Junior Kindergarten

Kids ‘R’ Kids Clayton has excelled in creating a specialized Junior Kindergarten environment which focuses on an excellent academic foundation. We have invested much thought and careful planning in developing this exclusive program. The Kids R Kids Clayton Junior Kindergarten Program’s academic base is our ‘Fast Track’ curriculum.  This curriculum helps prepare your child for success in our exclusive & private Kindergarten Program.  Fast Track curiculum meets and exceeds the state’s objectives for public Kindergarten.

We are also very excited to announce the addition of the Hatch Inc.. TeachSmart® Learning System to this classroom.

  • Provides an interactive, hands-on technology tool which enables early childhood teachers to plan for playful and purposeful activities for children.
  • This tool offers strategies and activities that reflect the latest scientific research for pre-literacy and mathematics concept acquisition in young children. We have added these systems to our Kindergarten, Jr. Kindergarten, and Pre-K classrooms as of September 2010.
  • Additionally, Kids R Kids International has formed a partnership with Hatch Inc. to integrate activities from Kids R Kids` AdvancED accredited programs into the software that drives the TeachSmart® Learning Systems.

Action Reading Phonics
ACTION READING is a phonics instruction program that teaches reading for accuracy, meaning, and comprehension.  This exciting program is full of fun, songs, art, and drama.  Use of this program creates a stimulating classroom excitement that is as much fun for the teacher as it is for the students.   The Action Reading method incorporates the following: auditory, visual, and kinesthetic skills.  Words, sentences, and stories are read, not pictures.  AR provides a logical, linguistic presentation of the 70 phonemes, comprehension and literature.  Reading, writing, spelling, and grammar are all taught together and we encourage strong parental involvement.   Kids R Kids Clayton is excited about the integration of a formal phonics agenda in our Junior Kindergarten Program.

Enrichment Lessons
We are proud to offer Junior Kindergarteners an extension of extra-curricular activities such as creative art, music & movement, science & gardening, and character development. These lessons are captured on the classroom schedule and are incorporated into the class at an exclusive level!   Combined, these lessons edify skills and habits in a broad range of subject matter, creativity, and behaviors.  Lessons include hands-on activities that provide extended forums for discovery, growth, achievement, and reward.  In addition the classroom’s computer center provides lesson-based, relevant programs that support the classroom agenda.

Classroom Blueprint
The Junior Kindergarten Program is themed ‘Junior K Jungle.’  Five-Star Program criteria require a specific layout of centers, materials, furniture, standards, and quality.  Classroom includes library and literature, computer center, interactive Smartboard, STEAM, language arts, and writing exploration. The structure mirrors a kindergarten classroom in layout, schedule, and curriculum.  Our program establishes a foundation for kindergarten and elementary school readiness that develops each child’s confidence and independence in an engaging, FUN atmosphere.  You will be as proud as we are!
