A little more “worldly-wise”, with greater vocabulary, and sense of self, this class offers fun ways for children to work together in groups through collaborative activities (building, imaginative play, etc.). With a two out of the three days drop-off, it’s an opportunity for children to learn to be even more independent and rely on trusted adults for assistance. Longer circle time, greater emphasis on story-telling, conversations, and following instructions are emphasized. Pre-academic skills, such as counting, spelling, using scissors, among others, are introduced.

Parent education topics include:

  • Age appropriate guidance and discipline,
  • Age appropriate expectation and developmental milestones,
  • Sexuality development,
  • Creativity and imagination,
  • Pre-academic readiness,
  • Preparing for school registration,
  • Developing friendships
