Preschool at Kidzone helps children build
reading skills, self-confidence and a love for
learning. To meet the developmental needs of three, four and five
year-olds, we offer programs based upon the latest
research and best practices in child development and early
education. Classrooms, playgrounds, gymnasium and libraries are designed to encourage
safe exploration, allowing children to discover, have fun and
learn. The entire program is designed to be engaging
and fun, so children don't just learn, they love to learn. We
offer a half day session of preschool for 3-5 years olds from 8:30am –
12:30pm Monday- Thursday. The rest of the day is learning through
- Every Kidzone preschool room is divided into clearly defined learning
areas, each offering a wide range of interesting materials and activities
at a child's eye level.
- A Language/Library Area filled with books and
- A Math/Manipulative Area with materials that
encourage counting, grouping and sorting.
- A Creative Arts Area to explore their
- A Home living/Dramatic Play Area for role-playing
- A Science Area for exploring basic concepts using
simple materials, such as plants, magnets or small pets.
- A Computer center for software and technology
- Learning doesn't stop when kids go outside to enjoy the Kidzone
playground. Just like a classroom, the playground is divided into specific
areas that encourage learning through play. Your child can choose from a
variety of activities, including quiet learning, nature study, and
imaginative play - along with some great sliding, climbing, riding, and
much more. Weekly trips to the gymnasium and our garden, will help
your child develop their large motor skills.
- Every day at Kidzone is
carefully structured to provide children with a balanced routine for
learning, growing, and enjoying their day. Short, focused group activities
are alternated with individual playtime, small group interactions and rest
periods to keep everyone smiling, playing and learning.
- Kidzone takes a
comprehensive approach to reading readiness that includes letter
recognition and phonics, plus many opportunities to experience the joy of
stories, books, poems and songs.
- Interesting manipulative materials, displayed at the children's eye
level, invite preschoolers to initiate their own learning throughout the
day. They also complement a variety of fun, informal learning activities
initiated by the teacher. Your child will be learning basic math
fundamentals as he or she practices counting, grouping, sorting, and
- Preschoolers at
Kidzone learn continually through interactions with the teacher and with
each other. Small and large group activities help prepare them for wider
social interactions, and imaginative play helps them practice the social
roles they see modeled at home and in the larger world.
- Arts are plentiful
at Kidzone, giving your child many opportunities to explore and create -
and to show you their masterpieces!
- After hours of excitement, fun and learning, your child needs rest. We
provide the cot and sheets. It's also fine if your child
brings a favorite blanket or sleep toy from home.
- Learning self-control is
just a normal part of growing up, so Kidzone policy is never to embarrass
or ridicule a child when he or she misbehaves. Nor do we allow the use of
corporal or physical punishment. Instead, we use positive tactics that
strengthen self-esteem. Most situations can be handled by redirecting the
child to another, more appropriate activity.
- Partnering with
parents is essential for consistent, positive experiences at both home and
school. Parents are aware of what is happening in the classroom through
posting of daily schedules and weekly lesson plans. Kidzone will conduct
parent and teacher conferences that will include written assessments of each
child's developmental progress at least twice per year. Of course all of
this supports an environment of open communication between parents and
Ready to Read
