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
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..."
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
