children to experiment with materials.
Writing Station encourages beginning letter formation through a variety of materials and activities.

Children continue to learn about themselves and the environment around them in an atmosphere permeated with the Kids 'R' Kids philosophy of “Hug First, Then Teach.” Teachers encourage and praise children for their accomplishments, building their self-esteem and creating memorable learning experiences with them.
