Kindergarten Program Ages 5 To 6
Our Kindergarten programs offer before and after school care for your little ones the first year of school. The Learning Center provides transportation to and from your child’s public school, unless otherwise provided by the town. In each of the towns in which we provide service, the children do attend full day kindergarten at their assigned local school.
When returning to The Learning Center from school in the afternoon, children are offered arts and craft opportunities as well as the chance to play within the classroom stations. They are also able to participate in outside playtime. In the event the children are with us for an extended period of time, such as vacation weeks, our Kindergarten teachers plan activities that will place an emphasis on reinforcing the skills and knowledge that a child is acquiring during the Kindergarten school year.
The Learning Center provides all day care for Kindergarteners on days that the public school is not in session (professional development days, snow days, early release days, vacation weeks, and summer months). Peace of mind for a parent comes from knowing you will not have to struggle to find care on these days.
*The Learning Center has an open door policy. A parent is welcome to visit or call the center at anytime. If required, a conference with a child’s teacher can be scheduled through the Director.
We believe in educating the whole child - intellectually, physically, emotionally and socially
We Encourage play and exploration using age and developmentally appropriate activities which naturally stimulate a child's creative & cognitive awareness.
Since each child is an individual, we take into consideration unique developmental levels when planning activities.
