Kinder Skills Program

Kinder Skills is a fun stimulating program for three-, four-, and five-year-olds designed to prepare children socially and academically to succeed in kindergarten. Through this structured recreation-based program your child will learn about sharing and following directions, as well as kindergarten readiness skills such as using a pencil, learning letters, counting numbers, and recognizing colors and shapes. 

Classes are ongoing with every session offering new lessons. Children enjoy stories, poems, songs, art projects, a variety of color, shape, numbers and letters recognition activities, while practicing separating from their parents, sharing with others, and paying attention to instructions. Increased emphasis on letter recognition, beginning math concepts, and school readiness.
