For Kids’ Sake is a perfect place for your child to prepare for his/her Kindergarten experience.. Our loving and supportive teachers use multiple teaching strategies to help children practice their beginning reading and writing skills, explore basic math and science skills, learn cooperation and listening skills, and most-importantly, foster a lifelong love of learning.
During a typical day, your child will actively participate in a morning circle time in which he or she will discuss calendar, counting, phonics, weather, and the days’ events. He/she will circulate through a round of centers in which various manipulatives and reading, writing, and art activities will be available. Children will focus on writing their capital letters and phonetically spelling words. Outside play is an important part of our everyday activities at FKS. If weather permits, we will go outside twice every day. Your child will also create art projects, learn and practice important social skills such as taking turns, playing cooperatively, and conflict resolution. We have created an environment where you child will be fully prepared for the physical, academic, and physical requirements of kindergarten.
