Kindergarten Enrichment

Ages 5-6

Our innovative and comprehensive Kidemics program ensures the important early learning skill sets and developmental milestones attained during the preschool years continue to be reinforced, practiced, enriched and extended daily. Our use of ateliers provides a unique experience and ensures consistency and in-depth learning is applied to educational explorations and artful play experimentations in both academics and artistry. By emphasizing higher mental function skills, scaffolding both right and left brain activities and utilizing Gardner’s MI theory, children are provided a solid foundation for success both in school and in life.  Guided by a qualified elementary educator, our enriched kindergarten curriculum will provide an emphasis on reading, writing, spelling, mathematics, history, culture and social studies in an integrated arts approach, STEM projects, sports and outdoor stewardship. Kinders can join us in the afternoon for two, three or five-day programs. Our aesthetically pleasing classroom environment also complements your child’s learning and growth as an effective third teacher.
