TK-K All-Inclusive Program

...getting ready for a lifetime of learning

Our Kindergarten program engages students in S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math)-focused learning through hands-on interaction. Our program aims to challenge the traditional classroom by transforming the environment into a thematic learning experience. Through our program, students will have the opportunity to apply math, science, and writing in diverse settings from cooking to computer science. By fostering curiosity and a love of life-long learning, our students will build a foundation of cooperative learning, cumulative understanding, and practical experience.

 

We offer a Full-Day Kindergarten Program as well as Half-Day program for kids who attend public AM or PM school. In order to maintain a small student:staff ratio, spaces are limited.

Our Kinder Philosophy

This February, our Kinder Students will focus on learning about different cultures so that they can develop cultural competence and demonstrate appreciation and respect for multiple dimensions of diversity. Students will enjoy the festivities that surround Chinese New Years by hosting a talent show and potluck. February is also known as Black History month, so students will also learn about empowering and brave African American leaders in history. Our reading books will be centered around this topic. Next, students will celebrate Valentine's as not only a day filled with candy and sweets, but also as a day we use to express appreciation and love for family and friends. And lastly, students will briefly explore the beautiful and mysterious outer space!

Program Details

Imagination Playground

Imagine your child more creative, social, active, confident, learning, and having more fun. Unlike toys, which often are limited in the number of ways you can play with them, blocks are open-ended. They empower children to use their imagination to build their own world, rather than inhabit one we create for them. Kids try new things and stretch their abilities.

Theme of the Week

Having a weekly theme for kids helps nurture their creative spirit and keeps them interested in learning. Math Monday, Science Tuesday, Sharing Wednesday, Reading Thursday & Art/ Cooking Friday.

Sample Theme of the Week

Etiquette & Life Skills

Through our Etiquette & Life Skills program, our kinders will watch videos and role play similar scenarios to practice their life skills with asking help, interacting in public, setting boundaries, being polite, respectful and problem solving.

 

Hands-On Science

In Hands-On Science, students use their five senses to learn about the world around them. Plant a garden full of healthy vegetables while learning about the plant cycle, blow a bubble tower to see how water tension works, and build an explosive volcano to watch a chemical reaction take place!

Circle Time/ Read-A-Loud

We will use this time to establish routine, interact with multicultural stories, and engage with each other during show-and-tell. Circle Time supports the development of socialization, listening skills, and fine and gross motor skills. Read-a-loud increases students’ engagement, understanding, and appreciation of literature.

Kinder Math Infinity

KMI aims to foster good habits and attitudes towards learning. It is designed for students Pre-K to 1st grade. KMI emphasizes independent and active problem solving (observation, thinking, judgement, execution). Children will learn to analyze, discover, think and solve. By practicing manipulatives, they become concentrated and more careful. Their abilities to do logical reasoning, to handle 3D space, and to correspond shapes and colors are also greatly enhanced in the course.

Arts, Crafts & Cooking

Kinders will participate in art and cooking activities related to the theme of the week! Whether it is painting, folding origami or even toasting delicious s'mores,  students will enjoy their time each other.

Chinese, Hindi & Spanish

Recent research shows that bilingual children outperform monolingual children on tasked that tap into executive function— skills having to do with attention control, reasoning, and flexible problem solving. We are strong believers in the benefits of being bilingual, so we offer daily language classes for the students.
