After the holidays, we began to look ahead to the next school year! Believe it or not, it will come sooner than you think or want! Please feel free to discuss your desires/options for your child with your teachers who may offer some suggestions, or of course, please see us in the office. If you would like to schedule an opportunity to visit a classroom, you are welcome to do so as well. What better way to see for yourself just how much the children are learning....even if it just looks like play!
Mrs. Carol Larson, Desert Shadows Elementary Kindergarten Teacher and a foremost expert in education will once again present a parent seminar on Kindergarten Readiness. Plan to attend Monday evening, January 14.
We remain committed to providing a strong foundation of learning through meaningful, age appropriate activities and challenges, which are best introduced in a play-based method in each class option. There are many options for that magical year after the three year old year, in either a Pre-Kindergarten three day or four day four year old program. Either option is designed to prepare a child to successfully transition to Kindergarten if emotionally and socially ready to do so. However, we even have the absolutely perfect class for the truly important often "gift" year of preschool. The curriculum in the Kindergarten Prep class is specifically designed to support the needs of the older student, which is any four year old turning five by 12/31 and for the already five year old who meets the age requirement of Kindergarten entrance but needs the "gift of another year" in the 5's class. Be assured...what ever the kiddos need....we'll take good care of them!!
Registration materials will be distributed at Parent/Teacher Conferences Thursday and Friday, January 31 and February 1.
Siblings and past siblings can register any time. Come on in!!!
