Infant

3 Months - 1 year old

We recognize that experiences in the first years of life influences each child’s long-term brain development. Thus, we are here to make sure that your child is exposed to the best learning environment there is. Our infant program welcomes children early in their lives. Our environment is safe, healthy, and stimulating. We focus on fostering basic trust in the child. Kinder Pep infant’s furniture and learning materials are placed on the child’s eye level, keeping the child’s interests in mind.

We follow the natural rhythms of young children through a predictable day. Your infant’s sleeping and eating patterns will be observed and honored. Your child will explore their environment with many sensorial activities, develop and strengthen muscles tone, discover different textures, learn new songs, play with different instruments and explore many stimulating age appropriate activities.

They will learn object permanence, develop fine and gross motor skills, and Once your child can crawl, they will learn through direct experience, choosing their own activities within a carefully prepared classroom environment.

"The child’s development follows a path of successive stages of independence, and our knowledge of this must guide us in our behavior towards him. We have to help the child to act, will and think for himself. This is the art of serving the spirit..."
Dr. Maria Montessori

Toddler

1 year - 2 years old

Toddlers will intuitively discover concepts, learn language, solve simple problems, develop muscle control, and learn self-care skills as they explore specially designed materials. Activities are positioned around the room so that toddlers may choose among them. They are free to explore and are given the time they need to complete whatever they start. The activities allow toddlers to experience sequence, form, shape, movement, and sound-and the offerings evolve as the children grow physically, emotionally, and intellectually. Furniture and learning materials are child-sized. Everything needed to complete tasks and achieve success is accessible.

Kinder Prep Toddler curriculum at this level is focused on activities that adapt to the changing curiosities and individual characteristics of each child. Toddler develop concepts such as space, self, and surroundings, through movement and music. The toddler classrooms are setup to offer a variety of unique experiences for children. Each section of the classroom offers a different activity choice for our toddlers.

Early Preschool

2 years - 3 years old

Kinder Prep recognizes that children have an inner ability to explore and learn on their own. Early Preschoolers can walk into the classroom by themselves, they can take off and hang up their own jackets and backpacks. They learn to use the toilet and to wash and dry their hands and faces. They learn by interacting with classroom materials, by moving, and by observing other children - and by teaching other children themselves. Kinder Prep Preschoolers grow confidence and independence. They enjoy learning to do real-world tasks for themselves - and parents enjoy seeing these skills put to use at home. In Kinder Prep, our approach is based on the premise that children’s earliest experiences help them become peaceful, caring, sensitive, and healthy individuals.

Children learn to trust themselves and the world and to recognize their own competence. They learn to make decisions and to understand that their behavior affects others, who also have needs and wants. They learn to appreciate nature, to care for their bodily needs, and to persist. They develop a love of learning and experience the satisfaction of success.

Preschool

3 years - 4 years old

The foundation structured early in life creates self-confident adults who are driven to contribute. Development during this age focuses on learning to become independent. The educational environment in our classrooms supports the natural drive which enables the child to become confident. Children are guided toward making their own choices, so that they are able to work on what interests them, within appropriate limits. Thus, the children begin to develop an authentic sense of self. We encourage a strong sense of community by working closely with our families.Respect for self, for others, and for the environment is nurtured in order to guide a child towards self-discipline. As our children are treated with respect by adults, they learn to treat themselves and others in kindness.

Using Creative Curriculum allows us to develop children's imaginations by providing exciting stimulus and then allowing children to explore themselves. It is exciting for the adults to share and celebrate the children's ideas and enthusiasm, and with guidance, children are able to meet academic milestones. Our early preschool classrooms are rich with advanced materials to challenge our students. Children have access to a variety of activities geared to their physical, intellectual and social development. Our individualized approach creates an environment where learning is meaningful and self-motivated.

Pre Kindergarten

4 years - 5 years old

At this stage, children have a natural desire to be social and collaborate with their classmates. Often working in pairs or small groups aids in allowing the children to learn how to navigate sharing ideas, and how to deal with differences. Practical life skills are continued as the children work towards self-care and independence. Having a class job each week gives children a sense of responsibility and ownership.They take ownership of their classroom through cooking, cleaning, and caring for the plants that live in the classroom. Children thrive with their hands on exploration of language, math, science, and arts. Each day begins with the children asking questions and deciding as a class what to investigate together. The repetition of class routines helps the children to develop the ability to concentrate,focus, and self- correct.
