Grades: K | 30 students
At Jack N Jill Kindergarten & Child Care Center, Our teachers provide curriculum designed with opportunities for the early learner to participate in experiences that provide foundations for learning. The Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten curriculum promotes active involvement by children in their own learning process, recognizing that young children learn through play, active manipulation of the environment, concrete experiences, and communicating with peers and adults. The early learner learns expressive vocabulary and articulation skills as they participate in their imaginary restaurant; making menus, taking orders, preparing and serving food. The young student learns ways of representing numbers and relationship among numbers when they use their fingers to act out “The Five Little Monkeys jumping on the Bed.” The early learner becomes the “Scientist” when he predicts what will happen to the play-dough when left uncovered, or comes to understand that living things go through predictable life cycles by observing the life cycle of a caterpillar found in the playground.
