What is it like to be a Parrot?
Our Parrots class for 4-5 year olds is designed to prepare children for kindergarten by integrating pre-literacy academic skills (alphabet recognition, counting, sorting, shapes, colors, etc) into our thematic approach to curriculum. Children participate in hands-on play, stories, songs, fingerplays, art projects, large motor games, and other activities specific to the weekly theme for their class. A sense of community is fostered as the children carry out their "jobs" and participate in Show & Tell and story telling opportunities.
The Parrots' classroom is organized into numerous centers for small group and individual instruction: art, manipulatives, building, housekeeping, reading, writing, computers, media, and math. Some centers are open-ended and children driven, and many hands-on activities are available during center time. The teacher and assistant also work one-on-one and with small groups of children on specific readiness skills to ensure that those students moving on to kindergarten are prepared to do so.
In addition to the enriching daily activities, the children enjoy a Bible Story once a week (optional), Science Wonders (2-3x a month), Art, and Music and Movement.
