Kinder Cottage Information

4 through 5 years old

We would like to foster the child’s self esteem and self help skills, while introducing him/her to a more academic curriculum. Specifically, Pre-Kindergarten Readiness. We emphasis positive social interaction in a family group setting. We encourage independence and problem solving. Above all, we would like the children to experience a positive, fun and nurturing environment for them to grow, as well as succeed.

Each day consists of special time for free play, circle, art, music, calendar, story time, exploration, dramatic play, small motor skill, large motor and outdoor/farm play or a planned field trip (a weekly curriculum schedule is posted). Music and Art class are offered weekly, opposite weeks, so that all may participate.

Our curriculum incorporates a nationally recognized core program The Letter People. This is a balanced early literacy program that introduces the children to the letters of the alphabet thematically, while teaching a life lesson. Each letter person unit encourages development in the cognitive, language, mathematical, musical, large/small motor and artistic areas. The children will also be introduced to the basics of Spanish & French. This curriculum is flexible, which enables us to plan accordingly for each child.

Class Size: Limited to 16-18 children daily with two teachers
