Preparing Your Child for Kindergarten

 

Preschoolers love to explore through hands-on activities. At Just Like Home our Hand Writing Without Tears Get Set For School curriculum features Readiness & Writing, Language & Literature and Numbers & Math programs that are based on the best early-childhood standards from across the nation. Our preschool curriculum is designed to develop important foundational skills like literacy, mathematical thinking and problem solving while stimulating your child's creativity, with proven success in preparing students for Kindergarten.

At this age, children require challenges and respond to motivation and crave praise. Recognizing that your preschooler needs to be engaged and nurtured at the same time, our highly trained teachers give both the freedom and instruction to thrive.

Fostering Your Preschooler's Love of Learning

 

The Preschool classroom at Just Like Home is designed to help your child become a part of the learning community, where they not only build skills vital to success in Kindergarten, but also respect for others and a sense of confidence. In designated areas throughout our safe learning environment, your preschooler will engage in a range of activities geared to prepare them for kindergarten and life beyond.

It incorporates journals and portfolios to encourage communication through drawing and writing. Your preschooler will also learn important social skills in our Word Time Program. The typical daily structure for your preschooler might include:

  • Morning and Afternoon Circle time where the day's themed activities are introduced and reviewed.

  • Activities in the Learning Centers to bring the day's educational theme to life.

  • Literacy and Language enrichment to build emerging language skills.

  • Music and movement (songs, poems and rhymes) to expand your child's vocabulary and listening skills.

  • Outdoor play at least twice daily to burn off energy and develop motor skills.

  • Lunch and quiet time to nourish and rest your child's growing mind and body.

You'll receive assessments regularly through daily written reports, ongoing portfolio collections, family/teacher conference, so you can rest assured that your preschooler is progressing throughout the year.
