    Our infant care staff will work with you to not only make a smooth transition into our program, but also sing, read and talk to them. We like to bring smiles on both your child’s face and your own. Also, we are totally committed to creating a strong bond with your child to ensure a solid foundation for his/her lifetime.

     

    • Enriching environment with age appropriate toys, games and music to stimulate development.

    • Building Kidz provides nurturing personal care to build self-esteem.

    • Our Day Care has activities and group interactions to create interest and curiosity as your child grows.

    • Our Child Care providers get on the floor to play with them and explore to promote cognitive and motor skills.

    Ongoing communication with teachers, including daily notes, so that you are informed about your child’s day at our daycare center.

  • Preschool Program

    Children between the ages of 2-6 start developing physical coordination, begin to combine ideas and learn more complex games, all the while learning about themselves and each other. Our preschool curriculum introduces language, math, science and social skills in a way to encourage learning at the child’s own pace.

    Our teachers also provide plenty of individual attention to support your child’s unique needs. They strengthen their cognitive skills with fun memory games and opportunities for hands-on experience, such as creating collages, which combines creative expression with a tactile experience.

    • Math and science skills are developed with hands-on experiences. Language experiences are introduced to support literacy and language development.

    • Monthly curriculum is posted to keep parents informed. Introduction and exposure to performing arts: 2 lessons in Dance/Theatre/Voice and Music each week.

  • Kindergarten

    Our Kindergarten curriculum focuses on developing foundational skills that prepare students for later learning in the areas of math, science, social studies and language arts.

    Reading

    Phonics, understanding the alphabet and its role for beginner readers is a primary instruction in kindergarten, as well as comprehension of what is read. Students begin to develop writing skills with guidance by using a combination of drawing, storytelling, and writing to convey an event or share an opinion. Group discussions of books are lead and students begin to identify characters, settings, and major events in a story. They start asking and answering questions about the essential elements of a story. Recitation of poems, rhymes, and singing of songs helps them recognize and use complete, coherent sentences when speaking and to spell independently using their phonetic ability and growing knowledge of vocabulary and the sounds of the alphabet.

    Writing

    With the introduction of phonetics, students begin to understand and document their ideas in words. They write, using real letters, and spell out words phonetically. Students are also introduced to the computer as a tool to produce and publish writing projects. Participation in these writing activities reinforces students’ use of language conventions, new vocabulary, and analytical skills.

    Language

    Students begin to learn and use English conventions in their writing activities, when speaking, and when asking and answering questions about the stories and informational texts they read or hear about. They learn to use common, frequently occurring nouns and verbs and to form regular plural nouns by adding /s/ or /es/ to the end of words. They use frequently occurring prepositions (e.g., to, from, in, out) and participate in shared language activities in which they produce and then expand complete sentences. They learn to write sentences that begin with a capital letter and end with the correct punctuation. They capitalize the pronoun I in thei writing. They demonstrate understanding of common verbs and adjectives by relating them to their opposites, and sort common objects into categories. Learning and practicing English language conventions help kindergarten students prepare for writing independently in later grades.

    Mathematics

    Kindergarten focuses on understanding the relationship between numbers and quantities. Kindergarteners learn to count to 100 by 1s and 10s, and write numbers from 0 to 20. Students learn that each number refers to a quantity that is one larger as they count objects and say the corresponding number names. Kindergarteners count objects (as many as 20) to answer “how many?”

    • Addition is represented using a variety of approaches; i.e, objects, fingers, drawings, sounds, verbal explanations or equations.
    • Subtraction is represented by putting together items and taking them apart and to solve problems up to 10.
    Science

    Our students are introduced to life science, physical science, earth science and space science. They explore materials, objects, and events by observing them, altering them and noticing what happens. We encourage them to use all their senses to make careful observations of objects, organisms, and events, thereby developing measurement and classifying skills. They engage in simple investigations including making predictions, gathering, recording and interpreting data, recognizing simple patterns, and drawing conclusions.

    • Science is taught twice a week for 30 minutes.
    Parent/Teacher Conferences

    Parent/Teacher conferences are scheduled at the beginning of the year, middle and end of year. Teachers also provide on-going assessments/portfolios, to acknowledge the skills each child has mastered and to note the skills that they are to revisit.

  • kindergarten, [ˈkɪndɐˌɡaːɐ̯tn̩]), literally children’s garden is a preschool educational approach traditionally based on playing, singing, practical activities such as drawing, and social interaction as part of the transition from home to school. [- WikiPedia]

    Social Studies

    The social studies curriculum encourages each student to understan their role and obligations as a citizen. This is accomplished by instruction in geography, history and culture. Students will learn the rights/responsibilities of citizenship, value his/her role in the human community and understand fairness and social justice.

    Geography

    Use of maps and globes to locate land and water areas identify address of home, city, state, country.

    History

    Learn about historical figures and their contributions to society; i.e., Washington, Lincoln, Martin Luther King, Jr. America’s national symbols and landmarks are identified; i.e., Thanksgiving Day, Columbus Day, Independence Day, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

    Social/Cultural

    Learn the importance of family and community distinguish ways in which people are the same and different.

    Spanish

    Introduction to Spanish incorporates songs, drawing, coloring, and cultural visual aids. Our children learn more easily when taught by song, especially when hand and body gestures are added. This engages children kinesthetically, and music and songs also help to reinforce Spanish pronunciation and accent as well as vocabulary.

    • Spanish is taught twice a week for 30 minutes by a native born speaker.
  • School Age

    Our innovative before- and after-school program offers age-appropriate activities for every child.  Watch your child improve problem-solving skills through science experiments; express themselves in dance, music and musical theater.  They will advance academically through reading and language activities, as well as build solid social skills and friendships during free time with classmates.

    Research shows that participation in after school programs influences academic performance. Our teachers plan curriculum based on the child’s interests and have focus weeks during breaks in the school year. With that said, academics are taught by incorporating them in fun educational activities and projects.

    Our school provides state of the art computers so that our children have the opportunity to learn using different medias. We provide educational software which includes academic support and educational games. Our students are able to research information that they are interested in, as well as the usage for homework. Teachers monitor computer use and provide educational support in learning technology.

    School-age children can learn about a variety of media, explore the three-dimensional form, and discover different ways to work with textures by engaging in hands-on sculpture making activities. They can create simple human and animal form by working with soft modeling clay. They can also construct complicated forms and work with materials such as metal wire, wood, and glue.

    Our Homework Club offers children the opportunity to work on their homework in a quiet and supportive environment. We have qualified teachers that are there to help guide, and answer any questions that students may have. Each child will have their own desk and we pride on having small group sizes so each child will receive adequate attention.

    The benefits of our Homework Club are:

    • Improved grades as our teacher’s help children stay on task
    • Build confidence with extra support for our teachers
    • Increase attention span and concentration due to a quiet environment

    Our program uses the LEGO robotic kit that enables students to discover science, technology, engineering and mathematics in a fun, engaging and hands-on way.

    Robotics offers many benefits:

    • Students will learn a basic, but strong understanding of the functionality of robotics
    • Students develop creativity and problem-solving skills along with other important mathematics and science knowledge. They learn to improvise and create new ways of building and programming existing robots
    • Students become more skilled in communication, organization and research, which help prepare them for future success in higher levels of schooling and in the workplace
    • Students will learn to work cooperatively and communicate effectively in small groups to achieve a specific goal
    • Students will gain confidence with science, math, and technology related subjects in school. After this experience, students will approach school science projects at a higher level of accomplishment.
