The Dinosaurs are “roaring” and ready to go as they enjoy their year preparing for kindergarten and enhancing their skills.
As in all classes, we continue to address the individual needs of each child to enhance their strength and strengthen their weaknesses.
Cognitive skills include material to further develop visual perception and discrimination, auditory discrimination, concept development, gross motor skills and fine motor skills.
Letter recognition, sound-symbol relationships using the “alpha” program and huggable THE LETTER PEOPLE are very effective to encourage early literacy. THE LETTER PEOPLE also include a lesson in values such as respect and kindness with each letter.

Music and art are included every day as well as outdoor play.
