Kinder-Prep Week

Your Kinder-Camper’s reading readiness and pre-math skills won’t take a time out in the shade this summer. They will keep those skills sharpened through our fun approach to learning. Our circle time, projects, curriculum activities, water play and Science Lab will foster development of these skills, and more, for a smooth transition back to school in September.

Kindergarten Readiness

The Learning Path has a rich curriculum that prepares our students to become independent in the four main areas of development as well as preparing them for a successful transition into Kindergarten. Our theme-based curriculum incorporates pre-math, pre-reading and science skills within a play-based classroom. We use the Get Set for School curricula including Handwriting Without Tears in conjunction with our school curriculum to foster learning for all children. Through these curricula, and our small class size, each student is experiencing a hands on multisensory approach to learning.

Our students are exposed to Technology as a part of our learning philosophy. We utilize varying forms of technology including a Smart Board, Smart Table and iPads. Technology in the classroom is used as a compliment to our play based approach. Equally as beneficial is our living Children’s Garden in which students are exposed to the natural sciences throughout each season as an extension to our classroom.

We introduce center-based learning, in addition to whole group instruction and independent learning as used in Kindergarten. Through this busy, developmentally rich day, we are committed to placing a heavy emphasis on social and emotional development and self-esteem all while having fun and making life long friends.

Special Events

“Without hard work nothing grows but weeds” – Gordon B. Hinckley
Our children’s garden extends science and sensory lessons beyond the classroom. Children weed water plant and harvest throughout the year to maintain our fully functioning garden. During the spring and summer, we enjoy harvesting fruits and veggies for a healthy snack! Our children’s garden lends itself well to skill development in many areas and gets our students excited about things like healthy eating, working hard, and the science of it all. While our younger students learn from digging and feeling the dirt and seeing the difference between how different plants grow; our older students are learning about the cycle of plant growth and the difference between vining, rooting and stem growth. Our children’s garden adds an aesthetic feel to the school but behind the scenes it provides a very meaningful learning experience for our little green thumbs.

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” -Dr. Seuss

Literacy is a fundamental part of a child’s education. Through various avenues we work at instilling a love of reading in all of our children! Once each month, we invite an outstanding Story Teller to visit our school. This special assembly enables us to expand the love of reading beyond the classroom. Through music and visual props “The Story Lady” engages each of our children as books come alive!

“Challenge yourself to embrace the work beyond the walls of your home, beyond the roads in your neighborhood, beyond the lines that define your state beyond the country that you live in.” –unknown

Our school celebrates the diversity of all our children and families. Through our comprehensive curriculum we teach about the cultures and children around the world. This theme is present throughout our curriculum, however, in December, we focus on it through our World Tour.

Each class chooses a country to learn about. They spend time learning about the language, music, food, traditions, climate, and geography. Each age group decorates their room and classroom door with representations of what they have learned. At the end of the week everyone travels from country to county, stamping their passports and learning new things from around the world.

“The fact that children can make beautiful music is less significant than the fact that music can make children beautiful.” -Cheryl Lavender

Our children are submerged in music throughout each day and each spring they are excited to show off their musical abilities at our Spring Concert! This event is a “do not miss”, parent favorite! For our teachers it is an opportunity to show off multiple skills acquired throughout the school year. Children create their own individual costume, props and backdrop. Children learn and perform new songs as a class as well as a grand finale as a school. Our Spring Concert promotes public speaking, self-esteem and confidence, creativity and fun!

 

“Play is the highest form of research” – Albert Einstein
Each Spring we partner with a local farm to give our children a hands on Science Experience. Our children care for chick eggs and learn what they need to survive and thrive. We then are able to watch them hatch and grow into fuzzy little chicks. The children get to experience the biology and basic needs of newborn chicks. They love spending a week observing them, playing with them, and caring for them. We then give them a warm goodbye as they head off back to the farm.
