Our Kindergarten Prep program consists of national and state regulated standards. The units are comprised of academic themes, and incorporate literature-based studies. Our program’s goal is to meet the needs of each student, and encourage positive learning strategies. Here students will gain knowledge and information to create their own direction of learning experiences.
The Kids ‘R’ Kids Prep Kindergarten curriculum was designed for continuous educational growth, allowing students to apply academic content with theory-based discoveries in independent, peer, or teacher-directed activities. The program encourages students to think “outside of the box” and apply what they have learned to realistic situations.
Our Kindergarten Prep program was built with 6 academic categories and 3 sub-categories. The 6 categories are comprised of academic studies including history, science, language, literacy, mathematics, character development, and creative expression. The 3 sub-categories correlate with academic studies, and each holds 5 academic learning tubs. These tubs will help increase student understanding of the subject material discussed. These activities introduce and build independent and cooperative learning skills.
