Our Program


4 – 5 years of age

The year before Kindergarten, children transition to the “Dragonfly” group.  We continue to expand on the foundation begun in the Butterfly classroom, increasing expectations as the children’s skills and interests multiply.  The children are challenged to participate in hands-on activities in all learning areas, individually, in small groups and in a large group.  In addition to pre-reading and beginning math activities, we encourage the opportunity and learning experiences for children that support age appropriate problem solving, critical thinking, communication, language and literary development, social skills and relationship building and decision making which fosters independence and responsibilities as well as opportunities to make choices.  We have a great relationship with the local Kindergarten teachers, meeting yearly to ensure are children will be successful in school.  Our goal is to create life-long learners ready to go off to Kindergarten.
