In this class, we teach the kids everything they need to know to be ready for Kindergarten academically and socially in an age appropriate way. We have created an environment that focuses largely on teaching the children decision making skills not only in independent situations, but with their peers. We have a good balance of teacher directed and child directed activities and spend a lot of time outdoors in our garden! Our Zoo-Phonics curriculum introduces beginning reading skills/phonics to the children through songs, finger plays and small group activities. We emphasize science, music, math, foreign languages, dramatic play, number and letter recognition, art, daily small and gross motor activity, writing, reading and story dictation. We take a hands on approach to this curriculum by teaching through games, songs, and activities that keep the interest of the children. At Creative Sprouts, our students learn to love school and look forward to coming. Our program allows children to learn how to positively interact with each other in a stimulating, enriching, very social environment. Children leaving our program are academically prepared for Kindergarten AND they have the social tools to work through conflicts with their peers as well as a strong sense of independence and self-confidence!
