Pre Kindergarten Program
4 to 5 years
The pre-kindergarten program prepares each child for the critical transition from preschool to kindergarten. The program assures that each child will be ready for the academic and social challenges of the kindergarten classroom. Our weekly structured curriculum focuses on developing, sharpening and reinforcing art, science, math, writing, reading and social skills. Our "family team" helps to strengthen each child's decision making and self help skills in a safe supportive classroom environment.
The pre-kindergarten classroom is set up to allow preschoolers to involve themselves in independent decision making in their classroom. The children can explore dramatic play, computer activities, literary activities, discovery science projects, a quiet reading area and a building and construction area.
Safety and Training
Our "family team", made of highly educated and qualified teachers, is certified in CPR, First Aide, and Diabetes training. Anna's Bananas has a professional nurse visit monthly to inspect the safety of the center's environment and to review and discuss any illness that has been reported in the last month.
Anna's Bananas knows how important it is to keep the parents involved in their child's daily activities, development and milestones. That's why we provide you with the following:
- Parent-teacher conferences twice a year
- The building of personal relationships with each family
- Encouraging daily/weekly calls or emails from parents to our "family team" to support communication
- Open door facility; we promote parent visits to the center at anytime to observe or participate in their child's day.
