As your child approaches Kindergarten, it is natural for you to contemplate their readiness to meet the joys and challenges of a different academic environment. Our Pre-K classroom is both a continuation of our early childhood “play is their work” philosophy, and an intentional strategy to provide the skills and attitudes that are indicators of success in school. As a Pre-Kindergartener at Today’s Life, your child builds math and science concepts through experiences with different materials and manipulatives, engages in conversational Spanish, has social experiences that foster teamwork, and participates in joyful interactions with music that fosters all areas of development.
The process of learning to read and write in early childhood is based on meaningful experiences with text and language. Stories, rhymes, singing and conversation with adults all contribute to your child’s emerging literacy. Your Pre-K child has opportunities throughout the day to discover the connections between letters and sounds. While art continues to be a sensory experience, it also provides exploration in the use of tools and pre-writing skills that require fine motor development.
In addition to an individual daily summary, our classroom messages and monthly newsletters keep you in touch with what is going on in your child’s classroom. Regular conferences give us time to talk in depth about your child’s progress but your child’s teacher is always available to answer questions and discuss how your child is doing. Being ready for Kindergarten is more than just being a certain age. Today’s Life graduates transition to Kindergarten ready to learn, grow and thrive as confident and independent lovers of learning.
