The program provides an easy transition from home to school. Center time and units of study are used to integrate all the curriculum areas. The children also participate in art, library, music and character education classes. Readiness handwriting skills are presented through the
Handwriting Without Tears program. In an atmosphere that promotes a sense of caring, emphasis is placed on interacting socially, developing independence and a positive self-image, accepting responsibility, and learning to listen and follow directions. This is a year for introduction to basic readiness skills: social, language, perceptual, and fine and gross motor. Hands-on, concrete activities and experiences encourage the learning process. Resource guests, field trips, and parental involvement extend the learning experiences.
