While similar in style and routine to our preschool classrooms, the focus of our junior kindergarten program is elementary preparedness.
Along with a strong foundation in the Creative Curriculum, our comprehensive program is supplemented on a daily basis using Handwriting Without Tears. This reading, writing, and math readiness program is engaging, straightforward, and hands-on in addition to being incredibly child friendly and extremely effective.
Our junior kindergarten program expands to provide an age appropriate technology component encouraging children to navigate the computer and learn the beginning skills of computer use while providing exposure to relevant academic software programs.
A junior kindergartner’s day consists of:
• self-selected play
• circle time
• literacy and writing activities
• reading opportunities
• creating art
• group activities
• focused math and science activities
• computer time
• outdoor play
